Monday's Quotes

Kind of a silly quote, but I like knowing the tea I drink has been touched or licked by the sun.
I definitely have a "crush" on tea.

Quotes for me have been a love for a long time.
and I thought this new series would be a great way to share with you.
For my birthday celebration 10 years ago I actually put together books 
for each of my friends, books with my favorite quotes.
When I worked for Nike my favorite boss also loved quotes,
so we started a bulletin board of inspirational quotes to share with others in the office.  
Now my Monday's will include an inspirational or maybe funny quote to share with you.

Saying goodbye to One Word Monday's I decided it was time for a give-away.
The give-away will be a gift of words: A hand written note from me on a pretty card with
a tea sachet of Harney's Paris tea, ribbon with words, and a pretty bookmark with words.
If you would like this gift of words, please leave a comment on this post.
I will announce the winner on Friday.

Come along with me and enjoy Monday's Quotes.

I love quotes, too, Marilyn! Finding a well-worded phrase that expresses your thoughts exactly--or that makes you see things in a new way--is incredibly satisfying. So, here's to Monday's Quotes! And I love your giveaway idea, too. A gift of words is always a treasure. x Gigi

A crush on tea? Oh, really?! I think it is more of a love affair!

What a charming photo and I love the apple cup -- that was my mom's daily china pattern and every day I wish we hadn't sold it when I was too young to know better!

I've been enjoying quotes for many years. Always on the lookout for new ones. What a fun giveaway you are doing.

{I've been trying to remember the name of the contemplative photography book you told me about.}

Monday's Quotes will be a fun series. And today's was a wonderful start!

Linda said...

Inspirational quotes will be something to look forward to on your blog. Just wanted to say that I think you have some family celebrations coming up in a day or two so hope you have a happy time then and in all of the month of May.

Please consider for the give away. I love your quotes and your pictures!...and Harney & sons Paris tea.

Lorrie said...

I love quotes, too. Thank you for entering my giveaway, now I'll enter yours. Tea and words are a great combination. And I'll be exploring your blog, too - looks like a fun place.

Mary said... the cup and saucer design and the teapot resembles a red delicious apple, perfect! I see your little yellow bird also - so sweet - a lovely vignette on the crocheted cloth.

Please, pretty please, add my name to your generous giveaway Marilyn - love Harney's teas but haven't tried "Paris" which must be delicious.

WORDS - QUOTES - I love them all. Are you proposing a Monday 'blog party' for us to join, or just planning to shower us with your lovely quotes? Either sound fun.

Happy day - Mary X
