It's Tea Time somewhere around the world

It's always lovely to share a cup of tea with a friend.  We have friends staying with us who are missionaries to South Africa.  They have shared so many amazing stories, and we have savored the stories over tea, hot and cold.

This tea angel  was given to me by my sweet daughter.

She is actually called "Angel of the Kitchen" and she is serving up a cup of herbal tea for your enjoyment.

And this second angel has a special place in my heart.

The "Angel of Hospitality" was given to me by sweet friends in memory of my BFF who passed away 10 years ago. My BFF was such an incredible hostess. Her door was always open and a pot of hot water ready for anyone who might stop by and join her for a cup of tea and some good conversation. She has been sorely missed.

It's always  lovely  to serve on my Christmas dishes.

The dishes are  "Happy Holidays" from Nikko.

I saw this Winter time teapot several years ago and fell in love with it. I've added the sugar and creamer that are made in Poland.

Today I am thankful for YOU, my blogging friend. I've met so many wonderful bloggers from all over the world. So I would love to invite you to share a virtual cup of tea with me today.

Both of your tea angels are sweet and the blue and white china you've paired makes for a welcoming tea table. I like how you described your late BFF, very hospitable.
Happy New Year.
