I attended an afternoon tea and presentation today at LadyBugs Gifts & Decor in my hometown. The speaker, a massage therapist and herbalist, educated us on the benefits of herbal infusions, in addition to other health-related topics. Ronda, one of the owners, served Lady Londonberry and Peppermint tea, scones and savories. After the program, we had the opportunity to browse through the wonderful gift shop. All purchases were at a 10% discount.
If you live near me, I encourage you to visit this very lovely gift shop. The store has lots and lots of gorgeous tea-related treasures at quite reasonable prices. Today I came home with a honey dipper. Last time I visited, I picked up a copy of Chicken Soup for the Tea Lover's Soul: Stories Steeped in Comfort. I have heartily enjoyed this book! In the tradition of the Chicken Soup series, the stories are uplifting and highlight the best of humanity. It's a perfect book for giving yourself a boost of positive thoughts.
I recommend both LadyBugs Gifts & Decor and Chicken Soup for the Tea Lover's Soul.
Oh, and I almost forgot! I will be the guest speaker at LadyBugs' February Program. I'll be speaking on the etiquette of the British afternoon tea. I hope you can join us! Sunday, February 10th, 2 pm. Call 337-9908 to reserve your seat.
