Tea Time Friends

Tea Time Friends is a darling little book that is illustrated by Debbie Mumm. Most know Debbie for her artistic quilt and  fabric design, and home decor. I'm quite partial to her work because she's known in our part of the state as a local gal. Her art is whimsical, inviting, and cheerful. This little book is chalk-full of paintings of teapots, teacups, teddy bears, and honeybees. Quotes from famous people speak of teatime, friendship, and   life lessons. This is the kind of book that fits nicely into a table-top vignette or in a basket beside a cozy chair so it can be picked up and read in bits and pieces over time. This book was published in 1998 by The Brownlow Corporation. Text by Caroline Brownlow. If you like miniature books, this would be a great addition to your small book library.

  1. How fun to have Debbie as a local gal. I've had her calendars for a few years here and there. Yes, hers AND Sandy's. I'm working on having Diane Knott's for 2013. Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. I just saw Salina's post about the button quail eggs. Amazing! I can't believe she ordered the eggs online and that they actually hatched such tiny little chicks. So cute!

    That looks like a great little book. Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  3. Sounds like a sweet book. Love the nest with eggs.

  4. Looks like a great book! I love new tea books!

  5. I LOVE Debbie Mumm's work, La Tea Dah. It's so absolutely charming. Susan
