love for


My dear friend gave me this lovely white tea-pot.
We became friends via our blogs and sharing cups of tea.
Our love for our families, design, books, travel and life connected us.
Living only a bit over a mile apart - meeting via our blogs.
Coming together and sharing loose tea and learning from the heart.
Taking time out of a busy day to share a cup of tea is a simple luxury.
A bit of bread, some fresh fruit....served in style.
It is no secret that I have a love for white china.
.. a love for sharing a pot of freshly brewed tea
opens and warms hearts.

What do you have a love for sharing?

I love sharing a pot of tea. Orange Blossom is one of my favorites. A cilivized beverage for a harried world.

I love sharing a pot of tea too! Amazing to be a mile away and connect on the blogs. That painting is so pretty and conveys so much emotion.

love that tea pot!

one of the things that i love to share and brings me so much pleasure doing so is cuttings from my garden. i so enjoy seeing a plant from my garden transferred to a neighbors or friends and seeing it thrive. that is so exciting to me.

Finding a common thread with another person is a wonderful thing. And then it doesn't matter what you share, as long as you do!

I love it! I, too, have a love for white china. "Goes with everything!" as my mom would say. :-) I love sharing good times with good friends...and over a cup of tea: even better! I also thought of you -- I put out the Valentine's card (and your glass heart) that I made with you TWO YEARS ago. Wow, does time fly.
