WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT292 &
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY for March 4, 2014
I hope you are all recuperated from our fun filled trip to NYC. This week's tea party is a bit somber. Our honoree is a Korean Christian who has been diagnosed with a grade 4 gliosarcoma (a rare & aggressive brain tumor). The doctors say she has a few months to live. Her favorite things are: flower prints and Korean paper folding.
To honor her Korean heritage I chose this sijo.
The sijo (Korean 시조, pronounced SHEE-jo) is a traditional three-line Korean poetic form.
You ask how many friends I have?
Water and stone, bamboo and pine.
The moon rising over the eastern hill is a joyful comrade. Besides these five companions, what other pleasure should I ask?...Yon Son-do (1587-1671)
CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Bring flowers, nature and, if possible, Scripture.
EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA DESSERT (EPED):
Bring Asian inspired cards.
Instead of cookies, we will be feasting on traditional Korean desserts. I love the chrysanthemum. I had the opportunity to try these works of art when my friend hosted an 8th grade Korean student for a semester. He wasn't eating the desserts he brought which were even more intricate than those pictured here. When I asked him why he did not want some, he said, "these are not for children". I asked, "Why not?" He said, "Too expensive." I put a piece on his plate and he smiled. Food and sharing such a universal language.
This week our destination is Leesville, LA
If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Wha Ok Nam brought to our attention by txcrafter60. Here is a link to Melissa's gallery.

I tried uploading my card twice last night and didnt work so trying again now. Was early in morning maybe half asleep. HERE is my Lotus flower for WHA OK
We as people are raindrops of colorful ink , falling down Crisp and Clear, each a different shade more vibrant then the last, but once we realize at the bottom of an endless abyss we all fall into the same inkpot forming one color, only then can we come together as one My son.
I am so honored at all of the beautiful cards going to my friend's mom, Wha. Thank you all so much. Work dragged by so slow today because I was anxious to play in my craft room! Here is my card for friend Jane & her mom!
