Teacup Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving "His Majesty"

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." 
~Melody Beattie

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Tea Friends! At this time of year, we bring out our Johnson Brother china, "His Majesty" to help us celebrate Turkey Day! Surrounded by friends and loved ones, may you cherish this Thanksgiving Day!

"Forever on Thanksgiving Day
The heart will find the pathway home."

Teacup Thursday: "Pumpkin Teapot"

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
