Tea and Lemon

It's Tuesday, so once again I'm celebrating Tea Tuesday with Kimmie and the gals whose links you will find on Kimmie's sidebar.

Today I couldn't wait to get into this tea. It smelled so wonderful even before I got it out of the bag.

So what's the reference to lemon you ask? Well, it's the lemon colored handmade paper, pulled and drying on a 24" X 36" (61 cm X 91.44 cm) screen. In this heat,

the paper should be dry about the same time as the blueberry sun tea is ready to drink. Have an awesome day everyone and see you at Kimmie's.

Today's blog is a spin-off of a commercial web site. It is called Teatime Chatters and is run by Yorkshire Teas. After reading their blog, which includes photos from all over the world taken by their buyers, I learned I had missed the Great British Tea Party, which is not a national British event, but one sponsored to raise money for a children's foundation. If nothing else, it's fun to see photos from all over the globe and it's my blog pick this lovely Tea Tuesday.

That paper color looks awesome! What did you use to get that color? Paint? Re-inkers? special dye? Food coloring?

I've heard loose tea leaves tastes best. I can't wait to see a project made with your very own paper.
Sorry you had trouble commenting on my blog. It was either a blogger glitch OR you tried commenting when I was editing the post. I edited my last post 3 times. I always look to see how the posts look live and I kept finding misused words or lost of empty space between photos or paragraphs. After the 3rd edit I said no more and didn't look. Enough was enough!!
Happy Tuesday,
Teresa aka Tess

thank you for your lovely words on my blog!

actually, I have been here before - I admired your June dress and the discussion about the give away proved my belief that there should be no conditions to win things.
so thank you for your inspiration and see you soon. :)
