Welcome to tea, I hope that you are all enjoying a cup of your own brew of choice! Today it is Tangerine Zinger by Celestial Seasonings, with a very decadent (albeit tiny) dollop of honey and a slice of lemon. I hope that you can see what a lovely shade of rosy cranberry this tea is, and it tastes heavenly.
My miss-matched or new found friends (which ever you like) tea cup and saucer are Royal Kent and Johnson Brothers Old Staffordshire.
Many of you asked last week if Cost Plus World Market was the same as World Market, and it is. I have been shopping at Cost Plus since I was first married, then the name changed to World Market, and I didn’t change the name in my brain. But I wanted to let you know that they have a website and you can order tea there, for those of you who do not have a store close by.
Name changes get me every time, it is sort of like when a friend gets remarried or like some friends change their address or phone number so many times that you have to write their name and information in pencil in your address book. I guess that I am a quick learner, but slow changer if that makes sense.
Here are a couple of flowers that I have been working on. The large satin ribbon is a Gazania and the silk habotai ribbon is a Narcissus. I thought they looked nice on the sheet music that I used for my tea cup.
Then I wanted to share one of my favorite buttons. This button came from the 1939 World’s Fair, and I think that it is so cool, and strangely modern for the time period.
Another strangely modern item is a movie that we watched last week, Lost Horizons made in 1937, based on the novel by James Hilton, directed by Frank Capra. It was a restored version, and really intriguing. Very anti war with hope for a better future in Shangri-la.
Sign me up!
Well I hope that you enjoyed a cup with me, blending old with new, please join Kimmie and the rest of the gang!
