I got the most wonderful surprise in the mail this morning. Look at all those wonderful postage stamps! I can truly say that love came in a square envelope!
Some of you may have recognized the name of the sender. Yes, it's the ever thoughtful Julia "Dunnit" of WOYWW fame. She's definitely # 1 in my book.
EDIT: I covered my address and that of the lovely Mrs. Dunnit with a gorgeous ceramic tea bag holder given me by Annette (Voodoo Vixen).
Inside was this gorgeous little tea bag card and holder. I was super impressed because it also matched my St. Patrick's Day table runner. It couldn't have arrived at a better, more appropriate time.
When I opened the card, I was blown away by this tea.
And although I have been better for nearly a week, this put me over the top when it came to feeling better!
Julia asked me to sit and have a cuppa with her, so that's what I'm doing.
Or getting ready to do, as soon as the tea steeps awhile
This tea has very special meaning to me, because I often visit another British friend Helen's photo blog. She takes her readers to Kew Gardens and shows us what is in bloom while she's there.
This tea is nearly ready to drink. All I need to do is remove the tea bag and I'll be ready to enjoy it.
So, is it the Luck of the Irish with you today, or are you celebrating T in a different way? Will you share a drink, a visit out and about, or maybe some drink time related art? Whatever you chose, as long as it applies to a drink, something holding a drink, or something drink related, please link below and we'll be by to visit. We would LOVE to have you join us, too. I almost forgot. Unlike me today (for a change), your photos can be taken at any time, not just Tuesday. And for those of you who have not yet been affected by the dreaded time change, this post may seem a bit earlier than normal, but it's right on time in my part of the world.
