A ROCKWELL WEDNESDAY -- TEA FOR TWO (1927)



Similar to life today, the 1920's were a time of hustle and bustle.  This illustration is a clever reminder to always make time for the gentle nuances in life.  A cozy fire, snuggly cat, content facial expressions and closeness of the couple capture the warmth and relaxation experienced with a little quiet time.  Rockwell successfully depicts the subtle charm of the American middle class.

  2. Hi Kathy! Isn't this sweet? Not too far from us in Massachusetts, is the Norman Rockwell Museum! He was so talented and that area gave him the inspiration for so many of his paintings. Thanks for popping in to see me and hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. How refreshing! I love it! We all need to take (& make!) the time for a break. I've always found tea soothing. My favorite? Earl Gray followed by English Breakfast.Appreciate the look back. woof
