T Stands For gifts from far and farTher


For those of you who observe Labor Day, I hope you had a wonderful three day holiday.

I received several gifts this past week and want to share these with you for T today.  After all, these are all T day participants.  From back to front, I received gifts from Dianne, Eileen, and Chrissie.  Gosh it's great to be able to add links again!

Here is my bounty: back left, Dianne; front left, Eileen; right, Chrissie.

Since I oohed and aahed over this incredible creation Chrissie made for Try it on Tuesday, she sent it to me.  Here are nine beautiful photos from her garden and nine wonderful positive sayings. 

When turned over, nine more of these beauties appeared.    I probably should have removed the ATC sized cards from the plastic holder, because the lighting played havoc with the photos.

Eileen sent me a lovely note, a fabulous ATC, and tons of stickers and die cuts.  You'll see those soon on my blog.  Unfortunately, Eileen's envelope took awhile to get here, because it had been delivered to the wrong address and had to be forwarded.

Dianne sent me a gorgeous handmade card

along with quite a few tags and an ATC.

So what am I serving up for T this week?  This beautiful hand drawn English rose cup and saucer filled with my favorite drink and friendship.

Before I go over the rules for playing, I want to thank these three incredible artists from the depths of my heart.  I am so grateful for all of you and your generosity.  I feel so undeserving.

Now it's your turn to share your T post for the week.  Any post, any genre, any subject matter is acceptable as long as you include a drink, a mug, a cup, or any semblance of them.  Then link below and Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.  Bleubeard would like to remind your that photos may be taken at any time, not just on Tuesday.

Re your comment about the little boy on the old fashioned scooter: That is one of our grandsons (Daniel, 6 yrs old). Scooters are all the rage in UK and most kids have got one.

I enjoyed seeing all your lovely mail art and goodies, Elizabeth. How perfect that Dianne painted a tea cup, which you could use for today's party! Chrissie's flower photo display is wonderful.

Now that you can add links again, could you do me a favor and add "/blog/" to the end of the link to me. Thank you for sharing it, BTW.

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
