WEEK #5 Tea Blog-A-Thon


Hmmm....what to wear to tea...that is the question.

Whether to dress in finery and pearls, with heels and fur, hat and gloves, fine linen and lace, or to come to tea as you are.

There is a place and a season

under the sun for all things,

and yet remember

vanity, vanity,

all is vanity.




One might think it better to be on the front porch

with Tea in a tumbler

filled with ice and a sprig of fresh mint,

sipping away with a friend who has just stopped by

on a warm summer afternoon.

Though one may have been working in the garden in frock and sturdy apron donned with a straw hat, there is always time for tea with a friend. Come one come all, leave none out for it is not the tea that dictates the garb, but the fellowship with a friend that dictates tea time pleasures!

A friend loveth at all times!

Great post! I can't help but chuckle ~ yes, it's vanity but isn't it fun! SMILE! and since i'm in a jean skirt and lavendar t-shirt right now, I'll gladly accept your invitation to come "just as I am"! It looks wonderfully delicious!

I love the way you wove the two scriptures of a time for everything and all is vanity together ~ very cute!

I don't have my post up yet. We are very busy and it may have to wait another day or so.

You are right of course. But I still love to get dressed up! The picture of the hats and gloves brought back memories of my grandmother....
