T Stands For Updates Galore


OK, galore might be a bit of an overstatement, but I do have a few things to get out of the way.  First and foremost, I thought I would be out of town tomorrow (Tuesday) all day.   However, I just learned like three minutes before it is time to post, that my appointment has been changed to Thursday.  That means I must leave my house no later than 6 a.m. and won't be home until very, very late Thursday night. I'm trying to rewrite as little of this paragraph as possible so the post will go live on time.

Second, I need to apologize to Sharon (Foxy Stamping).  I told her, after she called me about the time I got really sick, that I would let everyone know that she was grateful for all the kindness and love you showed after she broke both her wrists.  She hopes to join us again very soon.  I actually forgot last week because I was trying to get the post ready with very little time before it was supposed to go live.  Please forgive me Sharon.  I just wasn't running on all four cylinders.

Remember me telling you last week about the place we stopped to look at chimineas?  When I was going through old photos I wanted to delete

I found these that I failed to share last week.  Feel free to go to the link if you missed last week's post.

Maybe Lisca wouldn't have been so confused had I managed to share these

chimineas, urns, strawberry pots, and such they kept on the grounds.  I KNEW it was unlike me not to show the name of the place we stopped and the chimineas, too.  And yes, it was as hot as it looked, too.

Right before Christmas, I stopped by the Oriental Market and bought a few oriental gifts for friends.

I couldn't pass up these coffee flavored egg rolls for myself, though.  Yes, they were delicious and not too sweet.  They definitely tasted like coffee.  They tasted like coffee beans, actually.  I thought they were fitting since we are still celebrating the 15 days of Chinese New Year or Spring Festival.

Now it's your turn.  I'm sure by now you know the "rules," but in case you don't, please show something drink related. It can be photos, a place you visited, movies, tea cups, coffee mugs, a tea or coffee service, postcards, books, magazines, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, ATCs, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink.  Please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.   Please link only your T post and not your blog in general.  Old photos are acceptable because they may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday, and not just this year.


Also, I would be remiss if I didn't remind you to dig up your Second on the 2nd. It can be any post, any genre, any length, as long as it's been published sometime in the past.

Hope Sharon is soon back with us! Those coffee rolls look good, yummy, they would be nice with a cup of coffee, although it's too late from coffee today. Happy T Day, Valerie

Eileen Bergen said...

I won't bore you with my (great) chiminea story again, Elizabeth. These photos look just like the roadside stands we see here in Mexico. I must admit that you have some beautiful specimens there. Sometimes ours are very basic.

I'm so relieved that you're getting back on track and are over the awful bug you had. Those coffee flavored egg rolls look very tasty. Even though I don't drink coffee, I love mocha flavor in dessets. Odd, right?

Happy T-day! Eileen xx

CJ Kennedy said...

Glad to hear Sharon will be back soon. My Eldest would enjoy coffee flavored egg rolls. Not me, unless they were chocolate! Happy T Day!

Sandra Cox said...

That's quite a selection and the rolls look yummy.
Hope you are feeling grand.

Wow I have never seen so many choices of chimneys in one spot-great place to shop for one.
Hubs would love those coffee egg rolls. when we lived in Illinois and would visit Larry's Mom in the suburbs we would stop in the Chinese and Japanese markets-love those stores.
Happy T hugs Kathy

Divers and Sundry said...

I like the choices in chiminea size. So many options! That coffee-flavored treat looks like it'd be perfect. I'll have to check our Chinese market and see if they have them there. Happy T Day!

Poor Sharon. Wrists are hard to break with all those bones connecting. Hope she is healed up soon. And wow, that is sure a lot of garden items. I don't think I have ever seen quite so many all together. And coffee egg rolls sound interesting. They are perfect for Lunar New Year celebration too. Hope you have a super T day. Hugs-Erika

Linda Kunsman said...

Oh my, poor Sharon! I didn't know she broke her wrists:(:( Hope she heals well and soon. Glad you're doing better Elizabeth.
Those coffee egg rolls sound like something I would love- not too sweet with good coffee flavor! Thanks for sharing, good luck on Thursday, and happy T day!

Iris Flavia said...


Both wrists broken, oh, that sounds really bad - to a quick healing!
Oh, I think my Brother would spend a whole day at that place, they look for chimineas, too (well, one, but they can never ever decide).
"Not too sweet" - reminds me of a "diet fruit cake" I bought Hubby for his Birthday when we travelled Australia. I thought, might not be too sweet. HA. It was too sweet even for him ;-)
A happy T-day! Thank you for hosting.

Love those chimineas and would love some in my garden.xx

Anne (cornucopia) said...

I'm running late Elizabeth, so I'll be back later to leave comments for you and everyone else.

Let's Art Journal said...

Wow, so many chimineas to choose from and they all look so amazing 😁. Your coffee egg rolls are a great way to celebrate the Chinese New Year and T Day too! Take care and wishing you a very happy T Day! Hugs, Jo x

Jeanie said...

Elizabeth, I would love to send you a little care package but I'm not sure where/how to send it. I think you have my email (It should come on my comment notifications and if it doesn't I'll post it for you). If you would send me your posting info, I'll pull something together. Meanwhile, I hope all goes well with your long day.

Lisca said...

Thank you so much for showing me the chimineas. Now that I see them, I recognize them and I must say I have seen them advertised here too. I don't know anyone that has one and I assume they are used as a barbeque with a chimney. Hence the name chiminea. They look bright and colourful and you are the proof that they attract people into the place.
Thank you for passing on Sharon's message. I'm sure she will forgive you as she knows you have been ill.I hope her wrists recover soon and we will see her again here at the T-party.
Oh yumm, those coffee flavoured rolls look very nice. Although I am not a great coffee drinker, I love anything coffee flavoured. Thank you. I'll have two if I may...
Wishing you a speedy recovery (although you sound a lot better already) and a happy T-Day,
Lisca

I love seeing all those chimineas and urns all lined up - such great colours gleaming in the sunshine (not enough of that round here at the moment!). Hope all goes well with your appointment on Thursday.

RO said...

I need to see if I can find some of those egg rolls here. I don't like the veggie kinds, but my goodness, I can get into these for sure.(lol) Hope you're feeling much better these days. I've been worried about you. Hugs, RO

Nancy said...

Oh, they've got chimineas all right!! What a display. Those treats look very good.

Divers and Sundry said...

This is my second week of getting an error page when I go to https://www.craftyscorpio.blogspot/ "This site can’t be reached. https://www.craftyscorpio.blogspot/ refused to connect." I'm not having trouble with any of the other links.

Advice?

Krisha said...

Bright, cheerful chimineas all in a row. They do make for a pretty picture.
Happy T-day

J said...

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your visit and link, not sure why it went wrong before, not sure if it’s because I’m using my iPad! Or just me, ha,ha,
Just popping in while I have half an hour, I love the chimineas, ours is very different , they would be a lovely addition to the garden.
Happy T Day

Sandra said...

Hope you are doing well.
Hugs

Meggymay said...

A late call in tonight. I liked the photos today and those lovely chiminea pots. I hope Sharon isn't in to much pain, it must be aweful to have both wrists broken.
Yvonne xx

Anne (cornucopia) said...

I like all of the different chimineas. (Last week I did wonder why there weren't any photos of them.) That coffee dessert you got looks delicious. Happy T-Day!

pearshapedcrafting said...

Goodness! What a lot of chimineas! It does look hot!
Anything coffee flavoured would be my choice too - I always used to go for the coffee flavoured chocolates in variety boxes!
Good news that Sharon will be better soon!
Hope you get on OK on Thursday!
Hugs, Chrisx

Sami said...

Wow, quite a huge choice of chemineas there Elizabeth.
Because I don't drink coffee, I usually avoid anything with coffee flavour, but I'm sure they would be nice :)
I hope your friend Sharon is recovering well from her broken wrists, how awful, both of them!
