I have a headache today - so this will be an odd assortment of pix!!!Fortunately, I preposted most of this!!
I am sipping my mugicha barley tea, in hopes of spring and summer actually showing up at some time!!!
If you have never visited Robyn Gordon's Blog- it is a MUST!!! This link is a recent post of hers- that is just perfectly suited to today!!! Make sure you check her other posts - she is an accomplished carver, and always has wonderful artists and links to explore.
My recent hrift store finds: this is a cool 1920's pot, the top finial pulls up with the tea strainer attached.
Here is another aluminum vintage, even mini-er, teapot/coffee pot, with a tiny red handle to remove the strainer.
Some tea related stuff I made for gifts and for Julieanna's shop - business card cases, chalkboard trays, and some tea drip catchers. The drip catchers are a great way to use up left over fabric scraps! I wrote about these in an earlier post- Donna makes some adorable ones for sale- see her blog.
I bought some from her, and played around to make a couple for myself (I gifted away the ones I got from her!) I've been making my with 3 half circles instead of 4- so far, it seems to work since I have smaller scraps to work with!!!
The chalkboards are made from vintage, tarnished silverplate trays. The one pictured is an old pewter tray.
And for some non- tea photos - here is a soon to be new member of our equine family:
Please drop by any Tuesday for tea - visit Patty or Kimmie for a list of other tea partiers
