Snowman tea

It may be a bit chilly, but it's not snowing this morning. However, I was struck by how similar


my snowman mug is to the collage I have just started in my craft room. Thanks to being inspired by the stencil that reminds me of snowflakes, I have started the background for my most recent paper collage, that I originally was going to make into a quiltlet with fabric (like the snowman's material). I decided instead to continue working with watercolor paper, instead of fabric this week.


My tea today is Orange Grapefruit, an herbal blend from Germany that I got from the Spice Merchant, where I buy all my favorite loose leaf teas. And don't forget to visit Kimmie and the rest of my tea (and other drinks) friends to see what their weather is like this Tea Tuesday.

On a scary note, after downloading these photos from my camera, then going back to remove them using PS, I can no longer find any of my computer drives, other than my OS drive. Not sure how to proceed, but I take it I won't be taking or downloading any photos off my camera for awhile. I just hope it isn't some weird computer virus I managed to catch.

Well how lovely and cheerful is he! Hard to believe that you're suffering real cold now after that incredibly long summer...we've had the last three days of freezing sunshine, but that's been about it..it's all strange! I am so sorry not to have been around much..a MASSIVE WOYWW meant no blog commenting other than that, and my beloved father has been in hospital (scheduled)and that has meant extra support for Mama, she's showing signs of dementia which are really exaggerated when she's stressed, so have ben spending lovely sweet memory filed days with her. SHe tried to teach me to knit. Again. It didn't work, again! I hope the drive situation is easy to resolve..I wouldn't begin to understand, you're so far ahead of me with this stuff. If we don't see you tomorrow, I'll come back to sympathise!
