Tea time T


Today I'm at home, waiting for spring.

Spring has bloomed on my dining room table.

Although I'm not a big fan of Lipton tea, I wanted this for the tea bag and the fact it's black tea.  Don't worry, I'm not going to drink it, I'm going to dye fabric with the tea and

share the tag I made yesterday from the tea bag.

Now it's your turn to share your drink related post.  In case you don't know the rules, please link any post below that involves some form of drink.   That drink could be made from art, sketched, digital, hybrid, or traditional.  It can be a time when you were out and about, or a drink you had at home.  It could be in the form of a book you read, a postcard you received, scrapbook page you created, or a movie you watched.   It could even be a tag you created like the one I made.  It doesn't matter as long as you can, in some way, tie it back to a drink.  After linking your post below (direct links only, please), Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit and enjoy whatever you choose to share.  And remember, as Bleubeard would say, your photos may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday.

What a lovely colourful table cloth! It looks very bright and summery (or spring-y in this case).
I love your tea bag tag. I saw how you made it on yesterday's blog. Did you do the stitching by hand?
You weren't so well last week. I hope you are feeling better now.
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

Its a lovely bright welcoming, pretty cloth on your table today. I hope spring comes soon as well. You have me wondering what you will be dyeing and what you will be making.
The tag for sure looks fantastic.

Happy T day!

Linda Kunsman said...

Oh I like the deal you have with Lipton:):) Not a fan myself but it's the only one hubby drinks. Beautiful spring cloth! I only wish, as we are expecting from 12" to 24" or more beginning tonight as a Nor'easter is in the forecast for much of the northeast-UGH!!!

Love your spring indoors-and the tag-very cool

CJ Kennedy said...

Love your placemat and napkin. That's the only bit os Spring I'll be seeing for awhile as the blizzard is bearing down on us. Not a big fan of Lipton. I prefer Tetley. Though I like Twinings English Breakfast first thing in the morning. Happy T Day!

Janet said...

I am sure your pretty table setting will lure spring to show up. I'm cheering it on myself. I do like that tag.

Krisha said...

What a cheerful set up E! I love the tag you made with the tea bag.
Seems we are only allowed a couple weeks of spring weather this year, the temps are starting to climb quickly here. From sweatshirts to tank tops in a weeks time is a little quick for me....LOL!
Happy T-day

Spring has been untimely ripped from us :( We're expecting a low tonight in the lower 20sF and a high today of 40. I find your placemat pattern very encouraging :)

Dianne said...

Ha! I so needed to see flowers today! It's freezing cold here in Ohio, a little snow, and lots of windiness! but I bet it's similar where you are...fun tag you've made with the tea bag...I love that tea-dyed color! Hoping for more Spring-y weather soon! Have a creative week dear!♥

Pamela Gerard said...

Oh -- very nice. Spring is here in SF -- 74 degrees. Too bad I much prefer cold weather.....and i prefer coffee to tea but tea is great for dye! Love the tag. Looks like you had fun making it.

Carol said...

Thanks for stopping my Elizabeth. It is so cold here this morning that everything was crunchy when I walked the dogs. A very short walk you can be sure and I was so bundled up could recognize me. I'm not getting around to visiting everyone this week as I just don't have the energy even if I am felling better physically I am emotionally drained at this point.

Jeanie said...

That placemat is so pretty! And I love how you included your new tag! Cheers!

Kelly said...

love the place mat and napkin! Very spring and festive. Good use of the tea bag. I'm drinking lots of tea lately. I hope to link up with you in the future. Creative BLessings! Kelly
