Tea Time for Gothic Arches


Our theme at Gothic Arches this week is "Tea Time".
It set me thinking about all the traditions surrounding the humble cup of tea...one of which, in our house, is " one spoonful for each person ....and one for the pot"
.....and woe betide anyone who forgets and makes tea like "dishwater"!
Of course, now we think "teabags" instead of "spoonfuls" so even traditions get updated !
Thanks to The Graphics Fairy for the image of the woman....
.....and thanks for dropping in !

Gorgeous arch, RubyMay. I have actually gone back to using loose tea (spoonfuls as opposed to bags) and think the tea tastes better. Great job on your arch.
