The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Taking Tea. . .

On Crooked Creek ~
Taking Tea has multiple meanings.
What you're about to read is about the mobile type. . .

After recently breaking her wrist, elbow and hip, 
a dear friend of mine has been residing
at a local Rehab and Treatment Center.

So~o~o. . .
after exchanging phone calls, we made plans for a visit.
I surprised her with Taking Tea. . .

Tea for Two was arranged 
by filling a vintage wicker basket 
with all the necessities for a mobile tea.
After lining the basket with a tea towel, 
I began with sage green mugs.
Next came creamy ivory plastic plates 
and hydrangea paper napkins.

Then I wrapped bottles of water 
and inserted beside the mugs.

I placed another tea towel over the necessities
for cushioning and to keep the plate of scones from sliding about.

Cranberry and orange miniature scones
with orange infused glaze
placed atop lacy paper doilies on a sage green dinner plate.

"Mr. Ed's" borrowed thermos 
affectionately named "The Silver Bullet"
was filled with freshly brewed Cranberry Orange Tea.

Loaded into the car, 
and a quick trip across town,
Taking Tea was just what the doctor ordered. . .
for my friend. . .and for me!

Until next time. . .
