Thanksgiving Tea Time


Hello All! 

Thank you for stopping by!
Being back in Bloglandia has been a joy.
Hearing from many of you...
Priceless!
This time of year,
when the leaves burst into colorful expression
and the air has a certain chill,
I find myself more reflective than
the busy hot summer months. 

Tea is a perfect companion for reflection...
as you all know....
*smile*


Today I enjoyed a mix of some of my favorite herbs...
Chamomile
Nettle
Spearmint 
Peppermint

in  a  sweet tea cup given to me by my friend Dianne Buckley. 
Thank you again Dianne!
It is a lovely little tea cup,
very sturdy and very comfortable 
in the hand for such a pretty cup. 
She is "Ming Rose"
by Foley,
a fine company.

I sipped my tea while working on the card above,
it is almost done.


Creating holiday cards for family and friends
is a loving task,
I was able to focus and finish my cards. Yay!

I felt so thankful for each loved one!
How lucky are we to have those in our lives
who know us and love us!

How precious love is!


I started writing a list of all I was thankful for...
You all here are on it!
There is so much to be 
Thankful for!

Every single day!
I am thankful for Martha,
Dear Martha is going through a very 
challenging time.
*Send her as much love as you can*


Wishing you all...
where ever you are
and in whatever circumstances...
JOY

Hugs to you All
Terri

So happy to share a cuppa with you although mine is coffee to begin the day(the herbal teas are for later)! That is a beautiful cup. You must be thrilled to have your cards done already! I just can't seem to get into it until after Thanksgiving. Looking forward to seeing your tree. Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving!

Hello my dear friend, what a beautiful post in every way!!
Your lovely sweet tea cup, is a gorgeous gift from your friend, Terri, and yes I love sipping tea, too - just now a Chai tea with milk, is in my cup.
And your adorable card, so very beautiful, with the angel in the laces, and the lovely white cut foliage around her. Also love your photo with the bows, filled with glitter, just can`t figure out what it is,lol.
Terri thank you for your loving wishes, and your post filled with your beautiful heart, you are a gift in my life, dear friend.

Life is very precious and often we come to that realization way too late in life.
I have a friend who has a tea party once a month just to gather good friends and enjoy sharing and caring.

This post Terri was a total JOY to read - every word! We have so much to be thankful for especially having friends like you in our lives!
That is such a sweet gift of a cup and saucer from you friend - a treasured keepsake which brings memories of her when you sip your tea - so special!
Your angel card is adorable! It must make you feel so uplifted having created all of these in the past short while. I am so delighted for you! You are well ahead of me.
Sending you thoughts of love and strength along your journey sweet friend.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Terri, your teacup is adorable and I am envious that you have finished making your Christmas cards already. I've completed some for an exchange but still have to get a move on for family and friends. Mine are not as feminine and lacy as yours but this is something I'd love to try for a change. I'm sure your Jane Austen tree is stunning.
