All Things Tea
I've been extrememly busy these past few months but have been wanting to share "Gracious Hospitality Blog-A-Thon"with you.
I learned of it from a "Kindred spirit" over at "The Quiet Pleasures of Home". Both of these sites as well as many others are sharing All things Tea to beautify the home and share their stories of frineds and family.
This weeks Theme is Decor-a-Tea
The title of the print is "Suspense".
I picked up this print in a second hand shop and have it hanging in my kitchen. It reminds me to be thankful for the things God provides for me each and everday, and to live simply and to be content with such things as He has provided. Great Grandma my MIL) has been staying with us and has found great pleasure in the print as well. She has Alzheimers so each morning the print was a pleasant surprise to her. She especially liked the cat and dog waiting for the little girl to finish praying so that they might receive a bit of toast.
The print "Suspense" inspired me to make some homemade bread and hard boiled eggs and enjoy a breakfast with a friend. The tea pot was a gift from a family member many years ago. I spotted it in a local tea shop at the time and added it to my Christmas wish list. I posted the recipe for the bread at my other website "Ladybug's Garden"
This was the beginning of my tea cup collection a few years ago after our sons moved out of the house. I sure enjoyed raising boys, but with three men in the house and only I who appreciated "fu" as they called it, it was better not to display such things. The boys are grown now and we joke now about the times when "we just couldn't have nice things." The Cukoo clock is from a trip to Europe a few years back. I picked it up at a castle in Switzerland along the Rhine River at the Falls.A most beautiful place! As for the prints, I made them after I finished a Bible College class on I Corintihans to remind me...Faith will come to an end. Hope will be fullfilled. Love will endure forever!
