My Cup of Tea

"I smile of course, and go on drinking tea, yet with these April sunsets, that somehow recall my buried life and Paris in the Spring, I feel immeasurably at peace, and find the world to be wonderful and youthful, after all."

~ T.S. Elliot, Portrait of a Lady ~

I've been reading the classic "The Secret Garden,"
every night after putting the kids to bed... and for the 
ultimate experience, I have to have my cup of tea:
Honey Vanilla Chamomile... so good!

Here are the free graphics sources I used
to compose "My Cup of Tea" gift tags:

*The Graphics Fairy*

 *Altered Bits*

Thank you!!

written by my dear friend ~ Janet Martin.
She wrote it in honor of all the women in her life...
so brew your own cup of tea, and visit her 
at Another Porch.  You'll be so glad you did!

Wishing a Happy Mother's Day
to all you beautiful women out there!!!

P.S.... I'm sharing these tags at
Angie's Knick of Time Tuesday
Vintage Style Link Party ~ stop by for
plenty of vintage inspiration!

  3. I clicked on that poem...what a beautiful poem!

  4. My tear, I have tears of love for dear person who has blessed my life so richly! Your words of empathy, encouragement and love warm my soul as you share in return your soul in poetry, quotes and ART pouring from your smile across cyber-space to all who pause here! An artist in so many ways, you brush with beauty life's mundane days.

    God bless you each and every woman who pauses here for tea, or happens across my porch!
    Hugs and blessings!
