Love From Yesterday

Hi Friends!

Thank you for the birthday greetings and sweet messages last week.
Your wishes were so kind and a blessing!

I hope you enjoyed a nice weekend.
We had rain, but thankful for the moisture with the new spring blooms on the way.

As part of my 10th year blog celebration,
I will be sharing posts from years past.
As I was looking through the archives for one this week,
I came across this post sharing a special teacup
I cherish and love.
With it's green beauty it seemed appropriate with
St. Patrick's Day coming soon
10th  Tea cup/Mug exchange.

So as we take a look back in blogland
I thank you for letting me share this poem 
I wrote in 2011.


There's a cozy little corner, within my cottage dear,
it was crying for a visit and so I sat right there.

With my chair that graced a redo and table close at hand,
I’ll sit my sweet green tea cup with thoughts of days to plan.

My mind so filled with ideas,
While sipping raspberry tea.

I’ll plan and wish and dream away
Of things not yet to be.

Sweet teacup was so lonely, until I filled her up,
My chance to recall memories of days and loved ones much.

Remembering this teacup a gift to Mother dear,
From a sweet little Godchild, for a birthday one fine year.

Wrapped in pink with ribbons and smiles of giving delight,
Mother opened the precious present for delicate was inside.

With glee and squeals of affection and hugs to go around,
Godchild was so happy for Mother was so proud.

Through the years sweet green tea cup, gave joys and love untold,
Mother cherished it completely, for God had blessed her so.

With love and admiration for simple things in life,
I learned a faithful lesson, to give is always right.

Today this sweet green tea cup, lives with me so near,
Within my cozy corner forever to be dear.

Joined in many moments upon my comfy spot,
I cherish quiet blessings and tea within sweet cup.

For life has given joys never to compare,
And when I want to visit, I’ll sit upon my chair.

Sweet teacup will be waiting to meet me for the day,
And together we’ll remember,
Love from Yesterday!

Celeste, such a gorgeous teacup, I actually gasped it took my breath away no lie.


craftyles said...

What a beautiful poem-you really created a serene pretty picture in my mind. The teacup is as almost as beautiful as your poetry. Happy 10 years, dear Celeste! Wishing you at least 10 more!

Debbie Harris said...

Celestina~ Good Morning to you and many blessings for your day.
How tender and beautifully written is your poem and my, that is a gorgeous tea cup!

Today we are getting hit with a snow storm and it is just beautiful. It is one of those quick accumulating snow falls.
I shall enjoy my walk with Donatella this afternoon as she plays in the snow.

Enjoy your day in all its glory~~

Celeste, Your poem is a wonderful tribute to the memories that the tea cup holds. It's is a pretty cup and I love your quiet reflection corner. A perfect place for sipping tea and reading. Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Linda

Sandi Magle said...

It can be strange/wonderful how inanimate objects can relate so much--to the owner. I have useless items in my home---that conjure memories--that are priceless. Totally appreciated this post, best to you, Sandi

Rose L said...

Lovely poem. I have a friend who makes tea a daily event, and has a tea party once a month!

Alessandra said...

Happy 10th anniversary! This corner is very romantic, i love it very much. The tea cup is very elegant

Your gifts and talents have no end... I love the sweet teacup poem! It is so beautiful..

May the Lord's sweetest blessings be with you :)

Decor To Adore said...

I am so glad you are sharing past posts because its a second opportunity for a wonderful read. May I also wish you a belated Happy Birthday and happy blogging milestone.

Also, thank you so very much for your warm and heartfelt comments.

I wanted to let you know that I am nearing the end of my college experience and am currently doing a 7-week internship at a museum as a requirement for graduation. It is an interesting experience to be sure.

I must admit that I am struggling to try and manage my time and make sure my family's needs are met. Sadly, this leaves little time left for visiting my favorite people in the world and their fabulous blogs. I hope you'll have patience with me. Thankfully, this time won't last forever and I will soon, once again, be able to see all the wonderful things you are doing.

May glorious weather and lovely flowers put a spring in your step,

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...
