My 1st Tea Time Tuesday!

Hi Friends!
I am joining my sweet friend
for
TEA TIME Tuesdays!

Since I LOVE anything to do with
tea, tea cups, teapots
I thought it would be fun
to showcase some of my
special goodies.
This tea set is very dear to me.  When my mom and
dad visited The Enlish Isles many years ago I she picked this set
out for me.  It is OLDE Chintz by Sadler, Fine Bone
China, Made in England.
This came all the way from England to my home.

Now the teapot is not a big one, holds maybe
3-4 cups of water...but I am a Chintz girl
and blue girl too...and this one is sooo me.
It takes residence front and center in my hutch
display in our Royal Blue Dining Room.
When something has the thought of another
behind it, this sentimental gal gets
real sappy over it.

But I am reminded in my Love of *pretty things*
not to get myself too caught up in the getting but
more in the enjoying each treasured day I am given.
The verses below keeps me ever mindful of this...
 Matthew 6:19,20

Do Not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy
and
where thieves break in and steal,
but,
 lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys
and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Reminder that these are just things and I mustn't
obsess on these treasures,
enjoy them for the season they have
been given...
and
be thankful for what GOD
has given me each day.

Thanks so much for joining with me...
be sure to Check out Sandi's blog for
others who are joining her
in Tea Time Tuesday!

Blessings,
Lorena

Hi Lorena,
Just checked my blog and saw that you had joined me for Tea Time today. I added your link and we're all set to go. Your tea set is sooo pretty and I love that it came right from the British Isles as a gift from your mother! I adore chintz, so yes, I'm swooning!!
I appreciate the scripture you have shared with us today and it is so true. We must not lay up for ourselves things that will rust or get stolen; a good reminder to keep our priorities straight. Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a beautiful day, sweet friend.

Blessings,
Sandi
