Pat of Artfully Oogleboops and Ooglebloops World took part in last month’s Tea Cup Exchange and surprised me with a lovely thank you gift for hosting the exchange. I feel so blessed by her thoughtfulness and gifts. Pat sent me one of her beautifully made, one of a kind ballet totes…mini size for mini ballerinas. 🙂 (I’m not a mini anything, but we do have a wee granddaughter who loves her ballet lessons. Pat sent a sweet note on “tea” note paper. I’m struggling with a small dilemma now. I know Rachel would love the bag, but my daughter saw it and said what a great Bible tote it would make. The dilemma…to keep it because Pat made it and make one for Rachel or give it to Rachel. I’m leaning toward the latter solution but have not made a solid decision.) She also sent me a selection of very special loose teas and a tea stick from Italy. The tea stick is a first for me, and I think I’ll brew it right after I publish this post. My husband and I are listening to the Christmas music our church choir will sing as our special cantata, and a cup of tea will only enhance the moment. A cup of tea enhances any moment.
Update…the green stick tea was wonderful, wonderful! I’m going to look into getting some of those.
There’s a little ballerina in all of us ladies. If you would like to have one of these one of kind totes contact Pat by visiting her blog…I know she’d be happy to hear from you.
One more picture for this post. Our pinecone lilies put on an amazing show this year…I thought I’d share their beauty before I get back to work. Three of many…
Until next time…I’m sipping my green tea.
OK, who ordered the green tea? ~ from Samurai Jack, Episode 9~~
