A CUP OF TEA
When your day seems topsy turvey
And as stormy as can be
There's nothing quite as tranquil
As a nice hot cup of tea
While you savor this ambrosia
Your problems fade away
Its warmth will bring you comfort
And brighten up your day
So take a private moment
There's a calmness as you'll see
All because you briefly stopped
To sip a cup of tea.
Tea pot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friend there's always time for you.
I wish we could sit down together
And have a cup of tea
But since we can’t
When you have this one
I hope you’ll think of me.
Sunday afternoon tea, yummy brownies sent to me this week, delish. Now its not possible to sit down and have a cup of tea and demolish this box of Brownies with the sender, but she knows given the chance we would and I would have to fight her for the last one, these are seriously yummy and I don't usually do chocolate cake! Thank you "sender" but really save your pennies
and my waste line and don't do that again, :P
Our girls did a fantastic job on the blog hop yesterday, I was up to my eyes but today I should get a few hours to answer emails and do the hop over again and read all your sweet comment left for our girls.
Your were all amazing and very generous to share your time and creations with everyone.
To celebrate I am taking you all out for a virtual afternoon tea, as we are scattered all over the world its the nearest thing to a get together we can have.
So how many sugars? Milk with that?
I have to give a slap to one girl who doubts herself and I can only say that you should never feel stressed out about this, you were chosen for a reason, enjoy and have faith that you are a talented crafter.
Yesterday was full to bursting as was I after so much coffee and cupcakes!
The store was busy, many sell outs and a lot of happy ladies away home to try out some seasonal crafts.
Thank you to Erika from Personal Impressions for a festive demo.
For those who cant remember her blog it is here
Cup of tea, such an English tradition, do you like my antique china tea set, I have at least 5 and I do believe they might be back in fashion amongst the Cath Kidston
lovers. The cabinet which holds my china tea sets has not be opened in years, its locked to keep little finger out, but the key was lost. So today in shear determination to get to these cup, I found a key that may not be the original but it worked.
Improvise , yes as a crafter we have to do a lot of that but in the end the result was the same, success!
I obviously had a thing to tea sets so its understandable that we have this
stamps at Sugar Nellie.
Ideal for a little project that includes a poem
and a tea bag.
makes great project with pockets and things, go see what on her blog, its well worth a visit.
I also picked up some starbucks coffee packets in Tesco and planned to use Manga
to do something
similar for coffee lovers. Maybe one day when I retire I will find the time to try out all these ideas, or maybe a stamp camp would be a good place to go and have nothing but crafting to do for a few days, I am sure I could get plenty done then if inspired by fellow crafters and lots of cake!
If you know of a great craft camp let me know, I am happy to travel to USA if that's where the action is, we did have a great time at Scrap a Ganza in Holland a few years ago and I do miss it, so where else is a girl to go for a craft weekend that is not attached to one stamp brand?
Today I have a very inpatient 11 year old waiting for his 5 new brown hens he collected yesterday to lay some eggs!
I have to have a giggle at him,the expectant father LOL let hope they lay before school on Monday or I don't think I will be able to get him down the road onto the school bus.
The lonely guinea pig has been joined by two girls, there were no boys at the pet shop, so until its time to worry about what comes next, they are happy and hopefully safe now that the dog has the hens to stalk.
Enjoy your day of rest and remember that this is the last day to enter the candy draw.
