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.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 neighborhood horse came over and passed in our pen. The men all had to get their tractors and all the neighbors came over to help. It was super sad as the horse was well loved by many children and adults.
I have a card to share as well. My grandsons made the background with alchol markers, and I recycled a Christmas card they received from my Sister-in-law. The card was so cute, we had to recycle it.
My understanding of horses is really dim. Do they really just roam around from house to house like a bunch of teenagers? I had no idea. Very interesting. And do they just suddenly drop dead? Amazing.ReplyDelete

Mae, I don't know if it is common for them to roam around like teenagers but they do on our street. The two properties next door are fenced and they have horses and all the horse just jump the fences and spend all their time together - they are very social (all are girls).Delete
Those horses and the mule named Nancy are handsome. I'd almost take a donkey myself as they really have some wonderful expressions on their faces. And I love how they visit from place to place too. It must be nice to be able to do that, but so sad about the one that passed. I've heard that are are actual horse whisperers who can learn about the horses lives. Do you know if that is true? And that is a wonderful tea cup photo too. Have a great T day Nancy. Hope 2022 is going well for you. hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Erika, I have heard that too. I have heard there are classes for people who have the gift even! We stayed at a farm in Tennessee (bed and breakfast) and she could so some really awesome communication with horses and used them to help people with anxiety and other issues. Amazing stuff.Delete
So sad about losing one of the horses-but how fun they come to visit for treats. The photo of the tea in the lovely cup with the backdrop of those lamps should be in a magazine-or even a tea advertisement-really beautiful. Going through things yesterday I spent time getting all of my teas in containers and in one spot-many of them are quite old as they get forgotten or buried somewhere-so I plenty of tea choices now smiles Happy T hugsReplyDelete
and I loved the card-hugsDelete
I'm sorry about the horse's death. So sad.ReplyDelete
Having such friendly neighborhood horses must make for a happy neighborhood :)
Happy T Tuesday!
I wish we had horses as neighbors, but so sad to have one pass away in your midst...ReplyDelete
And oh what a really sweet card you made- I love everything about it. Happy T day!
I LOVE the tea cup your daughter shared. It is beautiful. She has a good eye for thrifting.ReplyDelete
So sad to read about the horse. Had to laugh your neighbor gives your horse better treats, though. That is an absolutely adorable card. Thanks for sharing your art, the horse stories, and your daughter's tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.
Hi Nancy, how fun to have horses visiting you! Sounds like fun! Love the cup your daughter bought, it's beautiful! And the card is gorgeous! Have a great week, hugs, ValerieReplyDelete
How sad about the horse, that must have been a shock. I do love the photo of the horses and your daughter's tea cup. The recycled card is so cute too. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xxReplyDelete
Sorry about the horse and how fun to be able to have that view in your own backyard! Love the shots of the tea in the pretty glass and your card is just darling too! TSFReplyDelete
The mug is really beautiful.ReplyDelete
Sad about the horse. Great card, I wish you a happy T-Day, hugz
A fun card with a fabulous background made by your grandson.ReplyDelete
I love your daughters thrift store mug.
How fun about you and your neighbor naming animals after each other. Very sad about the horse passing in your pen.
Happy Tea Day,
Oh, I love that there is a Nancy the Mule! LOL Your recycled card is wonderful, and the perfect card to post with your story of the horses. Happy t day.ReplyDelete
Having horses in your backyard sounds quite cool - I only have the neighbors' cats... However, a dead horse is sad. - The card is really cute, especially the dog.ReplyDelete
That's so sad about the horse but still amazing to have them in your backyard. I can see why you love that card :)ReplyDelete
Tea's a funny drink, I'm British but my dad used to make such strong tea and used loose leaf that it made me a coffee drinker. I do drink the odd cup of tea but relatively weak :)
A beautiful cup of tea Nancy, such a beautifully staged photograph as well. How lovely to have the horses gather in your back yard, although rather sad that one died - we used to live in the New Forest in Hampshire and the ponies would wander into the garden and come and tap on the windows in the winter! Your card is fabulous, a super background and lovely image - a great joint effort with your grandsons.ReplyDelete

Oh I never knew horses did that. I should have known as they are social animals and live in groups in the wild. Haha, I can just picture these 'girls' gossiping about where the best treats are in the neighborhood. lol.ReplyDelete
Nancy the mule is looking good (I assume that is her in the picture).
I love your daughter's thrift store mug. She has good taste. And the glimpse we have of her bedroom looks good too. (Our daughter has a similar taste)
What a cute card. Yes, that one definitely needed a mention.
Awwww, that is sad about the horse passing. I have a connection to horses but have never owned one. You are so lucky to have them all around you. I really like the tea cup and the card is too cute. Have a good day today.ReplyDelete
Your daughter's photo is so beautiful, she clearly knows how to stage that cup - even I might be tempted to try some tea again (I won't - it makes me ill)ReplyDelete
What sad story about the horse, but the idea of those horses causing havoc did make me smile(sorry!)
Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
I love Allie's teacup, and it's a great photo. The horses and mule are gorgeous, and lovely that they can spend time together like that. Sad to hear one of them passed suddenly.ReplyDelete
I love the recycled card, such a cute image.
