Tea Thoughts

 I'm feeling a little less than "perky" this morning 
so I decided to stay in out of the cold and 
catch up on correspondence using a few of my many tea themed note cards.  
Yes, I am a fanatic collector of all things tea!  
My good friends know that, so several have gifted me with tea stationary and  note cards,
in addition to my many purchases.    

In this world of cell phones, emailing and text messaging, 
I often wonder how I managed without a computer and smart phone. 
I admit I love the convenience of emails and texts because 
text messaging is a great way to stay in touch with the teens
and young adults in the family wherever they are in the world. 
This morning, as I was drinking my first cup of tea, 
the Lord brought the names of three dear elderly ladies who are shut-ins
and have no access to modern technology.    
Thus, the reason for the cards and stationary on my desk.

The pretty tea cups and tea scenes arriving in the mail, 
will bring a ray of sunshine and warm thoughts of friendship. 

"Where there's tea, there's hope."

Very lovely post, Linda! Sorry you're feeling under the weather today. Hope you feel better soon. I noticed a box of tea-themed cards by Sandy Clough in your blog photo. I just placed an order with Christian Book Distributors Monday night for five boxes of tea-themed cards. Three are by Sandy Clough, and I think I ordered the box you have. Take care, my friend!
Hugs, Phyllis

Yes, even with all our technical gadgets I still enjoy handwritten notes!

I too like the personal cards and hand written notes. Tea Themed ones are very nice. So kind of you to take the time and to let someone know you are thinking of them. I hope you are feeling better today.

Though I do also love technology, receiving and sending tea notes and cards is oh so special. The recipients of your notes will be thrilled. It will make their day. Hope you are feeling better today.

I have a weakness for tea-themed stationery and notecards too! Yesterday, I was at Tuesday Morning and bought the cutest notecards by Punch Studio. They are embossed and have a blue and cream teapot and teacup. Very pretty!
