A FEW TEA QUOTES AND PHOTOS FROM OUR HOLIDAY LAST MAY

These were in two glass cases on Deck 10 in the buffet area (when on the Alaskan Cruise last May).  The artist who created them was Pavlos Dionyssopoulas from Greece.  The date on the card in front of the case was 1999.

You can find out about the artist at this link.

Today I'd like to sit and sip,
Forget the world a little bit,
Ignore the things I have to do,
And just enjoy a cup or two.
When your day is topsy-turvy,
And as busy as can be,
There's nothing quite as calming
As a nice hot cup of tea.
Teapot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chair anticipating.
No matter what I have to do
My friend, there's always time for you.
It's Tea O'clock somewhere!
Tea, a hug in a mug.
The telling of a story, 
Like virtually everything in this life,
Was always made all the easier 
By a cup of tea.  
~Alexander McCall Smith~.
I expect I shall feel better after a cup of tea.
~P.G. Wodhouse~

The tea is calling and I must go!
Have a great day everyone!

  1. Incredible artistry and precision. And yes, tea makes a good day better, and lifts a bad one.

    1. I saw something like this at an old used bookstore several years ago. It was around Halloween and someone made various sizes of pumpkins out old books. I wonder now if he was an admirer of this artist.

  2. These are stunning! All made from layers of paper, so colorful and perfect. Pavlos is truly a creative visionary. Now I wish I had a nice cup of tea to sip while looking at these!

  8. Wow, they are amazing, thanks for sharing. Tea is probably the only drink both my husband and I dislike though I do like Chai Tea which is quite different. Happy weekend Diane

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
