Just in case your a new reader of MC http://www.marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/10/getting-to-know-you/ I was an elementary school teacher in my former life. Anyway,  over the 30 years of teaching I received some p.r.e.t.t.y s.p.e.c.i.a.l gifts.       The precious teapot is one of them. It was handmade by a student’s mom, close to  20 years ago!                            Look at what it says on the bottom. D.T.B.Y  “Dare To Be You”… Sweet! Soooo… anyway, how was your week?

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Friday! Any special plans for the weekend? Often, during the week. ..as I ponder about what we’ll be chattting about. ..I think about you, wondering how you are, and how your week is going.  Of course, I’m always hoping that you are well. And, if your week has been a little challenging, I’m hoping that our time together brightens your day. It brightens mine to see you. ♡ I don’t know about you. ..but this week just  flew by for me. Was it perhaps,  because Monday was a holiday? Oh Well…  anyway, I had a fabulous week beginning with last Sunday when I attended a…     scrumptious Downton Abbey tea event in Pasadena.

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Friday! and, happy first week of February. Oh, and happy be-lated groundhogs day! Those little critters are soooo cute! I wonder if they ever get discouraged waiting for Spring…   They inspire me… (I’m still thinking about the critters) they have courage, no fear, and they just keep waiting in darkness to start their new little life. A.g.a.i.n…. I guess that should give us all hope. Especially, now that January is over…and any goals we might have hoped to begin way back then…might have gone back under ground too.
