Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
My friend Janet is downsizing, selling her house and moving into a small condo. She is giving away a bunch of "stuff" accumulated over the years. The small etched aluminum teapot was made at The Aluminum Works in Stratford-on-Avon, England according the the inscription on the bottom. The teacup trio is Bavarian and there were four trios and several extra saucers and other dishes in the box of collectibles that made its way to my house. The old saying is true ~ one man's trash is another man's treasure! I just happen to be the lucky recipient of these tea treasures! Thank you, Janet!
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
