Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving
for my friends...the old and the new


~Ralph Waldo Emerson

My darlings, to simply say thank you for reading my posts and leaving behind such kind comments seems so small so I wrapped the words in hugs, tied them with love and sealed them with kisses.

Have a lovely weekend.

MY DARLING DUCHESS,
YOU ARE SUCH AN ANGEL TO BEHOLD. BEAUTIFUL AS ALWAYS.
I LOVE THE STORY IN YOUR PREVIOUS POST AND I WILL GO VISIT NELLIE.
I THINK THAT THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE KINDER TO STRANGERS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE LIKED AND ACCEPTED AND THE FAMILY...WELL THE FAMILY IS "JUST" FAMILY AND THEY "HAVE" TO ACCEPT THEM. SAD ISN'T IT.
IT IS ALWAYS AN INSPIRATION TO COME SEE YOU.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEK END.
HUGS AND LOVE
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Good Morning Duchess Sweetie...
Knock! Knock! It is me. I am here for tea. Can I come in?

Oh how beautiful, roses for the occasion and sweets to go along with the tea. Oh my, I always feel like a princess when I drop by. You do have the BEST teas ever. I thank you for having me over today. What a wonderful afternoon. Enjoying the sunshine, the tea and wonderful stories about the cottage. I love stopping by.

You my dear have lifted my heart and spirit more times than you could ever imagine. I thank you for your friendship and love. Yes, someday I would love to have you over for tea. You would love the desert, it is sunny and warm, and it really does hold a beauty all of its own.

Have a gorgeous Sunday sweetie. Thank you again for graciously opening your cottage to me. It is breathtaking each time I come.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
