Hello people!

Everyday we discover new things, things that aren’t necessarily new to other people, but, they are new to us. Things, such as, how beautiful a word can be or how much energy the sun can give us.

During TeaChats we will write, whilst sipping tea, about certain topics that we find interesting, or that we recently discovered, anyway topics we feel like writing about.  Continue reading

To your disappointment, you see no snowflakes on your window. The world has unfortunately not turned white over night. Not that any weather forecast predicted it, nevertheless you still had a tiny bit of hope.  But, that will not spoil your day. You go downstairs to make some tea for yourself. The whole house is quiet as no one seems to have woken up just yet. Continue reading

Here are the elements that we use to wrap our gifts during Christmas.  Continue reading
