TEA QUOTE




Tea Quote
from 365 Things Every Tea Lover Should Know



The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy.  I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured coziness.  P.G. Wodehouse, The Code of the Woosters

I think such hospitality underrated in these days of relationships based mostly of on-line "friends'. True hospitality means an open home where a cup of tea, coffee, or water is quickly offered, along with any simple food on hand and then , as true hospitality will show, the host ( hostess ) will sit down with you as if there is nothing else on their mind except you, and simply be there to visit. And they will mean it too if true hospitality is their aim.

Oh what a neat quote. You know to this day buttered toast or buttered jam and bread will ALWAYS remind me of my mother.....so I guess goes the scent as well. Hugs.

These words of P.G. Wodehouse are so true. I like the embroidered tablecloth and napkins.

Your pretty linens and decor certainly add to the "coziness" factor as well!

Hi Bernideen, happy new year. What a wonderful quote, just the way I imagined it.
I love all your tea set and accessories. So feminine and delicate.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Hugs,

Love your china and linen collage - beautiful settings! LIke the quote too. The toast reference reminds me of another quote - "Bread and water can easily become tea and toast!"
