Can you believe it is almost 2011? Seems weird to even be typing the numbers 2011. We had a nice quite, drama free Christmas and we are all very thankful for that! This time of year is so busy for our family, we have a huge dinner theater at our church that ran for four days and sold 1600 tickets, it is always so much fun but can be very stressful! This year we had the added 'pleasure' of the stomach flu running through the cast and crew. YUCK! But as always God is good and took care of everyone! None of the guests had any clue that 9 cast and crew members were absent from the first two performances. Everyone is already looking forward to next year!
Today our family is going to visit my sweet sis-n-law and my wonderful mother-n-law, we will be ringing in the new year together!
December 26 was my 2 year blogging anniversary! This year I plan to have some giveaways and hope to be joining in on lots of FUN!

I pray all of you will have a happy, safe, healthy and FUN 2011!
Sip more tea and laugh more often is my motto for this New Year!

I have been working on craft show Items for Christmas.
The first picture you see is my fabric drip catchers they are
machine washable, the fun part is the more you wash and dry them the more
they look like a flower when you place them on the spout of your tea pot.
They save your linens from being spoiled when your teapot drips.
I have many colors and patterns.
$2.00 each including shipping.

This one of my favorite tea-cozies because I love snowmen!All the cozies are fully lined and have a grab tab on the top, the fabric lining
for this cozy is green with Christmas trees.

If you see something you feel you need to have please leave
a comment or send me an e-mail, I accept pay-pal.

Happy Fall Y'all!
I just LOVE all the colors!
So many pumpkins waiting for a home!
My friend and I went to Erie Shores Apple Orchard in MI.
I just adore fall don't you? I don't always like what comes after that but winter can be beautiful too! Even though I enjoy having all 4 seasons, I still miss TEXAS! Have a great week!

What a summer!

Wow today is 10-10-10! How weird!
I know I have been missing for awhile, so many things have happened here in my part of the world. We had a tornado in June that took 2 of our friends lives(6 lives were lost altogether). It also destroyed our high school my son was to graduate from the next day. This horrible force of nature also destroyed over 100 homes in our community and surrounding area including severe damage to our church where my husband is employed. This wonderful little town in which I live, moved into action to help those affected, our smaller church campus (It was not hit by the tornado) became a hub of supplies for the people in need and the workers that were helping others. We worked closely with the Red Cross and United Way to help those in need. Donations came from around the country! It was so amazing! People are so AWESOME! In the mist of tragedy we have seen so many blessings!
My son did walk across the stage to graduate, it was just in a different location. He is attending collage now 40 minutes from home. Now that things are getting back to a new normal, I hope to get back to blogging on a regular basis. I have a lot of things to share!
Thank you to all who have stuck with me!

Long awatied spring

The birds nest from last year

I don't know what they are. Any Ideas?

Spring is here! Yippeeee! My daffodils are blooming and my tulips are all up but have not bloomed yet! I also have some very pretty flowers; I don't know what they are called because they were here before we moved in. Our sweet little birds nest that was in the tree outside the kitchen was destroyed in September; I'm sad I won't get to watch a family of robins grow and fly away this Spring. I hope they rebuild it but it is not looking promising as of right now...sigh.

Tea parties are happening like crazy around here! I'm preparing for a bridal tea for 35 coming up (so excited!), then a tea party fashion show (can't wait!) and many more in the months to come! Looking forward to sharing these events with you!

A Heart Story

Hi Friends! Just wanted to share my funny heart story with you. I thought it fit because of Valentines day being tomorrow.

Did you ever wake up just feeling blue and your not sure why? Well on this particular day I woke up just 'sad'; maybe because I did not sleep well the night before. Anyway, I fixed my regular cup of black tea and gulped that down (which I don't usually do) but I did, sat down at the computer to check my e-mail and blogger dashboard (my usual routine). There was nothing much going on so I decided to make a whole pot of tea (the cup tasted so good!) hoping to cheer myself up. I went to my tea-cup cupboard and chose a sweet little cup with pretty pink roses on it my sis-in-law had found for me a year or so ago. It made me smile (so it was already working). I brewed a pot of my very favorite tea 'Marco Polo' a black tea with a delicious fruity flavor (another smile :) poured a hot steaming cup and back to my computer I went; again I kinda gulped it just tasted so good! I was all involved in reading an e-mail, went to take another drink and found out my cup was empty of tea! Upon closer inspection I looked into the tea cup and found....a heart shape at the bottom of my cup!!! A smile was on my face the rest of the day:)! Happy Valentine's Day everyone - hope you have a wonderful day!

Tea for a Princess

Hello my dear friends! Had a minute to share some photos of my latest tea~party, the birthday princess turned 7! They ate beautiful cupcakes they decorated themselves (with lots of icing and sprinkles)and made some teapot picture frames to take home along with with the pretty purse boxes of goodies. Mom provided a cupcake pinata that you break by pulling the strings (pretty cool huh?). The pretty princess and her guests all had a fabulous time!
