Tea on Tuesday

Limoges, java and sweet memories

Today tea is actually a lovely aromatic French roast in my thrift store Limoges “The Countess” tea cup. The napkin is a hankie that mom brought back from France, while on a trip through Europe, where she and dad met on holiday.

I am looking through a bag full of Wedding cards that were sent to my mom and dad on their special day. The cards are all so beautiful and creative, I just marvel at how much time was spent on them. The orchids pop out on the card in the upper left hand corner, and there is a small package of real rice in the card on the lower right hand corner.

Well I am off for a walk, and later a little pampering (you can’t drink from a cup called “The Countess” and not take it to heart), mani-pedi and the car gets a bath! Yeah, such little treats are worth so much!

Do something nice for yourself today, you know how much you will thank yourself for doing it! And please join Patty, Kimmie, Pat and the rest of the ladies for Tea for Tuesday (even if it is coffee), you are certainly most welcome! Enjoy- Christen
