I love the Art of Taking tea. I find it to be a long lost art. I would love to go back in time and enjoy it the traditional way. Each afternoon, when I have the chance to sit back and relax, I enjoy a pot of good brewed tea. I sit and savor the moment and the delights of the tea with a good book or soft music. Come and join me, sit a spell, get comfortable and let's be tea friends! Lady Estelle
In preparing for my celebration of Spring, I wanted to add a little of the out doors inside, until I can get out in the garden. While searching for Spring decor, I found these two little fellows at a thrift Shop. They begged to come home with me. I could not resist.
They have adjusted well to the decor of the Parlor. Sitting comfortably under some plants they looks so real.
They are no bother, no fuss nor do I have to feed them. They give that sign that Spring is truly here.
We will have to celebrate the first couple of days inside, because we, here in New England are still having snow. Our mid afternoon days are warm with the sun shining though the windows.
But, by late afternoon and our nights are very chilly.
The Tea Corner is ready for a Spring Tea Party which is in the planning for this month.
There are so many ideas for a celebration at this time of year.
I am sure you have some Spring celebrations in progress. I would love to get a sneak preview. I am happy that Spring is finally here!
January is our time to make good on all those brave New Year’s resolutions that we made at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day! Many of us have started dieting, but as much as we may want to avoid it, good dieting needs to be balanced by proper physical exercise. To properly sustain our body and mind (remember the expression “sound body, sound mind?”) we need to engage in some form of regular physical activity. (A word of caution: always consult your physician before commencing any exercise regimen.)
