Winter in my craft room Tea

I managed to show up for Tea Tuesday because I sent these photos to my neighbor Sally who stuck them on her computer desktop.  I was able to download them to this blog post from her house as a result.


I'm not sure if you can tell it's cold in this room, but it's cold everywhere in this house.  With overnight temps in the low teens and yesterday's high not even reaching above freezing, it was time to drag out the first mug I saw, the one I usually use during the heat of summer to cool off.  This morning, though, I'm using it to warm my cold hands while drinking Bigalow English Teatime tea.  Granted, it's a bit early for tea time, but this is a deliciously smooth tea.  It needs nothing in it because it has a great taste.

On my table, I was planning to turn this fabric I dyed using cream of wheat this summer, into a quiltlet, then changed my mind and decided it would make a great scrappy book cover.


I took many shots of this tea, trying to show the steam coming off it, but the only one I got that actually showed any steam was this one.  The steam shows best in the upper left of the photo.

I'd love to have you join my Tea Tuesday friends and me, and drink whatever makes you smile today.

very happy that with all of your blogger issues you did not miss T today...
capturing the rising steam is tricky...I was inspired by Halle's photo some time ago and finally had success a couple of weeks ago by putting the cup where natural light was streaming in from behind...
it's a rainy day here with temps dropping...
hope you stay cozy and warm Elizabeth....looks like you have some fun creativity to help!
Happy T Tuesday to you and Bleubeard and thank your friend Sally for us for helping save the day

tea tuesday? what a wonderful idea! i had some pretty bad green tea: http://divers-and-sundry.blogspot.com/2013/01/green-tea.html

i'm open to suggestions for _better_ green tea ;)

i'm a fairly new reader of your blog and am enjoying your posts.

It's rainy here with the temps suppose to be dropping, they even used the "s" word again, but I'm doubtful. You can see the steam rising a little once you pointed out where it was! Stay warm. ♥ waving hi from the soggy hills of North Carolina :)

i was never able to capture the steam, though I did try! oh well, your blue and orange cloth reminds me of rusted chains submerged in water... x

Your photos took some detour before landing on your blog--so glad Sally is willing to do this for you!

I'll be watching for your finished book cover!

We've been warm here in NY--no wonder everyone (but not me) is getting sick! Tonight we are heading back to freezing & a few inches of snow is expected. Stay warm, my friend.

Halle said...

Glad you made it for Tea today. I miss "seeing" you around...

Susan said...

Brrrrr I don't like the cold either. But we did get snow yesterday in some parts of the country even around 8inches, which is absolute an enormous amount for us. With a lot of traffic jams. Riding my bicycle was hard too.
I hope you stay warm and don't get sick.

Becca said...

Came over to see what kind of artsy creations you are up to! Love the look of that hand dyed fabric on your table. I've been drinking more tea too to try and stay warm!

see you there! said...

I've been stopping by to see if you can post. Sorry you are having computer troubles. A cold house is no fun either. We've been colder than normal (at 28F) but still warmer than lots of places.

I've missed your posts Elizabeth! Just got over some computer issues of my own; it was in shop for a week and just got it back. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Stay warm!

We are headed for the deep freeze tomorrow. Love, Marilyn

Julia Dunnit said...

Glad you could 'borrow' internet time from your friend...it's definitely something to do with blogger I think...i had to use the mouse to hold your post in a postion for me to read, it kept jumping up to your blog header. Weird. Aside from computer issues, hope you're keeping well and there isn't too much extreme weather around you.xx
