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.
You may recall the #1 Daughter (the first born) told me a few weeks ago I needed to reorganize. Her suggestion was "out with the Longaberger® baskets and in with the teapots!" She is coming to visit soon, so this post is to prepare her for the change. Unfortunately, daughter-dear, be prepared -- the baskets are stacked in storage bins so the basket-clutter was just moved to a different location! I have collected a lot of baskets in 13 years of being a Longaberger consultant. BTW, if you want to visit our very talented handmade-jewelry-maker and super-organized daughter's blog, click here.
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
