TEA 101 CLASS POSTPONED!!!

Marianne

With regret I must reschedule those planning on attending the Tea 101 Class scheduled for this Sunday February 18th. Unfortunately, I have a broken bone in my foot and am wrapped in a clumsy, ski-boot like apparatus. Until I feel more confident getting around in it, I do not want to be demonstrating to folks while carrying boiling water. My plan is to pencil those registered into the next class, scheduled for Sunday March 18th. My sincere apologies for this disappointing news.

February Events!

The shop is filled with special treats for you and your Valentine. Start with the Valentine’s Tea Blend, a blend of black tea with chocolate flavoring, and visually enhanced with the addition of pink rose petals. This is a smooth, luscious indulgence that will enhance any tete-a-tete. Patricia is ready for your flower order with a shop full of flowers and plants, just waiting for your pick-up or request for delivery. And the artists will be offering sketches of you or your sweetie, a perfect momento of this special time in your life.

The next Tea 101 class is scheduled for Sunday, February 18th from 2-4:00 PM. The cost is $15.00 per person and pre-registration is required.

So stop by the shop soon to feast your senses, or call ahead with questions. We look forward to seeing you in February, the short month with the Big Heart!

February is a Wonderful Month!

Marianne

valentinetag21.jpegI’ve always loved the month of February. For such a short month, it has a lot going for it, don’t you think? I mean, it starts out with Groundhog Day where we predict the coming weather. Then add in the birthdays of two of our most revered and important historical figures, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Of course, the most exciting and widely celebrated day in February is that all important February 14th, the day that can make or break the future of your relationship with that significant other. From childhood to adulthood, Valentine’s Day is full of anticipation and excitement. Flowers, sweet frilly lace, rich smooth chocolate, heart shaped meatloaf…or cake…or cookies…all of these images explode in a sea of pinks and reds, and purples and lavenders. I mean, seriously! don’t you just love February?
