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.
Angela over at Tea With Friends blogged today about the adorable teapot tin where she keeps business cards from tearoom visits. I have mentioned before about the journals I have for keeping photos, menus, and personal comments from teas I host and tearoom visits. This is a page out of one of those journals (actually a 3 ring binder) showing how I displayed the menu, business card and a couple of photos from a visit to Miss Daisy's Tea Room in Owensboro, KY.
Angela finds the best tea stuff in Georgia antique malls. If we were in the same antique mall, we would probably knock each other down diving after the same tea collectibles!!
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
