All things PINK and cheerful are the order of the day each week when Beverly hosts Pink Saturday at her place on How Sweet the Sound! Terrific! But, when one’s home is mostly decked out in greens and golds and burgundy’s – well – sometimes finding my pinks to share can be a challenge.
Not to fear this week, though – I had another lovely visit with my friend, Karan, over at her delightful tea shop called, ACROSS THE POND, where she stocks all things teatime and British!
Karan and I are planning a teatime event at her shop in April focusing on the medicinal qualities of tea and the benefits of essential oils to enhance tea flavors, health, and wellness.
My husband and I have been growing in the use of essential oils over the past year and a half, and have come to enjoy the benefits of wellness, increased vitality, and pain management without chemicals and prescription drugs. I’m starting to learn of their value in the kitchen, too – and have been enjoying a couple of oil blends in my green tea! Yum!
Ed and I are now openly sharing what we’ve learned. Visit our new website HERE to learn more – and even shop and order these quality essential oils for yourself! We’re so glad we took the time to seriously look into this holistic alternative in health and wellness.
Now – about those tea shop pinks I promised you – well, last week Karan had all her green going on in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. This week, however, the bunnies came out to play with plenty of pinks to be seen in corner and crevice.
Now – pay attention! There will be a QUIZ after the photo show!
How do you like this darling children’s Easter tea set, displayed with plenty of whimsey on a kid sized cafe table and chair set . . .
And, speaking of tea – I truly wanted to leave the shop with this amazing Fitz & Floyd teapot, creamer, and sugar set! The details are exquisite!
But, then again – this little “love” teapot was beckoning, along with stationary to write up teatime invitations.
Trees, it would seem, are not just for Christmas. Easter trees in both purple . . .
And pink . . .
Capture one’s imagination with so many delights – and lights – adorning the branches!
Then, there are the cupcake trees bedecked with faux cupcakes, of course!
Floral arrangements in all their pink splendor are complimented by a darling miniature parasol . . .
While a fanciful pink kitty cat . . .
Waits patiently near a cheerful birdhouse with pinks a’plenty, in the hopes of a feathered friend flying by!
And, lest we forget . . . well . . . the TEA!!
QUIZ TIME QUESTION:
HA! Leave a comment with your guess, and when you do you’ll be added to the hat for my GIVE-AWAY this month – my BLOGOVERSARY MONTH!
Yep! Two years in Blogland and loving every minute of it – only wishing I had more leisure time to enjoy the writing, reading, and application of all the inspiration for good things, beauty, and creativity I’ve found here! Not to mention, the pleasure of my readers‘ virtual time.
In light of St. Patrick’s big day this month, I’ve set aside a copy of one of my favorite books on the subject of Patrick, Ireland, and Christian history: How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill.
Of course, the package will come to the winner with a few little extra goodies tossed in for fun and surprises!
TO ENTER: just leave a comment on this post – or any of my posts this month (sorry, there are so few). On March 31st, I’ll gather all the comments up and pull a name out of a hat with the winner announced soon after.
Many thanks to you all for making my time in Blogland so joyful. You have all been such a blessing to me and are a constant source of encouragement to continue to grow and use the gifts God has given me!
