Happy tea on Tuesday! It’s a beautiful, crisp day in Mississippi. I relish cool weather and am thankful for it. It’s perfect weather for opening windows and letting the cool breeze flow through our house. It’s perfect weather for hot tea.
Last week I broke the morning coffee habit I’ve been chained to for more years than I care to confess. Instead of switching to hot tea after a couple cups of Java, I start with black tea to waken my senses and continue sipping tea throughout the day. Coffee hadn’t been satisfying to me lately, because all my favorite brand CHOCK FULL OF NUTS has been discontinued locally. Nothing compares. I read tea’s caffeine is far easier on our bodies and with so many wonderful tasty options, I decided to test the theory. It’s true. I may have a cup of coffee again from time to time, but it won’t become a lifeline again.
Last week while browsing an on-line shop Abbi May’s I found a charming fabric line I couldn’t resist. A couple days after my first visit I returned and purchased a fat quarter pack of the Tea Party line by Susan Branch for RJR Fabrics. (Service and quality of fabric are both excellent. Check her out.) This morning I’m sharing my new play pretties with my tea party friends. I’ve not decided what I will do with them…for sure, I’ll look at them for a while hoping for inspiration and admiring their charm.
Seven fq’s are adorned with tea balls, teacups, teapots or tea sayings.
The remaining 19 fq’s coordinate with the themed 7…
I started my morning off with yummy Irish Breakfast Tea by Twining’s. This smooth, black tea has become one of my top 10 favorites. A wonderful thing about it is how easily obtained it is…most grocery stores in our area stock Twining’s. The mug is a Blackburn jelly jar…just right for an ample, eye-opening serving (microwaveable, too).

Until next time…
