Brillante Blogger Award

Many thanks to my friend Kathleen of Kathleen Ellis Life Style Designs for awarding me the Brillante Blogger Award. I am passing on the award to the following five bloggers. Please visit them as they do a beautiful job. They are:
  • My 2Roses for a fresh approach to permanent flowers
  • Rosemary's Sampler for an informative and interaction sampling pertaining to herbs and teas
  • Hydrangea House for decorating ideas and projects in the Romantic Cottage or Shabby style
  • Tea Party Girl for a wonderful resource on ideas for hosting and enjoying afternoon tea parties
  • Set To A Tea for tips and ideas on how to set a lovely tea table.
I am also required to tell you 5 things about myself. So here goes...
1. I would love to live in Charleston in the winter-not the summer. I don't have the hair for it.
2. I seldom enjoy a day without tea and chocolate.
3. I plan to travel with my husband to London this year.
4. I love cool summer mornings.
5. I have two red headed children.

Thank you so much for reading.

My Favorite Teacup

Gladstone (1865) Victorian British Prime Minister

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.

Sipping Chocolate Mint...
