Summer Tea 2013

This summer has just flown by AGAIN!
Here is a tea party I created a couple of weeks ago
for a dear friend.
This is the third year for this outdoor extravaganza.
You see, my dear friend is 75 years young and has been battling
ovarian cancer for almost 4 years. 
Every year she calls this her going away "Tea", 
a tea party for her friends and family to remember.
She has the most amazing attitude of anyone I 
have ever met!  
We set the tea for 50, plan the entire year,
sew napkins, decorate hats and hunt for special
We met 5 years ago at HER yard sale!  I bought 14
antique hats and a couple of hat stands. We became
instant friends, exchanged phone numbers and
I have been BLESSED by her friendship
ever since! 
You never know who God will put in your path.
Don't ever let age or circumstances guide your way.
Keep an open mind and an open heart; you just never 
know what God has in store for you! 
Have a Tea-riffic day!

Tea with Marie

Hello my dear friends! 
So much has been going on in my life
since my last post. 
The funny thing is, blogging is on
my mind every day. I am taking pics all the 
time (just in case I get a chance to blog.) 
So today I had a minute to say 'Hey... thinking of you!
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful cup of 
Tea with someone you love!

Tea on Tuesday Spring Bargains

 Just bought this teacup at Goodwill for a $1.50
not only because of the price but because I 
liked it!
 It is Royal Albert, but I don't know anything else
about it yet.

I don't usually buy cups that don't have saucers
but I just fell in love with these at .75 each

I think 2 of them will now hold my paint brushes
and glue sticks for my mini glue gun, and sit on 
my new art desk (a place of honor lol).
The yellow flower one reminds me of 
Spring....I will be using that one tomorrow.
I really can't wait for Spring!
Happy Tea~Day!

Sooo pretty and a steal of a deal!
Tea and Trinkets.....a good day!
Hope your day is a
GOOD one too!

What is a Kindred Spirit?

What is a Kindred Soul/Spirit?

Here is the defintion:
Also known as a kindred soul, a kindred spirit is one who shares certain beliefs, values, or interests with another person. For example, if two people say they are kindred spirits, it means they have certain similarities. By the definition of the words that make up the saying, the two people have a likeness that forms a relationship or association between them. Other factors, such as similarities in age and gender, can help make a kindred spirit relationship stronger, but they don’t have to exist for two or more people to be kindred souls. Likewise, a kindred spirit relationship isn’t limited to one between two people, and can exist among larger entities like groups and organizations. 

Do you have someone/group of people in your life that fits that description?  Are they your online friends or people you see frequently?  Would you say that person is your spouse or other half?  I have been giving this some serious thought because I think it is really important to have someone in your life that shares that creative side of you. Someone that encourages you to step outside the box, move beyond your normal range of things and is doing the same thing.  Have you done anything crazy creative lately (something you have seen on Pinterest or another blog) and thought, "I would love to do that"? 
 Because of blogging for 6 years, Flicker, Pinterest, Yahoo Groups, online classes and so many other sources, I have found some Creative Kindered Spirits, some of them I do not know very well but still think -wow I could really hang out with them!
I hope you have found some wonderful friends/group that you feel that way about because it is just so important to your creative soul.
                                                  Have an amazing day!
