T Stands For Welcoming Tulips

My taxes are finished and my friend Kathy and I will be sharing birthday joy together on Tuesday.  Her birthday was the 11th and you all know when mine is (grin).

I got a little carried away today

with my photos of this recycled tea pot filled with tulips from my back yard.

I just loved how they looked through my viewfinder,

and realized that many T visitors get to see the dining portion of my living/dining area,

but seldom get to see the view from this side of the room.  I've picked these tulips to welcome my friend Kathy who, as I previously mentioned, will be joining me for a drink of her choosing, food, shopping, and gift exchanging Tuesday morning in my world.

So, what does your T Tuesday look like this week?  Are you sharing something you've read or seen relating to a favorite drink?  Are you sharing drink related art, whether it's digital, hybrid, or traditional?  Are you sharing a scrapbook layout, or maybe a spread in an altered book?  Did you prefer, as I did this week, to let your photos do the talking?   Or were you out and about, sharing a drink along the way?  Regardless, please join us by linking below.  Bleubeard and I always welcome new, as well as long time visitors, and hope to make you feel at home.  Squiggles has not yet learned the fine art of entertaining, but I'm working on it (grin).






This is Day 14 of 22, and I recycled a broken tea pot and turned it into a welcoming vase of tulips that will greet my friend Kathy when she arrives.  BTW, if you could post early (those of you in the US because it's already Tuesday in other parts of the world), I will be able to visit.  Otherwise, it could be very late Tuesday my time before I'm able to join you for T this week.

What a beautiful view of your lounge room, and that yellow is a bright view of contrast.

Happy almost T Day! What gorgeous tulips you have and the pitcher is perfect for them. Lovely view of your living/dining space too, lots to see and admire. Looks like some sunshine outside too, YAY! I'm linking up with my Easter pictures since I missed last week.
It was a gorgeous sunny day here today then about 5 the rain and wind came for a couple hours. Just having that day of 70's and sunshine made me happy though, I needed it so much.
Have a wonderful birthday get together tomorrow! I will be having a girl day with my mom/sisters on your birthday.
Hope all is well with you. Have a great week.

Your tulips in that lovely tea pot are just perfect as they grace your pretty dining room.
All of that beautiful wood (oak I am guessing?)and special trimmings make for a lovely and inviting scene.

Oh those gorgeous daffodils! Hope you have had a wonderful day! I'm guessing that lunch will just about be over by now! I must apologise for the 'double booking'! I had intended a separate post but got stuck in traffic jam on the way home from picking up GD from school so edited this morning's TIOT post! Hope you don't think me ill-mannered! Great to see your room from a different angle! I do love those burgundy candles! Hugs Chrisxx Oops! Have to go and further edit forgot to add my other pic!!!
