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.
"Twas the Night Before Christmas" was sponsored by Community Trust Bank and hosted by Donna A.
won the Best of Show Award.
I like the way Donna used assorted Tea of Life™ pyramids and the ribbon from the box to decorate the tree. Donna is well-known for her excellent homemade candies. She incorporated a dish of chocolates in her table decorations.
"Tea and Pink Roses" was sponsored and decorated by Barbara S., boardmember of the Berea Health Ministry. Barbara's table was hosted by Judy G. on the right below. Barbara recruits volunteers, supervises the kitchen including plating of the food and serving for the fundraiser teas.
Barbara is a retired elementary teacher and spends many hours volunteering for the BHM Clinic.
Dr. Cora Fletcher, president of the Berea Health Ministry, decorated this table sponsored by the ladies Philathea Class from Berea Baptist. This group of senior ladies have been long-time supporters of the Clinic.
My computer time is limited to about 5 minutes ad day due to shoulder and arm pain.
Thank you for all the kind thoughts and prayers.
GJ took me to the hairdresser for a shampoo this afternoon.
A girl always feels better with a new 'do.
Yes, I am right-handed. Recovery would have been a breeze if the surgery was my left shoulder.
Blogger provides a pre-post setting, therefore, prior to surgery, I posted all the BHM tea tables to post daily.

A Cup of Tea
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
