TEA TUESDAY



Hey, I finally made it back to Tea Tuesday, in an effort to fulfull my self imposed challenges of trying new things this year!
I came upon a blog yesterday, Robin and the Sage, that I completely fell in love with, and it stirred up a lot of forgotten memories of when my daughter was young. If you visit the blog you'll see I am talking about Beatrix Potter, and Briana had a few pieces of this beautiful Wedgewood china from way back when she was a wee one. So I sat digging thru newspaper wrapped pieces last night till I found the cup, and instantly there is a smile on my face and the day is magical.
I chose Bigelow Orange & Spice today, sent to me by my lovely friend Karen, and I have to say I love it! I may have to have a coffee chaser though because the tea is caffeine free!
BTW, after using the tea bag and resting it on a paper towel, you will get the most amazing color towel for your next mixed media piece!
Don't forget to join Kimmie here, and all the other T Tuesday bloggers, and thanks for visiting!
Have a beautiful day!

Robin and the Sage said...

oh that cup!!! wonderful, joyful cup.
maybe Sharon you could send your address and few notes (or a long list) what kind of tea's you would like from Finland... I have such a obsession for tea, that i want always to send a tea for a folks who live faraway from Finland.

Oh that mug brings back so many great memories for me. My kids had some Beatrix Potter stacking blocks when they were toddlers. They were so darn cute.
Happy Tea Tuesday!

lots of tea dying going on for T Tuesday today ;)

two of our boys received Beatrix Potter cup and bowls when they were born...one has Hunka Munka on it

I have always LOVED Peter Rabbit anything AND did you know that the upcoming Chinese New Year is The Year of the Rabbit (funny because Christen's bunny mug made me think of that too)

Happy T to you sweet Sharon...off to check out your links
oxo
p.s. have you seen Renee Zellwegger as Ms Potter...totally charming...you really got me going with your wabbit!

Lesley said...

Hello my friend, it's been a while...thank you for popping into my blog and leaving a lovely message - much appreciated.
Sorry to hear you have not been so well either :(

You have been so creative while I've been away. Awesome jewellery. I saw those 'spunk' earings and thought - 'I want them...' and they're sold - c'est la vie!!

Tea Tuesday looks fun and Kimmie's blog is adorable - when I have more time I shall join in - I love my cuppa!!

I too had Beatrix Potter crockery for my boys when they were small and now Jack uses J's and loves it as much as his Dad did.

love and hugs

Sharon, I love your beautiful mug, but I have never heard of Beatrix Potter. Yep, I've always lived in the science department of life.

Thanks for your sweet comments about my plight yesterday. I appreciate them. Glad you are back with us on Tea Tuesday. And since it's now Wednesday, I'm drinking coffee with you.
