Tea Time!

I've been busy crafting -- Can you tell?  A fellow crafter is hosting a swap in which you use decorated hat pins as an embellishment on cards.  I chose a "Tea Time" theme. 

When was the last time you had tea (or coffee) with someone, just "because?"  Its a great way to keep in touch with someone, a great way to just spend time together to catch up or to say "I care." 

I've had tea/coffee in many places and ways --- meeting a friend at Starbucks, going for a formal tea with friends and/or family at a tea house, putting on the kettle at home and just sitting to chat with a 'cuppa,' and even via conference call with a few friends on a multi-party conference line (we scheduled it ahead of time, each made their pot of tea and scones for it, and we then all sat and had tea while catching up on the phone).  There is a comfort and care about it that soothes the soul. 

Isn't it Tea Time?  I highly recommend it.

Wonderful card! Reminds me of teatime chats on the patio in summer :) Your pins are fantastic! I got one in the valentines swap and have been looking up pin-making videos since then!
