“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” – William Morris
Our homes are our havens, our re-charging stations. The objects we choose to surround ourselves with should be beautiful as well as functional. Beauty lifts our spirits, feeds our souls, ignites our creativity.
We believe in the importance of being kind to ourselves in our everyday lives. To strive to nourish our souls daily through even the smallest of rituals. From the very moment that we first wake up to all of the possibilities a new day holds, we depend on different objects to assist us in completing the daily functions and tasks of our day.
Although we may take for granted our alarm clock, our toothbrush, our towel, our soaps, and creams (we could go on and on), we should not do so! Why? Because each one of these things, and all of the others we incorporate in our day, impacts our senses directly and believe it or not, will make a difference in how we feel and in our attitude as we begin and continue to experience the rest of our day.
Consider for a moment the tea we choose to drink. We decide the type (loose leaf or bag), the flavor, the area of the world it comes from, etc. All of these things are important to us because they satisfy those oh-so-wonderful senses of ours, smell and taste!
Why shouldn’t we put just as much thought into the teapot or the kettle we use to brew our tea? It will, after all, impact not only the significant result; the flavor (taste), but also our senses of touch and sight. And even our hearing if we have chosen a lovely whistling tea kettle!
The goal is to bring together the practical aspects of our chosen drink with the beautiful, original, and often one-of-a-kind ways that are available to use, to serve, and enjoy our tea.
So stop a moment and take the time to listen, understand, and acknowledge; you will realize the incredible connection between our senses and our souls.
The simple act of brewing ourselves a cup of tea, with a tea kettle that we believe to be functional and beautiful, is just as important as sitting down, sipping and enjoying that lovely cup of tea.
We sincerely hope that the information we have gathered in these pages will assist you in finding that fantastic tea kettle or other item(s) that will help you to enjoy not just the beautiful and tranquil moments of your life, but ALL of them. We wish you many, many moments of nourishment for your body, mind, and soul!
