If Teacups Could Talk

I have a lot of books on tea. A lot. (Just ask Sweetheart!) But my favorite book of all is If Teacups Could Talk by Emilie Barnes. I have read Emilie's books on home management and hospitality since I was living in a dorm room. Of course, mine was one of the only dorm rooms with its own tea set...
As soon as I saw ITCT with the beautiful illustrations by Sandy Lynam Clough I bought it. I've never regretted that purchase. I've enjoyed spending hours pouring over this delightful book while drinking my cuppa and planning when I could have my next tea.
While I was pregnant with Pumpkin I worked at The Tea Rose in Arvada, Colorado, which is a delightful tea-themed gift store. We sold ITCT all the time. Whenever someone would ask us what tea book to buy it was what we would recommend. From tea planning tips to easy, but delightful recipes, ITCT has it all.
If you buy only one tea book for you, or a friend this is the book to get!

I love this book too! I have my moms which I borrowed, and hate the thought of returning! The shop you worked in sounds delightful!

This is my favorite tea time book, too.

I think it is because she creates an atmosphere in that book that makes you FEEL you are at a tea room.

Hi Kimberly,
I just saw your link on Kelli's and thought I'd say hi. I recently posted a picture of my teacup collection! This book looks really intersting!
My daughter would love it too!

Hmmm...I thought I commented on this already. However, I'm having computer problems so it could have "burped" right then.

This is my favorite tea book, too.

I really enjoyed reading your meme, Kimberly! I would love to come and have tea with you. :0)
