I could see anyone enjoying a good cup of tea
with this Ansley Tea Set.
Beautiful gold trim around the cup,
handle, and even on the tea pot.
The decorations are so...delightful.
Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly,
without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn
Here are some very beautiful Infuser Tea Mugs.
I love the handles on these and
the mugs are decorated so
The delicate flowers have flare!
Speaking of flares...I once took a friend with
me to Tennessee to visit my mother and other
family members. My mother was telling us a
wonderful story of going into another town
and she saw the most beautiful "FLARES"
she had every seen. My friend looked at me
and said, "Flares, what are flares?"
I started laughing and told her, "FLOWERS!"
She and I still laugh about that to this day.
I also had to translate other words for her. Tee-hee.
Well, I saw the most beautiful sunset last night.
My wonderful husband and I sat for a moment
to watch it unfold. I'd like to share it with you.
I hope I didn't share too many with you! It was just so glorious!!
And the sun rises and sets on the good and the bad.
God is Gracious!!
As I was standing there taking all these beautiful pictures,
thanking God for His beauties and His mercies,
there were many people that drove by wondering what
I was looking at. A couple of people took a glance,
but quickly looked away.
Finally, one person pulled over and
took the time to enjoy the view for only a moment
and then sped off like he was on fire.
Oh people, you need to take time to drink it all in;
quite your souls and feel the beauty.
I hope you have a lovely tea day!
for today. I would like to join them in celebrating a
wonderful drink. The best part about the drink
are the wonderful cups,saucers, and tea pots.

beautiful collections. And DO check out
It is very strange, this domination of our intellect by our
digestive organs. We cannot work, we cannot think,
unless our stomach wills so. It dictates to us our
emotions, our passions. After eggs and bacon it says,
"Work!" After beefsteak and porter, it says, "Sleep!"
After a cup of tea (two spoonfuls for each cup, and
don't let it stand for more than three minutes), it says
to the brain, "Now rise, and show your strength.
Be eloquent, and deep, and tender; see, with a
clear eye, into Nature, and into life: spread your
white wings of quivering thought, and soar,
a god-like spirit, over the whirling world beneath
you, up through long lanes of flaming stars
to the gates of eternity!"
