Welcome to Tea and friendship Tuesday's hosted by Charli and Me. A place where tea and friendship is celebrated. This is a fun post filled with recipes, photo's, tablescapes, stories, quotes, poems, and interesting facts related to tea, friendship, or both. A place to share anything you would like with a friend! I hope you will join me. If you would like to participate just leave me a comment so that my dear friends and I can stop over for a visit. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy my post.......
Did you know that.........
"The tea bag was an accidental invention. Early in this century, American merchant Thomas Sullivan distributed samples of his tea in little silk packets. Customers liked the novelty and dipped the bags in hot water, rather than pouring out the contents into their tea strainers. The rest is history."
-Time for Tea!-
Isn't it amazing to think of all of the friendships that were established, cultivated, and renewed over a cup of tea?.........
An Easter poem especially for you.....
"Easter morn with lilies fair
Fills the church with perfumes rare,
As their clouds of incense rise,
Sweetest offerings to the skies.
Stately lilies pure and white
Flooding darkness with their light,
Bloom and sorrow drifts away,
On this holy hallow'd day.
Easter Lilies bending low
in the golden afterglow,
Bear a message from the sod
To the heavenly towers of God."
-Louise Lewin Matthews-
I hope all of you have a beautiful and blessed day!.......
