Did you have a beautiful weekend? I know I did. The weather was gorgeous, blue skies and a perfect sun, making everything look golden and happy. I’m only writing this now, because I had a lovely 4 day weekend. I spent some of it with a very good friend of mine. We were out and about shopping at one of our favourite stores, Home Goods. Home Goods is a store, where you go in and you’re never seen again. We actually closed the store (we left at 9:30 p.m.) but what fun we had! Sunday was brunch with a dear friend whom I had not seen in a while.
I posted the photo above of my latest cup and saucer acquisition on my Facebook page and the responses and likes were amazing. What is it about a cup of tea in an elegant china cup? One of my FB friends said that the set reminded her of beautiful sari fabric, which I must say, it does! I’ve been collecting cups and saucers for a number of years now; due to my English upbringing, this was the way we always had tea, I’ve still followed that tradition even after my many years living in the States.
I think tea makes us think of comfort, home, relaxation and just puts us in a positive and tranquil state of mind. Tea lifts your equilibrium.

It’s nice to have a little piece of home on a daily basis. If you’re interested in the Brits love of tea and how it came to be, click here
I’ll be reviewing the book The Rice Mother in another posting.
