TEA: An Ideal Prescription

"It was George Eliot who earnestly inquired, 'Reader, have you ever drunk a cup of tea?' There is something undeniably heartwarming and conversation-making in a cup of steaming hot tea. . . It is an ideal prescription for banishing loneliness. Perhaps it is not so much the tea itself, as the circle of happy friends eager for a pleasant chat."

Book of Etiquette 1921


  1. I like that heart quilt! Take care, La Tea Dah. Susan

  2. With or without the gathered friends, afternoon tea is a mighty fine idea and I'm certainly glad that somebody thought of it.

  3. Your pretty picture reminds me I must polish my thrifted silver tea service.

    Although perhaps I should try the Shabby Chic look like my daughter, who likes hers better when they are in need of shining?

  4. I like silver both ways, Brenda, but tend to favor the shabby chic look myself these days. One of my friends loves hers totally black! But I prefer a bit of gleaming silver shining through.

  5. O my! I am in love with the heart quilt. How adorable!!!
