Tea For Two~Cozy Morning Devotional for Tea Time Tuesday


Welcome to my tea for two. This morning our tea is being served with a tea pot and cup collection by Thomas Kinkade. I love cottages and this set has a cottage on each piece including the saucers. The tea pot says, "Home Is Where The Heart Is" and the cups and saucers have a painting of "Moonlight Cottage"

Irish Breakfast is our tea for this morning, along with a cinnamon roll ring fresh out of the oven. Please join us as we could never eat all these rolls alone.



How cozy it is to have tea and curl up to read a morning devotional. Notice the cross stitched bookmark. I collect bookmaker's and this one was cross stitched by my mother and it says, LET GO, LET GOD! She added pretty pink ribbon to each end and it is truly my favorite made by her sweet and talented hands. Added to the table, a picture of my hubby and I from our vacation last year. A yellow garden rose completes our cozy setting.


From a page in one of my favorite Thomas Kinkade art and inspirational books, is this poem by an unknown author.


Home is where the heart is,
The soul's bright guiding star.
Home is where real love is,
Where our own dear ones are.
Home means someone waiting,
To give a welcome smile.
Home means peace and joy and rest,
And everything worthwhile.

Thank you for joining me for tea.

I'll be back with my recent bathroom redo to share. But today, I am knee deep in the studio swinging paint brushes and putting some final touches on my studio for the upcoming Where Bloggers Create studio spaces third annual party. The tour takes place July 15th and for more info refer to my right sidebar at the top. Click there to visit or join the fun with the talented Karen, from My Desert Cottage.



Have a wonderful Summer day,

Dearest Celestina Marie,

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kind words!!! What a gift to find on a Monday morning...
Hope your week will be gifted as well. This tea was very special again, even though I cannot have the sweets. But looking at such thoughtful setting is already rewarding.

Lots of love,

Mariette

Good morning Celestina,
I adore Thomas Kincade's work and so your tea set caught my attention immediately. The cinnamon rolls look delish and your whole tea table says cozy to me. Lovely book marker from your mother and I enjoyed the poem. It's always a pleasure to have you join me for tea, my friend. Thank you for sharing your lovely tea with Tea Time and I wish you a delightful day.

Blessings and hugs,
Sandi
