Not even close to "nothing but tea" Tuesday

I recently received a gift from Dawn at Pesky Little Sister who took my Altered Book Class.  If you are new to this blog, you will find the lessons on my right sidebar.  Included in the package, along with decorative napkins, designer fabric, doilies, and other goodies, was this book on loose leaf teas.

I decided to drink some Chun Mee green tea, a traditional tea from China.

Before I could enjoy this tea, though, I had to show even MORE lovely gifts Dawn sent me.  I am especially proud of these gifts.  The Jubilee acrylic stamp signifies my British heritage and includes a tea pot and cup and the words "Everything stops for tea."

And I couldn't have been more pleased with the two rocking horses Dawn sent, as well as the book on how to design and make your own rocking horse.  It includes measurements for the correct dimensions, even down to the bridle.  The size can be adjusted, because the dimensions will always stay consistent. And if you don't want to make your own rocking horse, they design and sell rocking horses, too.  What an awesome gift!  I was super impressed.  Thank you beyond belief, Dawn.

As for my Blogger problems, I want to talk to Halle who now has now left Blogger and has her own domain, before I move my blog elsewhere.  But it may be the only way to get back into blogging.  So, thanks for dropping by today and remember, we invite you to share your own tea stories with us each Tuesday.

Hi Elizabeth,

What a great stamp set! Your tea looks very tasty too. I'm slowly migrating from coffee in the morning to tea. It shouldn't be difficult for me because I drink decaffinated iced tea from noon to night!

The rocking horse is just beautiful too.

Hugs,
Kay

PS Sorry to hear about the troubles with blogger. You'll have to keep us posted on what you learn.

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
