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.
OK, I admit it! I am a "people watcher" and although the horses were magnificent on Wednesday, I took more photos at Churchill Downs of the hats! These hats are made by Anne Sawyer, the official Hat Designer for the Kentucky Derby Festival. The beautiful young lady in the two middle photos is Christina, Anne Sawyer's assistant. She sat at our table at lunch and gave us a little scoop on a celebrity to watch for on Saturday wearing one of their hats. Want a clue? think Dancing With the Stars... you'll have to watch TV on Saturday and see if you spot it!
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
