Welcome to Tea and friendship Tuesday's hosted by Charli and Me. This is a fun post that can be filled with pretty tablescapes, teapots, teacups, recipes, poems, personal stories, quotes, and interesting facts related to tea, friendship, or both. It is a place to share anything you would like with a friend! If you would like to join me, just pick up a button, write your post, and then leave a comment here so my dear friends and I can pop over for a visit. Otherwise, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day ♥

Recently I received two lovely awards from two of my dear friends here in blog land that I would like to share with all of you. Both awards come with a meme.......
The first award was given to me by my dear sweet friend Marcy at http://blessingseachday.blogspot.com/ Isn't it adorable ♥ Thank you so much Marcy!
Well here we go........
This question was very easy for me. I would come back as a dog, and more specifically a little schnauzer named Charli. Although she doesn't think so some times, this little diva has it made.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN A PERSON
I value people with integrity, who are genuine, caring, and compassionate.
THE COLORS YOU WEAR MOST
Blue and black, although for some reason I have been wearing more red lately.
THREE WORDS THAT DEFINE YOU
I asked my hubby this one and he said compassionate, genuine, and caring.
A PLACE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRAVEL TO
I would like to travel to many different places like Italy, France, Germany, England, and Ireland but I wouldn't want to leave home to do it.
YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE FROM A BOOK OR A MOVIE
My favorite quote is not from a book, or a movie, but it is one that I say all of the time so I will post it instead.
"Life is what happens when your busy making plans."
SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO
I would like to write a book, open a day care center for the elderly, or open some sort of a lounge where people could meet in the morning to have coffee or tea, and discuss literature, politics, and an array of other interesting subjects. That way there wouldn't be so many lonely people in the world.
YOUR MAIN STRENGTH
I'm consistent in my ethics and values. I stand up for what I believe in and will not bend to be part of a crowd.
The next award comes from my dear and kind friend Anita at http://wwwcastlescrownscottages.blogspot.com/ Thank you so much Anita! Isn't this a lovely award ♥
In this meme we are supposed to name seven things that people may not know about us.
So here goes......
SEVEN THINGS ABOUT ME THAT YOU MAY KNOW
1. God is the center of my world.
2. My experiences as a nurse have taught me humility.
3. I treasure my friends and family with all of my heart.
4. I honestly don't know what color my hair is anymore. I just know it
couldn't possibly be gray.
5. I don't have a favorite holiday. I love and celebrate them all.
6. No matter how old I get I will probably never grow up.
7. I sing all of the time even though I can't. It drives my family crazy!
There you have it. Now it's your turn. Please except these precious awards from me. After you finish doing your memes remember to leave a comment here. I would love to get to know you better ♥
Sometimes in the fall my hubby and I like to set up a table by the fireplace, or in the living room surrounded by some of our books, to have lunch or dinner.
Here is an example of one of my tablescapes. Aren't those little roosters adorable? Anne gave them to me ♥ I just love them! There is one of the houses Ryan and I made together. I think it makes a rather whimsical and fun centerpiece. In the next picture I changed the center piece to one of my many turkey's. This one holds a tea light candle and looks very pretty all lit up in the evening. Now all I have to do is get a couple of glasses and we are all set. Maybe you would like to join us too.
