Triple B's

My wee Brown Betty and a a sea of Typhoo tea sailed off the other day to the end of a beloved tale.
Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day by Winifred Watson is one of the dearest books I have ever read. I love Miss Guinevere Pettigrew. I admire her courage and her sudden strokes of genius. I want to hold her hand and stroke her dear face in affection and with acknowledgement of all the painful years she has endured. I want to laugh with her, but not at her. She and this book are a pair of keepers.
If you have not read Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, I encourage you to do so. I do not for one second think that you will regret it.

Glory be to a well written and loved book and to the companionship of some good tea. 
Love, Ellen.

I was surprised to see another blog tonight! you are on a roll!
definitely will get that book and even buy another Brown Betty
our teapot has just about had it although I have posh ones
the sit in a glass cupboard only coming out very rarely.

are already closing in.

One of my favourites, there is nothing like drinking a pot of tea from a tubby Brown Betty. Much love as always from here, look out for an e-mail.xxxxxx

Thanks for the recommendation Ellen. I am mad at myself because I stopped checking your blog since you seemed to have stopped posting and now I see I've missed a lot.
Keep it up ... your pictures and prose are outstanding.

Hi Ellen, I think I would really enjoy this book. Thank you for the recommendation. I also wanted to say thank you for the lovely comments you've left on my blog. I really appreciate them. You've been so warm and kind. I'm enjoying your blog and looking forward to getting to know you better. :)

Aw, another book to add to my list. I think, after your recommendation, I will go look for it. Maybe I can borrow it online from my library. That's the best thing I have discovered in a good while. Hugs to you , my friend.
