Tea Lady of the Future

Welcoming in the new year, I am considering the delights that await us in our fellowship teatimes on Tuesdays in 2012!  What new tea ladies will be joining us – just as I joined in the fun for the first time last spring and have found such treasure in loveliness and beauty sharing this age old ritual of civility . . .

This week, I take inventory of my teatime post ideas for the future and am looking forward to some new ways to share teacups, teapots, and tea leaves.

But, for today’s post – actually a day late – I share an image that has totally delighted me this holiday season – and tease you to return next week when my tea cabinet and creativity will be exercised anew in 2012.

Starting the new year teatime off with a playful twist,  may I present to you the future of teatime:

Tea with Mackenzie – from Nana Kathy:

‘Nough said.

See you next week with a sweet cuppa and a treat!

  7. Dear Kathryn,
    It’s always such a treat to come here and see all the beautiful pictures and read your posts! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on the “Hollywood’s Golden Age” posting. I could really identify with what you had to say. Looking forward to visiting your lovely site more often in the New Year! Love & Blessings to you and yours.

  9. Hi Kathy

    Just popping by to see how your holidays were. That sweet little pumpkin must have been the star!

    Happy New Year Sweet Friend!

  10. Oh this picture just warms my heart! Lucky little one to spend time with Miss Kathy and tea!

  11. That’s precious!! Yes, I would definitely say, “Nough said”.

    By the way, it never occurred to me that that is the way it’s spelled. Of course it is! Debbie slaps the side of her blond head with a great big duh.

  12. Oh how precious…it makes me go down memory lane when my sister-in-law would do tea with my boys…it didn’t matter that she only had nephews they would play tea party.

  13. Dearest Katherine,

    My oh my! What a precious baby angel! Thanks so much for sharing her adorable picture with us!

    Thank you so very much for so generously and kindly gracing our blogs with your various lovely Tuesday tea party links. Thanks also for visiting our blogs time and time again and leaving sweet words of comment and encouragement with your participation for our Tuesday Tea’s for our, ‘Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday’, as well as for my, ‘Tuesday Tea For Two’, weekly blog tea party.

    Pam and I are going to very much miss you as we leave blog land for quite a long while. This is due to very important personal reasons that were unforseen; (even two weeks ago).

    Dear Pam and I had a long and friendly conversation just two days ago. Upon my informing Pam that I needed to ‘bow out gracefully’, from blogland for the forseeable future, she requested that I also send this message of deepest gratitude and regret on her behalf also. As I bid you a fond farewell and as we both leave you and other very lovely fellow bloggers for the time being dear lady.

    Hugs and blessings from Wanda Lee, (and Pam; Pam is from her own, ‘Breath Of Fresh Air’, blog.)

  14. Completely beautiful…’nuff said. Hugs
