I am sipping a lovely cup of Yorkshire Gold - received in a swap a while ago - so I can't give credit to the person who sent me this!!! It must have been from one of the teabag swaps I did!!
My footed cup is a thrift store find - silver colored pedestal with a black and white winter panorama circling the cup. Not really large enough for my usual cup of tea - but I like it!
A trip to the local nursery this past week netted me bags full of little gourds and pumpkins!!! I thought they were a steal at 50 cents a piece!!! When they are totally dried out- I will be saving the seeds to plant next year. I also got a wonderful large, warty pumpkin that I will be saving seeds from - can't wait to grow them!!!
The primitive hurricane glass column didn't have a pillar candle yet, so I filled it with more tiny gourds.
While drinking my tea, I am admiring the little prize I won from Faerwillow's giveaway- beautiful, soothing "calming beads"- made of smooth stones in shades of earth tone greens. You must visit her Etsy shop, she has a variety of these calming beads- a modern day version of "worry beads" - and this one works for me!!! Thank you, Faerwillow!!!
