Ceramics and a Museum

The Taiwan National Museum was a real treat.
I wish I could show you the beautiful things inside, but no pictures were allowed.
There was amazing calligraphy, jade, metal tools, and so much more.
We spent most of the day here and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Another full day was spent in YinGe, a town known for it's ceramics.
There was one shop after another of gorgeous teasets and so much more to see.
It was a true sight to take in on a warm day in Taiwan.
The street vendor was selling the largest hard boiled eggs I had ever seen.
And wouldn't you just love to sit at this table and share tea together?
It was totally gorgeous and I was told no pictures were allowed after this shot.
I did do a little shopping, what fun!
I came home with a beautiful tea canister that matched my favorite set at home, a little
turtle to sit on my tea table, and a few gifts.
There is nothing quite like a little shopping on Mother's Day to bring pure delight to the soul.

Only a couple more days to share of tea in Taiwan, then on Friday there will be a small give-away.
