Wise Owl Tea

Wise Owl Tea: The Charm of Home
It's back to school time and I am having a little dessert with my tea today.  

Granny Cake: The Charm of Home
This cake is called Granny Cake.  I love easy old-fashioned recipes like this.  It had pineapple and walnuts and the texture of bread pudding. I only put half of the milk topping on it.  I didn't want it to be so gooey.

The tea mug is by Creative Tops the pattern is Owls.

There are even little owls on the inside rim.  So what is wisdom?  Do we get it at school? Or do we get it with life experience?  What do you think?  I used to think that was the only two sources of wisdom.  I now realize that both are the wrong answer.  
Here is some wisdom for you.  This was a BIG revelation to me.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take."
 ~Proverbs 5:6
The wisdom of God will only be given to you if you are seeking the Lord.

August Tea/Garden Journal

August Tea/Garden Journal: The Charm of Home
There was only one flower I wanted in my August tea/garden journal, it was sunflowers.  They bloomed in the garden just in time.  The small zinnias have grown into a row of beautiful non-stop blooms all down one side of the garden and I put a few of them in the picture too.

August Tea/Garden Journal: The Charm of Home
The teacup was from my great grandfather's collection.  It has a great story behind it.  The teacup is Blue Ridge Pottery. Grandmother said my great grandparents used to buy housegoods like this from a riverboat that came down the river to the small town I grew up in KY. 

August Tea/Garden Journal: The Charm of Home
August, full of the midsummer heat and blooms.  Summer isn't over yet, although the colors are starting to get tawny and golden all over the place.
Have you got golden tones blooming in your garden?

Midsummer Tea

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
Despite the fall decorations arriving early this year in the stores, it is just now midsummer. 

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
Nothing could portray midsummer more beautifully than the little teacup I won last week in a giveaway by Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is. The butterflies and bee dance across my cup...

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
and across the saucer too.

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
“Are you sure 
that we are awake? It seems, to me
that yet we sleep, we dream." 
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
The flowers are from my garden, hyssop and snapdragon. Like my new bonsai scissors?  
They are very sharp, perfect for cuttings from the garden.

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." 
                                                        ~Psalm 51:7
