I don’t have anything to say about it, so instead I’ll tell you that my Lily of the Valley’s are blooming! Yay!

I wish I could grow Lillies of the Valley. It’s too hot here :(

Terri HarpLady

Maybe you can grow them inside?

That’s a thought if I can keep my dogs out of them. I love them so much – they’re so pretty and my very first perfume I ever got to wear (a gift from my grandmother) was Muget and it was Lily of the Valley. That is a very happy memory. Thanks :)

I love the scent, too.

When I was a kid my mom made barbie clothes & sold them to all of the neighborhood moms to use for gifts for their daughters’ barbies. So, these were no ordinary doll clothes, they were really ritzy. I never actually played with my barbie, I wasn’t into dolls, but she was decked out! She had a mink stole (knitted angora), all kinds of fancy formals, & plastic life size lilies of the valleys. I loved those flowers, but I didn’t actually know there were actual flowers that looked like that until much later, & they smell awesome!

This morning after a long walk through Central Park I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There were three exhibits I particularly wanted to see: The Fabrege one, Martin Guitars one and the Lost Kingdoms, which has very very old Buddha sculptures, among other things. When I got the Fabrege exhibit – there were SEVERAL different Lily of the Valley items – a really beautiful one made of jade and moonstones I believe – which I took a photo of. When I got the Martin guitars, there were several harps there as well. One of them was a very cool Welsh triple harp. I love the Met it’s filled with wonders and today I thought of Terri HarpLady while I was there.

Sorry about my typos :(

Terri HarpLady

Yay! Thanks for thinking of me! You know, I’ve never been to the Met, or New York, for that matter. I hope you’ll post any pics you took on FB, or elsewhere, I’d love to see them. :)

I’m not on FB – but I will get them up on my blog when I get home on Wednesday. I have a lot to put up as I am doing a lot of tea drinking/shopping and eating and the blog is the only where I think I have where other people can see them. But I really truly did think of you because there were several harps. The triple Welsh one was the coolest though. One of them was really beat up (or as we call it at my house – well loved).

Terri HarpLady

I love harps! I used to have a welsh triple, it was an interesting instrument, but not particularly practical to play, so I sold it, LOL.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
