Tea in My Newest Mug

My friend Elizabeth has a linky party called T Stands for Tuesday where she and others share drink related posts and creations. Everyone has the coolest recipes, fun creations (you can share past creations as well), pictures of fun coffee shops, etc.  I have played once and have wanting to join in again so here I am.  

Here is a new handmade pottery mug I bought at a local shop - I love it.  It has some Breakfast in Paris tea steeping in it waiting to for the pumpkin squares to cool....

HERE is a link to the pumpkin square recipe - I leave out the coconut milk and add in a bit more spices and one more egg. 

Sharing a past journaling page with a drink as well from 2019 - sitting on my daughter's porch looking over the water thinking about Heaven and how beautiful it will be. 

So glad I made it to T stands for Tuesday again!  Thanks for visiting!

    I'm going to have to look for and try that tea- just for the name of it alone:):) Thanks for sharing the recipe and your lovely tea mug as well. Happy T day!

  4. Love your new mug :) It's good to hear we can alter recipes and that they turn out fine. I'm always skittish about it. Happy T Tuesday!

  5. I adore your new mug, including the shape and color, but fear I'll be singing that song all day long, now. I want some of that Breakfast in Paris tea, too.

    Your journal page is gorgeous. Heaven and a cup of sunshine go so well together. It's beautiful and I enjoyed reading it when I enlarged it.

    Thanks for joining us and sharing your recipe, your amazing journal page, and your beautiful new mug and tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  8. I'm glad you are back Nancy for T Nancy. I like your mug. I love homemade mugs. Of course my would say sweet home New Hampshire, which isn't really a saying. Up here we say "In the 603", our area code. Of course this one is perfect for you. And your pumpkin squares look yummy too. I think the tea and a square on the back porch would be fantastic. Hope you're having a wonderful T day.

  9. Beautiful, thoughtful Journal page! ((nice mug too)

  10. Beautiful journal page and love your new Tea mug ♥

    Happy Belated Tea Day

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
