Celtic Woman

A Saint-Patrick Tea

 To everyone who left kind worried messages after reading my last post, thank you very much about your concern. As you can see, the Little White House has been saved from the water, though it's been a very difficult time.

The series will be back with a third part on how to lessen rising damp. But I thought we could have a break with a nice cup of tea, what do you think?

Merci à tous ceux qui m'ont écrit des commentaires compatissants suite à mon article sur les problèmes d'humidité rencontrés dans ma Petite Maison. Comme vous le voyez sur ces photos, je suis maintenant au sec et j'expliquerai comment dans un prochain article. Mais là, c'est l'heure de la pause thé.

I bought this Saint-Patrick tea some weeks ago, thinking I would be allowed to drink tea by March... But no such luck (that's how you know, I'm not really Irish, I guess), this drink still burns my tongue like fire (one of the side effect of anemia, who knew?). Still I brewed some for you and the smell was enough to make my day!

J'avais acheté il y a quelques temps au Comptoir Irlandais, pensant naïvement qu'en mars je pourrais reboire du thé... Mais anémie mon amie me l'interdit toujours: le thé et le café me brûlent méchamment la langue... Un des effets secondaires de l'anémie, bizarre, non?

I chose this cup for you from my collection. It's actually a French coffee cup from the forties or fifties, given the design. But I thought the light green rim was perfect. It's not an Irish green, though, it's more of a sage green. It's from the "Faïencerie d'Orchies" whose mark is a wind mill. Speaking of wind-mills, if you want to see a real one, hop on here.

Cette tasse dont le tour vert d'eau m'avait séduite dans un vide-grenier provient de la faïencerie d'Orchies.

It was so nice to have you over for tea, lucky you who can drink it! Thanks for stopping by!

J'ai été ravie de vous avoir pour ce petit thé irlandais. Merci de votre visite.

See you soon,

    Are their any antique shops where you live as I would love to see photos or antique or tea shops. I am an American who hasn't traveled much - although I have been to Israel in 1999 and love seeing your country.
