Today we're returning to The Spice Merchant as promised.
I wandered through the store while my friend Sally
shopped for spices. This is where they are all kept. Since I was interested in the teas, a lady told me she would take me to where they were now being kept. As a result, she nearly pulled me away before I could get anymore photos, because this was just a small portion of the jars that were available. When I looked for the rest of the spice photos, I realized this was the only one I had taken, so I should have asked the lady to wait while I took a few more photos in this area where Sally spent every bit of her time.
One thing I did manage to get was this tea towel with the blueprint of a wine glass. I really like this and it reminds me of a certain "unnamed" stamper who creates stamps that look a bit like this.
Since this was all the spice photos, I decided to ask Sally to photograph the spices she purchased. Granted, I didn't move the container to a "better" spot, because there are no better spots in her house.
You can see the ones the person weighed for Sally,
and the ones that were already weighed and packaged. However, I couldn't get a good shot, so switched on the light in her kitchen
and although you can read the labels much better, no amount of adjusting the photos in PS took the ugly yellow tint away.
What was so sad was, I had just given Sally some fresh rosemary from my garden the day before.
She told me she spent about $40.00 and I believe it, because I didn't photograph everything in the basket. At least it gives you an idea what spices they sell at The Spice Merchant.
Now it's time for you to share your T post, too. It can be anything drink related as long as there is a drink involved in some way.
That means it could be a movie, a photo, a postcard, a painting, a page
in a book, traditional, hybrid, or digital art, or simply a cup or mug of any
drink, including wine like the tea towel shown above. Please include your direct link only, not your entire blog, because some people don't always make it till late Tuesday in their world and get discouraged when they have to scroll down to find your tea post.
Since this is the last Tuesday in June (can it really be possible?), I want to remind everyone to look through your previous posts for one you want to bring back for a second look on the 2nd. Any post is acceptable, no matter how long or how short. I hope you'll want to join us for a second look, and your own second post, too.
