Tea medicates most every part
Tea rejuvenates the old
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold. J. Jonker, Amsterdam, circa 1670
It's really cold out tonight. I sit home, enjoying a cup of Chamomile tea in one of my maternal Grandmother's tea cups trying to keep warm with tea and memories.
I sit in a chair of my fraternal Grandmother's. Already recovered several times, my "style" has changed yet again and I would like to recover the chair but it's not even worn! Is it frivolous to do this? I'll probably go ahead and do it anyway : ) It kind of looks like the teacup. The teacup sits on a little blue vintage table I picked up at an Estate Sale.
The inside of the cup is a lovely light creme/yellow below the gold trim. The colored flowers on it are sweet and bright. They make me smile. My hands are warmed by the cup, my heart is warmed by remembering grandmothers, and the hot liquid goes down warm.
Made in England, it's very delicate. A Rosina.
If you peek under the teacup you'll see a pretty vintage hand stitched linen dresser scarf with delicate blue flowers.
I'll make a pillow out of this, I think...with a blue and yellow backing.
I'm off to join the following parties:
