Linda’s Tea Parties

I discovered the pleasure of drinking tea and hosting tea parties in my Country Studio about three years ago. At that time, several of my advanced painting student drank tea, and I held classes in my studio. I learned about tea from them. I no longer teach in my studio, so I have turned the second room into a tea room for small tea parties. I used an old fruit crate from Fair Oaks, which I treasure, for my tea caddy.

Linda’s Bird Art

I have gradually added tea pots, cups and saucers, a hot plate and kettle, and a variety of teas to my tea room. Recently I bought new table cloths and napkins designed by Ree Drummond for my tea tables. They are bright and colorful. I am a big fan of her Pioneer Woman blog and TV show. I bought a three tiered, lovely china food server for my scones and tiny sandwiches, served at the table with tea. Some of you know that I was a chef/caterer for 13 years. That has come in very handy for my studio parties and tea parties.

Rustic Wood Paintings

I find  hosting the tea parties for my visitors to be a great pleasure as an artist. In these days of stress and strife, a gentle tea party is welcomed. Surrounded by my paintings out in the rural part of the county with it’s own nature trail, the setting could not be better for a cup of good brewed tea. A walk on Deer Woods trail in Fall through Spring is delightful, before or after tea. You will see lovely trees, tortoises, and occasionally indigenous animals of north Florida on your stroll.
