Beware the Ides of March, because it is today!!! Not a good day for Julius Caesar, but hopefully a better one for you!!!
As I am posting, I have not yet had my tea- sooooooo, I will have my imaginary mint tea in this imaginary teacup!!
A dream of a teacup, with a dream of a price tag!!!
Speaking of mint tea, my mint is starting to poke thru the hard ground.
My daffodils are getting ready to bloom. This bunch will need to be thinned next year - it is a bunch that just popped up in the middle of the field behind the house. Part of the old fashioned daffodils that surrounded the old farmhouse, we are almost finished relocating all of them to around our own house. I just like seeing this bunch pop up out of nowhere - a signal that spring is almost here!
If you have have been to Kimmie's blog for a list of other tea partiers, you may have seen the beautiful little banner she made recently. Well, I am happy to say, that happy little banner now resides with me!!
If you haven't checked out Kimmie's Etsy shop, you really should - who wouldn't want to have of piece of Kimmie's talent !
The banner was so prettily packaged in fabric and wired paper ribbon - (I had started to open it, when I remembered I NEEDED to take a picture, so the twine bow is undone!)
Above is the wired ribbon, also two of Kimmie's little business cards (moo cards?)picturing some of her art.
The banner is made of stiffened tea bags (appropriate for today!) with her own carved ink stamp designs, layered on vintage dictionary pages.
Temporary place of honor over a doorway, out of the sunlight, so it won't fade! Once we paint the walls (!) the banner will have a permanent spot.
Thank you Kimmie!!!
