Today is about tea day and I thought I would write about this English teacup.  It is very special to me because it was my grandmothers.  I know she purchased it in Europe when she and my grandfather made a trip over there many, many years ago.

The English Tea Cup

I like to enjoy some tea while sitting at our writing desk in our living room where I have a Provence picture book and spend time just looking at the pictures (no computer in there!).  I never tire of this book, there are such lovely pictures inside and small articles.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of the cup as much as I enjoy having my tea out of it.  I love using it as it reminds me of my Grandma and I enjoy my quiet time at the writing desk that I made a while back.

I am hopeful this will make you take some time for yourself and enjoy something as simple as a cup of tea or iced tea, etc. to slow down the pace for even for just a minute; it is good for the soul.
