An Autumn Tea

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. 
Albert Schweitzwer

I am sharing some quotes on friendship that remind me of some of the sweet friends I have met blogging.  One of these sweet people responded to a comment I made about these votives recently and then she mailed some to me.  Thank you so much Pat from On Crooked Creek.  The votives smell perfect for fall, they have a scent of tobacco.  Many times I have felt rekindled by my friendships with all of you reading my blog.  It is truly a blessing!   
The picture above is free of a watermark you may take it to use.  I have it on my desktop right now and it makes a really pretty desktop photo.  Thank you for visiting me, leaving sweet comments, and being my friend.  
 I will link this to:

The saucer is marked Olde English Countryside by Johnson Brothers.  I am not sure the cup is it's match but, it is marked Made in England.

Glad I joined you for autumn tea; a pretty teacup, leaves and a charming little votive candle.

Happy Autumn, Sherry! I love that teacup and I knew it was JB. The candle is very pretty and I enjoyed your quotes. I actually have the first one on my blog. I appreciate you joining me for tea today and have a beautiful first week of Autumn.

Pretty transferware teacup and I love finding Fall leaves to bring into the house. Reminds me of my childhood.

Je suis heureuse de vous retrouver après mes longues semaines d'absence...
Je voudrais bien partager une tasse de thé avec vous !
Un bel hommage à Dame Automne que cette merveilleuse tasse de thé illuminée par les couleurs des feuilles d'automne.
Gros bisous à vous.
