Tea Time Tuesday - Time for St. Paddy's Day Tea

Today's Tea Time Tuesday finds me sharing a wee bit of Irish charm with you.  I have various shamrock tea cups and saucers, and picked this adorable one to share with you today.  The tea is from a tea shop in Ohio called Essencha Tea House.  My brother and sister in-law love this tea shop and I was fortunate to go there once while visiting. This was a thoughtful gift from them for my birthday (not much remains as it is yummy).

I thought I would share a fun gift my husband made me this weekend from an old tea box.  I blogged about it yesterday, but since it is sort of "tea related" I thought you may like to see it if you haven't already.  I am just starting out collecting fountain pens, so he created a nice home for my pens from this lovely box. Isn't it charming?

I am sharing tea today at:

Hello Winnie,
I like your teacup with its spoon companion. The tea box makes a wonderful home for your fountain pen collection. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Wishing you a delightful day and Happy Spring!

Hi Winnie,
Your teacup is so lovely today! What a great idea for the tea box. So creative. Thanks for visiting me! Happy Spring this week! Karen


Hello Winnie!
Your hubby made you an awesome box for your pen collection, wow, he is one sweet man! Your teacup is so pretty too. Thank you for dropping by, I so appreciate it! Happy St. Pat's to you too!

Your teacup is sweet with the matching spoon! What a lovely idea for your fountain pen collection. I've not heard of someone who collects them but I imagine you would find some really interesting ones. I remember using a fountain pen in school until the ball point pens came out. They were messy but there's something nice about the nib scratching letters across paper. Thanks for visiting. Pamela
