It’s a tea party for me – Sunday morning tea for one!!!!
I collect tea related items and pottery. Delicate Belleek and vintage English bone china cups and saucers, usually never leave the display cabinet!! With a rambunctious canine crew of 4, fancy tea cups would have a very short life span once they move into this house!!!
So, most of my tea at home is served in sturdy, handmade pottery.
I just wanted to tell you all about a new tea source I discovered in blogland –
Peggy Krantz, the proprietress, is so sweet – and your order is mailed out right away from her farm in Dexter, New Mexico.
I ordered the tea ball/infuser pictured – you can pick your colors and charms. I requested a bag of alfafa tea, which is absolutely delicious all by itself! Peggy threw in a sample of her lavender hand cream, which is wonderful!! How did she know I am a lavender freak?? LOL
The tea ball pictured matches my daughter’s locally made Bay Pottery mug perfectly. I went searching for my linen napkins to complete this little Sunday vignette – and remembered they are all for sale in the shop!!! I did manage to save two of the vintage bed trays for myself – the rest are in the shop!!! There comes a point in time, that things have to be passed on to others to appreciate!!!! One can only have so many things, before one is teetering on the edge of ‘hoarder-dom”!!
The little bent honey spoon partially seen in the pottery honey pot, can be ordered from Mrs. Hardesty’s Tea Room, in Harrisonburg, Va.
Tea ball from “Chapped Chick”-so cute!!
Well, my alfalfa tea is getting cold…………………………the wood stove is whistlin’ and cracklin’!
Time to sit back and enjoy my tea while I can, before the husband calls on me to help with his basement project!!!!
All is well, and peaceful this Sunday at Mountain Meadows………………………….
…tea for two
And two for tea,
…me for you
And you for me…..
