I walked up to the Village over the weekend
taking advantage of the still low humidity and heat.
My goal was to stop in briefly at Half Price Books
and then a treat of grapefruit sorbet.
I was looking for owl cards.
Alas, there were no owls.
There were plenty of tea things.
Lots of books and wonderful cards.
Notice the tea pot on the cover of the little book SIMPLE PLEASURES TEA.
I have one of those!
It is a Hall teapot.
The metal cover keeps the tea warm.
It was my Mother's favorite tea pot.
I'm going to have lots of good reading ahead.
I've started A TIME FOR TEA: Travels Through China and India In Search of Tea
by Jason Goodwin.
I am updating my tea notes for the Food and Feast tour I give at the museum
and this will be a big help.
Last, but not the least of the tea goodies are these cards inside the lovely tin.
I think they would be fun framed together, or separately, or to write a note.
(If I do say so myself!)
(Oh, and the grapefruit sorbet ... they were out!)
Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.
