  1. Oh, I enjoyed this nostalgic interlude over my after-lunch cup of tea. I am terrible with faces and names but loved these wonderful pics all the same. Are you going to give us an answer key?


      1. Heh, not at all. I didn’t recognize Hedy Lamarr because I hadn’t seen her movies or many photos of her. I should have recognized Kate Middleton, but didn’t because it was a profile. Same with Natalie Portman. Some looked familiar but I couldn’t quite think of their names.


  2. What a fun post! I recognized almost all of them. Emma Thompson is another lovely celebrity I would add. She certainly sipped many a cup of tea in SAVING MR. BANKS.


  3. I got all but one (and I think I would have gotten her if she had been turned toward the camera a bit more….) This comes from watching too many old movies as a kid!!! And due to the power of suggestion, I now have to go make myself a cup of tea….


  4. I did okay: couldn’t place Hedy Lamar or Anais Nin. And scanning too quickly misidentified Kate Middleton’s profile as Keira Knightley’s. But my Earl Grey tea was 100% delicious.


  5. I recognised Julia Child! YAY! (‘Course, she was the only one I recognised…)
    And, isn’t Natalie Portman the girl who played Padme Naberre (Queen Amidala) in Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace (and maybe #2 and 3?)?


  6. what a great compilation! loved it. Got everyone (even Anais Nin!) except Hedy Lamar — sorry, Hedy! I’ve never seen her movies….
    Hope you’re keeping warm, Jama! Tea always helps! 😉


  7. Oh fun!!! I knew I was in good company — I drink most afternoons. And as you said, tea is perfect for this cold, cold winter.


  8. I love tea and drink it every day. I think I am one of those rare people who like tea and coffee both. Most people I know are firmly in one camp or the other. I will say that I only drink tea at home. I find that tea out is made with just hot, but not boiling water…ugh….(with the exception of our local Chinese restaurant) Williamson Tea is my favorite for bagged tea.
