SHARING TEA BOOKS for "Friends Sharing Tea"

I love tea books and no matter how many
 I have, I always seem to find another.
These are my cookbooks:

And this area is just for tea books:

So I thought it would be fun
to share just a few of them this
week for "Friends Sharing Tea"
Blog Party.  "The Twelve Teas
of Christmas" is always a favorite
with Christmas coming soon:

Emilie Barnes has gone to be with
 the Lord but she left us with 
 many wonderful teatime books.
  I had the privilege of meeting her
 one time  when she was speaking 
at Glen Eyrie  in Colorado Springs. 
 She told me she had asked if there
 were any tea loving shops around
 and was told  about mine. 
 She talked with my 
husband and I a good hour and 
what a wonderful and humble
 woman of God!  This  book will give
 you so many ideas for Christmastime
 Teas!  This next book is also by
 Emilie and is both practical,
 inspirational and full 
of ideas for tea time celebrations.

The next one I am sharing is "English Tea & Cakes" which is a tea recipe book and has many ideas for tea parties and menus.

Back in 1991 Victoria Magazine came out 
with this next book and it has always been
beloved - "The Charms of Tea" will
be a book you can get lost in...

I remember many years ago being 
very excited to find the same table 
topper that I had seen in
 "The Charms of Tea".

"Let's Have Tea Together" was a sweet
 Holly Pond Hill book by Susan Wheeler.  The photos are darling and the book
 moves through the seasons
 to delight children:

And another Susan Wheeler book "Tea
With Victoria Rose" came out years ago
and was offered at that time with
a small child's teaset.  And I had to
laugh as all this time - I didn't notice
before but the inside of both of 
these the same!

Now I want to share "Tea With Jane Austen" 
because so many of you love Jane's books and the movies made from them:

Kim Wilson's book above has lots 
of fun tea trivia that surrounded 
Jane's life and recipes and ideas.

So now the last one I am sharing
takes us back to Emilie Barnes
and her precious book "The Little
Teacup That Talked"  This is still
available and is a wonderful
and meaningful book for a child:

Well, these are just a few of the books here
as we could spend all day going through
many more but I hope I at least presented
one of two you weren't familiar with!

If you are a tea blogger - 
I hope you can join my party
 today and I will be sharing at:
Tuesday Cuppa Tea
Home Sweet Home

Good morning Bernideen! You have a lot of books! But I suppose we do too although we have given many away in the past year because we thought we were down-sizing. That has been put on hold for now.
I don't have a lot of tea books but the ones I do have I love. Emilie Barnes is always a favourite of course. It is very cold here today and Autumn is fast becoming wintertime. On a really cold day there is nothing nicer than sipping a hot cup of tea and reading a book by the fire. Thank you for your lovely party and enjoy this day.

Love seeing your teabooks. Oh my! You have a lot. Tea books are always such a temptation.

Bernideen- What a wonderful library of teatime treasures you have there. You always do the most beautiful posts with your tea cups and just all the settings you do for your tea rituals. Beautiful!

Have a wonderful day- xo Diana

Hi Bernideen. What a great collection! I have quite a few too...pretty hard to pass up, aren't they? The Tea With Jane Austen and the Victoria tea books are my favorites, but it is hard to choose between so many wonderful options! Thanks for hosting and also for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea

Hi Bernideen! I so loved seeing all your books and some of your favorite tea time books. I would so love to browse through your collection. Your vignettes are so beautiful, too. Thank you so very much for hosting your gentle party.

Michele said...

Bernideen - you have a wonderful collection of tea books - WOW!

I love to grab a cuppa and grab my basket of mine and just look through them now and again - I keep them in a guest room in a guest can't sleep. : - )

Thanks for the party - so happy to be joining in the fun.

Hugs. ♥

Hi Bernideen,
I have been seeing your Antique Shop display come up on FB and also your beautiful tea cozies. I do wish I could visit your booth at the antique mall. Your collection of tea books is amazing today! Thank you for hosting Friends Sharing Tea. Blessings, Karen

Tea in Texas said...

Each tea book you picked is wonderful and a few I also have! Your tea book collection is extensive. The beautiful bookcases add so much charm. My favorite tea book is “If Teacups Could Talk” and love to read it over and over. My husband has a hiugh collection of Kennedy assaination books being in Dallas and a history major. He has taken the book shelves in the office, I really enjoyed seeing your post on your beautiful space at the antique mall in Columbia. We always stop there when we are traveling in Missouri! Thanks for hosting!

Bernideen, I love your cookbook collection and its special tea book section. Glad I have a teatime recipe to add to the party this week.

Bernideen, I always visit all the tea friends here, but I can never comment on Thelma's posts as she has Google+ commenting. I like to remind everyone that when you have Google+ commenting, only people who are on Google+ can leave a comment, and lots and lots of us are not on it. :-(

The Charm of Home said...

Bernideen, how awesome is your book collection! I love cookbooks and tea books. I too have been collecting and they are fun to cook out of and look through! Thanks for hosting!

Those books really inspire a tea break today! Beautifully done.

Margie said...

Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection of tea books. I only have a handful of tea books but your post has inspired me to read some tonight! Thank you for hosting, Bernideen.

I would love to browse through those books, Bernideen. I bet they have lots of pretty pictures too. I think I only have less than 5 tea books. Thanks for hosting!...Christine

Deanna Rabe said...

I dearly loved Emilie Barnes and hope to have tea with her one day in heaven. I want to thank her for how she mentored me, through her books. I have many of them.

Two Cottages And Tea said...

My goodness you have a lot of tea books and cookbooks! Last winter I gave away most of my cookbooks to a younger friend who loves to cook. Trying to downsize! I enjoyed seeing your collection! Thank you for hosting your party!
