Tea with a Friend

The photo inspiration is just lovely, isn't it?

Time for another challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room!  And it's tea time!  The cooler weather is fast approaching us.  We've already had a few cool mornings.  It's a welcome relief!  Drinking tea is great for those cool mornings.  I have many fond memories of drinking tea with my sis and just chatting about anything and everything.  So, remember take time not only for a friend, but have some tea too!:-))  Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Have a great weekend!  Take care, hugs!

  10. This is beautiful Maria! Love those coffe cup stamps, and the gorgeous ribbon and bow. I used to be an avid tea drinker, but now my favourite drink is coffee, you can't beat a decent cappuccino! Or a nice peppermint tea if I'm not feeling too well, so refreshing and caffeine free!
