Tea For One Gift Set | My Hutch and Buffet

I wonder what it would be like 
to live in a world where it was always June.

Hubby and I were invited to a brother and sister's home for lunch one day after he finished delivering a Bible Based talk in their congregation.  The food was so delicious, you can tell she put a lot of care and time on them, you can also tell she was really an excellent cook.  Company was very much enjoyable too.  I met new friends and learned about them, hubby and I learned about wood fireplaces and how to maintain them (we have a new wood fireplace in the house, so yay!)... We heard not only encouraging experiences but also funny mishaps and misadventures.  Including the story of how he caught the racoon that was rampaging his little garden and his efforts to transfer the vicious little thing far far away as he doesn't have the heart to kill it.  It was so refreshing to learn how they dealt with their troubles in the past and how it helped them and their children have very happy lives today (They had 9 children, all doing well right now)... Oh, my tummy was full but more so, my heart was overflowing with good feelings.

At dessert time, she served a delicious pie.  She served percolated coffee from what looked like a silver coffee pot.  Then for those who asked for tea, she handed us a pretty glass cup and a small tea pot of our own.  A wooden box that looked liked a book contained tea bags, different flavors, all in very pretty colorful packages.  It was amazing!  I thought I was in a beautiful tea-room or somewhere else awesome.  As if that wasn't enough, they even gave us home made preserves and fresh veggies to take home.

It was about an hour and a half drive home which gave hubby and I the opportunity to talk about what exciting day we just had.
