Oh, what a busy week and I find ourselves at Tea Time Thursday! The week has been filled with setting up Easter at my house, doing the same for dad on Tuesday, watching Otto on Wednesday, squeezing in my Etsy orders, setting up a Tasha Tudor group Easter Tree Ornament Exchange and off to bible study this morning! I kinda of crashed a bit this afternoon. Tomorrow we set up for the Expo Antique and Collectible show which runs this weekend. I just wanted to have a cup of tea and think this afternoon! I found these very spring mugs at Tuesday Morning and fell in love with them. So, today it was tea in a mug!
I have to say, I love the colors of both mugs and the little birds. Do you see the little dragon fly on this one?
The pink one is sweet too. I think the little bird looks like a chickadee....but a different color.
I LOVE Punch Studios notes and stationery. I owe my Pen Pal letters, so thought this might inspire me to write! I do love to write but when I'm in a busy pattern, the letter writing gets put on the back burner for a bit!
This is a lovely illustration by Tasha Tudor of an egg tree. Years ago, our Take Peace Tasha group, decided we would make Easter ornaments for each other. The first few were so small, so we all made each other an ornament. Our group has grown and now we have to do a one on one exchange! It's still fun. I do treasure all my ornaments and the tree is filled with sweet memories.
Look at my treasure I found today! I just couldn't resist and it HAD to live on my tree with my Tasha ornaments. I got the last one...sigh. I would have loved to send them to my tea friends.
I had to get a new tree this year. My last tree was a real branch and it just got crushed and broken over the years. I was delighted to find this one at a sale for $2. It works nicely. Enjoy a few pix.
I was reading about Easter egg trees last night and the Germans were the first to enjoy them. So thank you Germany for Christmas trees and Easter trees!
I have been enjoying my teapot necklace again. My dear friend Wilhelmina made it for me and I get so many compliments on it every time I wear it. I need to get a photo of me actually wearing it so you can really get a good look at it.
