and sharing in Coffee/Tea Rivalry

Didn't want you to miss out on this free pattern offered by Living Crafts magazine -- a teapot!

UPDATE: A longtime and dear friend, MageSteve, posted this holiday haiku today on Facebook that I thought fit perfectly with this lovely teapot ornament:

a shining teapot
beside cookies and crumpets
coffee, who needs it
- MageSteve

An ongoing rivalry with another Facebook friend (who I will affectionately call JavaJoe) is perfectly served with this haiku. JavaJoe posts weekly with a coffee-inspired quote. I counter with a tea-inspired quote. Just love it when a pal sides with me on tea!

And just so you can share in the friendly rivalry (it's not eavesdropping if I show you, after all)  here is JavaJoe's response to the holiday haiku:

Coffee comes in five descending stages: Coffee, Java, Jamoke, Joe, and Carbon Remover. ~Robert A. Heinlein, 'Glory Road'

And I countered with this:

If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty. ~Japanese Proverb

Isn't this fun?
