About Me

My Photo

I am a Docent and tour guide to the historic Hearthside House in Lincoln, RI. I have a passion for the Victorian era.

I am a lover of the art of drinking tea and have quit a lovely tea collection.

I am a mother of six beautiful children, who are my inspiration.


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!

Thank you for your loyal following.
Have a Beau-tea-ful day!

Lady's health tip:
A smile is good for your face
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.)
