What would Tuesday look like without tea?

I have NO idea what Tuesday would look like without a tea post, but I DO know I don't have any tea related photos in my camera.  In fact, my camera is still not letting me get ANY photos off it.  So, I'm doing the next to best thing I can.  I'm showing what Tuesday would look like if I pull a few photos from the past.

This is one of many signs I made for my "Lots of Buttons" tutorial I posted last year.

Of course, if I am honoring tea, I also have to honor coffee, which is by far and away my favorite drink.

And although this one is supposed to hang on my studio door when I am out shopping, I love the tea cups and pot images I used.

For my 10th Tea Tuesday post, I created this.


After the first year, I made this collage using a free program that no longer exists.  I know it was 2010, because it was the year Earth Day turned 40 (as seen in the cup in the top right box).

I bet you want to see it up close and personal, so click the photo to see it better.

Last year was brutal and the heat took over the yard.  I was inspired to post this because the glass and the pitcher had belonged to my Grandmother.  I bought the quilt for my Grandmother while she was alive, but she refused to quilt it (she quilted everything by hand) because some of the points didn't match up properly.  Now you know where I get my anal tendencies!!

I made this piece for an Inspiration Avenue challenge, then gave it to my friend Dana for Christmas one year.  It's a block of wood 8.5" wide by 1.5" deep.  I'm no longer sure how tall it is, though, but it didn't quite fit on my scanner.

And since it's Tuesday, I would like to offer you your choice of teas.  Lemon or cream?  Doesn't matter, I have both.

Please join me for tea (or whatever your drink is) today.  I'd love to get something going each Tuesday.  Maybe a linky would help?  Thoughts, your drink inspired links?

I rather like the look back at past tea times! Sorry, don't have any more suggestions re the card... I did read that HP photo printers cause this problem if you haven't ticked a certain box but it didn't sound like you put it in a printer? Hope you get it sorted soon!
Mines with milk... no cream, no lemon... milk... so you will need to go shopping if I pop by for tea... ;)

Oh and I took the top off and redid it... it was driving me insane... LOL

What a fun post. When I saw the first picture I thought it was a bag. How cool would that look to go shopping with.
Thanks for the share.
Hugs, Neet xx

Love this weeks post, looking back shows the tracks ofhow you got to where you are today. I'm not a tea person, but I always read your Tea on Tuesday posts.
Me? I'm black coffee, occasionally flavored with cream.

What a terrific post! Love the quilt top and pitcher...great story about her refusing to quilt it. Bet you were annoyed. But it's beautiful! Adore the tea/coffee wall hanging too. Hope you're having a lovely day dear E!

Rita said...

A look back at your tea posts! Sweet!
Coffee is by far my favorite, too, but the whole process of making tea and all the paraphernalia really intrigue me. :)

Love the pig cookies and all the wonderful shots from tea days gone by. Hope your camera feels better soon and gives you lots of future photos. I had some iced tea mixed with lemonade the other day. It was quite tasty !

A trip down memory lane is very effective. Hope your problem is solved soon.

Great post. I love the montage of china cups and pots etc., however mine has got to be Yorkshire Tea with just a little semi skimmed milk. A ginger biscuit or a custard cream would be perfect!
Thanks so much for your lovely comments and I'm pleased you like my flag tag book.
Enjoy your weekend...

I had to pop back over and had a blast looking at your tea posts and cups etc. i have a tea pot collection and tea cup one as well. My Jane Austen Group loves to come for tea, so I enjoyed looking! (I take mine with lemon!) Thanks for the kind visit! Enjoy the weekend! Love your summer art quilt too! Winnie
