Today I'm taking you to Europe, where Remembrance Day occurred on Sunday (November 8). I am also looking ahead to Veterans Day (November 11).
But right now, we are heading to Europe to celebrate T today. The water is hot, the tea is in the mesh ball infuser, which is sitting on the tea "bag" holder. So let's get to it.
Both the French and the British, as well as Australians are recognized today, much of it
thanks to my friend Annette (Voodoo Vixen) who sent both the holder and the tea. Thank you Voodoo Vixen for making this post possible.
And since it's very early (or late depending on your time zone) here, what could be better than loose leaf English Breakfast Tea, taken from a lovely telephone box tin. In the background is a portion of an altered book (AB) spread I created to celebrate Veterans Day in the U.S. on Wednesday. Unfortunately, if I get the AB image in focus, the tea is not.
The French are represented in my mug from Taylor and Ng. Although the original Taylor and Ng designs are no longer available, I understand a new online company bought them out in 1985 and are now making reissues. You can see some of their new mugs here. Mine and the others I collected, were manufactured and copyrighted in 1979, and they are one set of mugs I'll never get rid of.
Now I'm sure Linda, who speaks French, could tell you, but I had to make sure Le Cheval meant horse in English. I wasn't about to ASS U ME anything.
Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't show this gorgeous beauty I received from our dear Dianne last week, although I got it too late to share it for T time.
Now it's your turn to share your favorite T tale of the week. All you have to do is link below and Bleubeard, the tea gang, and I will be by to visit. The rules are simple. Any drink related post is welcome. Art, including hybrid, digital, or traditional in an AB, journal,
scrapbook page, tag, moo, or whatever is acceptable. A movie, postcard,
or book relating to a drink is acceptable, too. Of course, photos of a
mug, cup, teapot, or just a trip out and about can be linked. Bleubeard is standing by to tell you that your photos can be taken anytime, not just on Tuesday, or not even this month. It's your choice. And you are welcome to link to as many other sites as you choose, as long as you do the same to our T Stands For Tuesday party, too.
Today is Day 10 of Art Every Day Month, or AEDM, and I created a link up party to celebrate Remembrance and Veterans Days. It's never too late to join AEDM or our little T party.
And speaking of parties, if you don't post your link before I go to bed tonight, you probably won't hear from me till late Tuesday evening. I'll be at my friend Sally's all day cooking for her. I promise, the only "cleaning" I'll do will be her stove top, her counter top, her table, and possibly her oven, in the event I decide to bake something. This is only so I can properly fix her a few meals, not deep clean or organize anything.
