Tea Time Tuesday

A LOVE for all things TEA..
related that is.

Welcome to my Tea Post for this week!
So glad you have stopped by for a visit!
I wanted to share today not your ordinary
Tea Cup or Teapots this time.

Over the years, I have collected,created and been
gifted many Unique Tea related items.

Would you like to see some?

On the left you will a tea cup filled with my hand made roses
and sweet lil birdy sitting atop...a created goodie I made from a
cup that had been my hubby's mom.  Sentimental me just had
to find a way to keep this cherished cup in a new way.
Then...
my lovely teapot, that I LURRRV the roses on its front,
is
a melting pot with a cut out in back for my votive candle.

see the front?

See the back?

Oh and the sweet lil birdie amongst my roses...too tweet!

Then I have 3 tea pots to show you
...each very unique in their own way...
The glass one w/the pretty blue flower is a Paper Weight,
the tiny gold tea pot is a Placecard holder
and
the silver one is a real loose Tea Strainer!
Cool, huh?

Last, I wanted to share two sweet ornies that
were gifted me.  The sweet teapot is from MudPie and
the tea cup is connected and so you can hang it.

I love unusual things that flow out of a Love or collection.
I have been so blessed by friends and loved ones who know what I love and
are so thoughtful when they give them to me.



But I want you to know this about me is;
these are just Things...pretty things,
things to treasure and hold for now.

More important to me than all the *things*
I could aquire in my life tho,
is the knowledge of knowing the love of
my Father God.
I have been truly Blessed.

I have felt a love so deep and pure that the
 trials I have been through these
past 3 years would have counted
for nothing, if HE wasn't by my side.
I have known a quietness which I did not understand
and
learned to wait upon my Lord when
I did not know what more would go wrong.
I have seen His answers to prayers.
And wondered...
but known all along
He loves me and has been by my side. 

May you have a blessed day!
Lorena

An Amen from me too! All of your tea things are lovely and hold special thoughts and memories but you're right; it's only His love and having faith in Him that really matters in this life. Tea things can't get us through a trial. Although a cup of tea can make you feel better, it's only for a short time. The real peace comes from God! Thank you my dear friend for your lovely post. We all can benefit from your wise words. Have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi
