Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Valentine's Day, Emma Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day! I am joining several blog parties on this special day including Tuesday Cuppa Tea with Antiques And Teacups and Valentine's Day Tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage. There is a list of others at the end of the post. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

I shared the milk free Spritz cookies a few blog posts ago and we are finishing the last today with tea. In case you missed the recipe, just click on the photo to go to the blog post with the recipe.

From the archives of Time Was Antiques, here is my favorite Valentine's Day tea mugs by Emma Bridgewater, England. The pattern of the top is Hearts and the bottom is Love & Kisses. I love her designs, and always visit...and buy...when we visit the UK and they are gone! I always say I'll save one, then forget, and then kick myself! I am especially fond of Emma Bridgewater because that was my grandmother's name!

I hope your Valnetine's Day is a wonderful feast of love! Here are 2 special Valentine's Day new and one an old favorite...about love.

Compatible Valentine
On Valentine’s Day, I think about
The people who are dear,
How much they add to life’s delight
Whenever they are near.
You’ve always been a total joy,
Such pleasant company,
I very much appreciate
Our compatibility!
By Joanna Fuchs

 How Do I Love Thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an ideal Grace. 
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. 

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the Breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death. 
Elizabeth Barret Browning

I would also like to remind you to visit Antiques And Teacups to enter their drawing for an Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee mug. Just click on the photo.

 Have a great Valentine's Day vising the wonderful blog parties!
