April 30

Good morning to everyone.  I am about to put things together this morning to go to Salvation Army.  I am giving a lecture on Tea and it's stories and history.  I love to do Tea Time.  When I think back on the reasons I love tea is due to an Aunt.  When I think about it...her name was Aunt Honey...sort of funny in the sense that you can use honey in your tea.  Growing up, I don't recall having had tea at home, unless we were sick.  We would get tea,honey, lemon and some Rock and Rye.  It may not have cured the cold, but it sure tasted good.  My Aunt Honey marries a man from Oklahoma, a southern state of course...and my Uncle Bob loved sweet tea.  My Aunt Honey always had a pitcher of that delightful drink in the house.  I became a huge fan of iced tea from the first drink.  As time went by, my grandmother had the most beautiful teapot that she displayed on a corner shelf just beyond where she would sit in the kitchen on her rocking chair.  Somehow, that teapot and my Grandmother became synonymous with each other.  I had always told her someday, the one thing I would love to have of hers was tat teapot with the pink roses on it.  The day my Grandma passed away, my mother handed me that teapot and said that Grandma wanted her o make sure that I got it.  That was my treasure and I would display it where I could always look at it...it made me feel like Grandma was still there with me. Well, from that teapot grew a collection.  I now have well over 160 different teapots.  I love them each for their distinct personalities.  I have floral ones, holiday ones, vintage ones, funny ones and character ones. I display them all to probably the chagrin of my husband.  And they are not JUST on display.  I use them as well.  Grandma's is still my favorite, and each time I walk into my dining room and see that teapot, it makes e smile and think of Grandma rocking in her chair.  From that point on I also started to learn about tea, tea parties and medicinal teas.  Grandma taught me so many things in life...even when she wasn't even trying.  thanks Grandma...I hope that I will be able to do justice with those I share my stories with, my cups of tea with and especially my tea pot collection....whichb y the way, is still growing.  Hope you have a "tea"riffic Day.
