Look at these beautiful little books I found at my local Dollar Tree!
I only picked up a couple, but they have a whole series of them.

The books are very well decorated and very colorful.

I picked, "A Cup of Friendship" and "The Perfect Cup of Tea."
See what I mean about being very colorful?

I agree! What would the world do without tea?

How would we be able to enjoy our bagels and scones without tea?

And what about friendships?
MANY friendships have developed over a simple cup of tea!

I mean, look at us! We have developed good friendships from just posting about tea.

Where would we be without the knowledge that goes along with it?
So what "tea" shall we have today?

The Chinese are so very wise to have discovered so many wonderful things about tea.
Notice the last sentence on the left page. Never stir counterclockwise
unless you want trouble...

Well there you have it!
 The tea books are just delightful!!

To join in with the tea party, visit Terri at Artful Affirmations
and Martha at Martha's Favorites. They have the most
magnificent collections!!

Here's to your health!


  1. What a great find at the Dollar tree! Both books look fabulous. I am sure you are enjoying them. The tea mug is lovely too, and your breakfast looks yummy : )

  2. They are darling! I picked up a couple, too. And I forgot I had one or two packed away in a drawer. It seems my whole life is packed away somewhere. I think they deserve a good home.

    Enjoy your tea,
    Marianne xo

  3. They are sweet little books aren't they? I picked up the one with the poppies on it too! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. What a fun find at the Dollar Tree. I love books and tea. Fun find! Happy Tea Day!

  5. Great minds think alike!! :) I found the same books and adore them! I actually have posted on both of the books you show in your post and I have most of the others. My tea post today was on the book 'The Cup That Cheers'. Hope you can stop by and check it out! They are fun to read.

  6. What a great collection of books! I have to go to the neighboring town tomorrow and they have a Dollar store...guess where I'm going??!! Thanks for the heads up!

  7. Brenda,
    First of all, I want to thank you for the lovely comment you left on our post today. It meant so much to me, as my mom passed away about three years ago, and I miss her dearly. She would be so happy that I posted the doll's dress that she made me so many years ago. I love your tea post today and the saying "what would the world do without tea?" These books are so colorful that you can put them out just for the covers. You know, I just took a picture of those red flowers recently. I'm glad that I found someone that loves tea as much as I do.

  9. You lucky girl... and thanks for sharing the teatime books...Looks like you had a yummy relaxing time reading ..Hugs

  10. Bagels and tea?! Yum! Good info...High Tea is dinner style tea, with heavy foods and served after 5 pm. SO MANY people wrongly call Afternoon Tea "high tea'!
