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.

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