We never know the impact we have on one another with the simplest art of communing together if only for an afternoon on an infrequent ocassion. Everyone is so busy racing about nowadays, we forget the little things such as picking up the phone to stay connected or meeting for an hour or two for a bite to eat. Those teas are some of my most memorable experiences because not only did we commune with each other, we shared our creativity and marveled at the talents of others.
I'd like to share a quote I read by Florence Farr from 1910.
"We are more moved by one conversation than by many eloquent discourses. After all, what is so permanently delightful as communication of ideas?"
This is what the blogging community brings to me, and I hope I bring something to you as well I am blown away by the talent and sharing I encounter each day when I visit the link parties and see what others have come up with and the fact they are willing to share so freely their creativity.
Just to share a little bit about this vignette, this tablecloth is the only vintage tablecloth I have actually saved for myself. I love the old cotton tablecloths, but once I restore them, I take them to the shop and off they go to a new home. I just could not part with this particular one. I think it's luscious! Speaking of luscious, what could be better than lemon blueberry scones? No, we didn't make these. I got them at Trader Joe's. Yummy just the same - probably better.
