What a Tea Party Used to Look Like

I do despair.


  1. I'm with you. These are scary times, indeed.

    Thanks for your kind words on my blog, I'm glad my post spoke to you. It took me forever to put my feelings into the right words.

  2. oh, me too....

    why don't we do proper tea anymore? or even just use the good china?

  3. Very pretty and nice to think about.

  4. Did I miss something? That is one gorgeous teacup!
    ♥hugs♥ my friend.

  5. Angela, scary indeed. I really do despair for us. You got the words right.

    julochka, I think everyone is too busy. I don't know why I don't use my china, crystal and silver, but I haven't for many years.

    Missy, I used to collect bone china cups. Now I collect dust and dog hair.

    Ganeida, there is a very conservative political movement that has developed over a couple of years that calls itself 'The Tea Party'. It's basically the Republican and Libertarian parties on steroids. Of course the Boston Tea Party was a response to corporate greed and control, but let's never mind the facts. I do believe we are going down the so-called drain.

  6. I love tea in fine china. I miss the days when my mother served tea in her beautiful collection of cups and saucers. I also prefer the tea parties of yesteryear.

  7. Very clever--and don't get me started. It's such a bummer that we will forever associate tea parties with that much of numbskulls.

  8. gsc, I don't know why I don't use them. Yesteryear did have it's good points.

    Elizabeth. it is too bad, isn't it.

  9. Surely you don't intend to invite Sarah to your tea party? Scary times, indeed! Only the truly refined of taste and sensibility should be allowed to touch those dainty delights.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
