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!



  1. Such a beautiful post! Loving your new mug, the inscription and colour are so cheery 😀. Your page is fabulous too, loving the cup of sunshine! Have a wonderful week and sending you Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  3. what a beautiful and thoughtful journal page Nancy!
    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 ♥

  12. Heaven is a wonderful thing to reflect on. It makes me long to be there instead of on this earth. Your cup of tea and Pumpkin square sound like the perfect accompaniment to your quite time.
    Happy Belated Tea Day

  14. Ohhh I absolutely love your new mug. The color is fabulous. Your art is beautiful as well.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
