It's time for tea! I thought I would share some poetry with you today. I have always had a fondness for the English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Her famous line, "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways," from her poetry collection, Sonnets from the Portuguese was first published in 1850.
Tea is being served in an American Beauty teacup. Soon I will do a tablescape with my collection.
A vintage bowl from the Federal Glass Company makes a perfect candle holder.
Pressed glass featuring 12 points. Pattern #2833 ~ designed in 1954.
Dried rose petals from the garden ... I collect them all summer long.
With Valentine's Day around the corner have you been enjoying any poetry?
A Sonnet ~ fourteen lines, each line containing ten syllables.
Thank you for having tea with me today. Don't forget to stop back to view my Valentine's Day cards and I will also be announcing on Saturday the winner of my Grow Your Blog giveaway.
