Tea and Honey

July is almost over.
Can you believe it?
On August 1, I'm going to take part in August Break.
It's not a total break from the world of Blog.
It works this way:
I'll share one (or more) photos here on Twisty Lane each day,
or every other day, or whenever I feel like it
for the whole month of August.
I might even slip in a real post or two every now and then.
A little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.
It's also a chance to meet other Bloggers who are enjoying the August Break.
I also have plans for the month of August
(also known as UGHUST because of the heat and humidity).

I'm going to be hooking in August.
My fingers are itching and I have plenty of WIPs to finish. 

I'm going to read.
After I finish my guilty pleasure BONE APPETIT, I'm going to start THE BEEKEEPER'S LAMENT.
How's that for a lead-in to Tea and Honey?!!!

Tea and Honey

I've shared the teapot with you before.
It is part of a tea for one.
But I hadn't shared the cute little cup and saucer.

Tea and Honey
A perfect way to celebrate summer!

Your plan for August sounds like a good one - as long as there is tea at the start and finish of each day!

Tea and Honey -- what a lovely delight. I'll be joining you on the August break..and I know what you mean...end of July already?!?!?!

The "August Break" blog schedule sounds perfect for the hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer, as the old song goes.

Hi Snap,
what a wonderful tea time with honey and bees. Your tea cup is sweet and the books sound very interesting. Alas I have not the serenity to read a book at the moment. I think its a good thing to have a blog break and just post if one want. Enjoy the time and relax.
Best greetings,

Hi Snap, Your teapot and cup and saucer are really lovely! Enjoy your books and projects. By the way, I loved "A Year On Ladybug Farm" and got two sequels (there are actually two more Ladybug Farm books beyond the two sequels I have now). Thanks for turning me on to the author Donna Ball - she's a winner!
Hugs, Beth

I like the idea of the August Blog Break. I may be doing just that as I'll be away and then my sister will be visiting. I'll be too busy to do full blogposts. This teaset is very pretty! Enjoy your break and stay cool. Blessings, Pamela

What a great idea to post only photos in August. The teapot and matching cup & saucer are adorable. I love the little bees decorating the china.

KathyB. said...

Your August blogging sounds like my cup of tea..I am going to check this out.

The book intrigues me and I love the tea for one set. My husband is a beekeeper so it especially appeals to me.

Anne Payne said...

I'm feeling the need for a break as well, but mine is from Facebook. Sometimes life gets too hectic and I just need to slow down.

Your teapot teacup are precious! I love the summery pattern :) Very refreshing.

Enjoy your break!

Diann said...

Love your teaset! Takking some time off in August sounds like a great plan. I have really cut back on blogging. Just too much going on!

LOVE these Bees. Feel so sad that they are on the danger list. Always like to hear them buzzing about the garden and adore them on china too! x

Maria said...

I love honey and tea! One of my favorite combinations.

Your cup and teapot are just lovely! Hope you are enjoying your break.

I love tea, so whenever I can, I add honey to it. The taste is amazing but what I love more about it is its health benefits!

Tea is quite healthy as you know and when combining it to honey it's even better!

It's good to treat insomnia, which is wonderful for me. I always take one tablespoon of honey before going to sleep and it also helps treat gastrointestinal problems!

So it's truly a nature's medicine!
