Tea Time Tuesday 4

It's Tea Time Tuesday over Rose Chintz Cottage ... join Besse & Bea for a cup of Orange Pekoe.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 
"What! You, too? Thought I was the only one."
C. S. Lewis

Be thankful for your friends. 
Have them over for a quiet cup of tea and let them know what they mean to you.
Love each other. Life is too short to do anything less.
Until next time, dearies ~
Love, Bessie & Bea

Tea Time Tuesday 3

Tuesday has become our most beloved day of all ~ after all, it means it's time for Tea Time Tuesday. We love having tea. It is one of our favourite past-times!
Bea will often bake some delectable cupcakes for the occasion like this

We have been reading a little book called Painting as a Pastime by Winston Churchill. What a delight! If you can find a copy which isn't easy since it's out of print, read it ~ it's a 26 pages plus there are 18 colour plates of dear Winston's own paintings. He may not be the greatest painter England ever produced, but his paintbox brought him years of enjoyment. Here's a wee quote from the book ...
"I cannot pretend to feel impartial about the colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns. When I get to heaven I mean to spend a considerable portion of my first million years in painting, and so get to the bottom of the subject. But then I shall require a still gayer palette than I get here below. I expect orange and vermilion will be the darkest, dullest colours upon it. and beyond them there will be a whole range of wonderful new colours which will delight the celestial eye."
