A Few of My Favorite Sayings.....Or Food for Thought

Faith is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see. Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.” ~H. Jackson Brown You are my whole existence and I will Love you until my last Breath. Albert to Victoria "Life is too short, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and Never regret anything that made you Smile. What if the rest of your life was the best of your life? If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. A Man should hear a little music, read a little poetry and see A fine picture every day of his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful Which God has implanted in the Human Soul Johann Wolfgang Von Goeth

Tea Time Tuesday.....

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday!!! I hope everyone enjoys themselves, we have quite a few Teas' to attend so lets go. Some of my favorite memories of Tea are in I am on my birthday in Windsor UK, so excited to go to Tea. Tea varies from village to village (photo, below thanks to Mary at Across the Pond) is a typical "Cream Tea" which is served with Fruit Sconces (Raisin) or Plain scones and all the trimmings but very informal. Each pub in every village has Tea, each has its on unique set of Tea China , below, is a photo I took after I had tea at a tiny pub on a cliff overlooking the Sea, in Mevagissey, Cornwall. Tea was as lovely ( in a small pub) as it is, in the city of Truro in Cornwall.

Below, Tea at the famous Orangery, on the grounds at
Kensington Palace, the last home that Princess Di lived in before
her untimely death. It is open to the public, be prepared to
wait in line, but is it well worth the wait. It is the most beautiufully
appointed Tea I've ever been to in the world I hope everyone enjoyed Tea Time Tuesday and please come
each week......after all we should all treat ourselves to Tea
at least once a week....until then
Ta, Ta
