Calling all Teatimers-It's time for tea

Today were having Licorice herbal tea with Ruth .

Stash is a new company to me.My first time trying it.The quality was fantastic,if you like licorice and sweet herbal teas, then this is for you.

Ruth Bell Graham is one of my all time favorite poets above most others.Not only that, but I also think she was an amazing woman.

Nothing special today,very simple.

Plastic bowl  from dollar tree.Sweet don't you think?

It's always time for tea someplace! Your meds look great in the wire teapot. Now, why didn't I think of that?!? *LOL*

Oh, Denise, your wire teapot is so cute! Ruth Graham was a lovely lady with a lot of wisdom to pass on. Thanks for sharing.

Real life at 58. Hehehe, that is cleverly portrayed. I am 52 (53 later this year)and I do not have as large a stash of pills as you. Though there is ONE (Tamoxifen) that I take daily, and will do for the next two years.
As for the licorice tea...Umm, I think I might have to pass on that and perhaps settle for a Russian Caravan instead. Or an Earl Grey.
Happy tea time to you!

That tea sounds kinda yummy! I could use a good hot cup of tea right now!! Your daughters are so beautiful and they all look so very happy! Must have something to do with their Mommy!! Denise have you ever tried this, the other day on the Nate Berkus show they showed what a real serving size of cereal is. They used a beautiful tea cup for it!! Most people pour to much into a cereal bowl! I thought what a cool ideal it was!! So now I am looking around for just the right one to use!! Just thought I'd pass it along to you!! Take care, XO Love Fran.

I really like Stash...they have some very good brands. Licorice spice is a good change.

And Ruth Bell Graham is an all time favorite. Her The Prodigal was a great comfort during difficult days with our son years ago...she was recounting her relationship & coping with rebellious Franklin. A really uplifting book.
Thanks for sharing! I'm on the other side of 60, so....LOL!

What a delightful blog Denise,

Ruth Graham is one of my favorites, I have a Bible that has quotes from her throughout. Happy Tea.

I love the bowl Denise! Isn't it amazing what you can find at a dollar store?
I am going to be 60 in a couple of weeks and life does look different from this side of 50. I think I like it so far but we shall see what I do with the knowledge I have gained over the last 60 years...:)
Have a bright, happy day!

P.S. I love Chamomile tea

OH! I LOVE STASH TEA! You must try the CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT one!! Thank you Denise for coming over today!! BLessings my friend, Anita

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Denise, yes, go look for the chocolate hazelnut and then put a splash of milk...or better yet, froth some milk and sit back and enjoy. On the contrary, I have NO French blood in me. I am Mexican-American, born and raised in L.A.!! tteeeeeheheeee, but having grown up speaking Spanish, I took to French like if it was my native tongue. ENJOY YOUR TEA! Oh, and the Stash double bergamot is THEE BEST!!! Anita

Hi Denise, Love the name Coffeeberry Cottage! How cute! Love the teapots and tea cups on your sidebar too. The licorice tea sounds really good.
Blessings, Beth

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
