Have you read the book If Teacups Could Talk by Emily Barnes? It's one of my favorites and started me on the pathway of delighting in all things 'tea'. A teacup can be a favorite for many reasons, and the favorite teacup can change from day to day. Sometimes I really do wish they could talk! Yesterday I enjoyed the favorite teacup shown in the center of this montage, not because it's especially beautiful, but because it was mine for a special afternoon tea with girlfriends. If it could talk, it would tell you that we had a great time. The experience reminded me of a cute little quip by cartoonist Aaron Bacall where he says "Do you want sugar, milk, or juicy gossip, with your tea?" Hmmm, juicy gossip, please (the good kind, of course) and lots of tasty tea and delicious food as well. There's something so relaxing and calming about an afternoon tea with girlfriends on a Sunday afternoon.
Thank you, Janet, Diane, Linda, and Tari for a purely delightful afternoon!
