All Things Sweet
A daughter's tea cup
I went poking around and found this pretty tea/coffee cup for tea today. It is rainy and a dreary day, I'll need some company to cheer me up and I even found a second cup, won't you join me for tea today?
Sweet but not home baked
This is the first I've seen these pretty oreo cookies. Yes they are out for the holidays and grandpa loves them. Good job they are only out once a year, lol.
Sweet Red Hatter Jewellery
I had plenty of requests for Red Hatter Memorabilia. Scrapbooking, seaglass, wire wrapping and necklaces. I've made a red beaded necklace to go with this and plan to put it together today. I attached an incense bottle just in the event the Red Hatter party is having too much fun and someone needs to be brought back, sweet.
Sweet new wire wrapped seaglass
Recently I sat at my craft table and played for a bit. This is my new friend, she is blue today and after we had coffee she was a little wirely, not wrapped so tight - if you know what I mean, all in fun.
This necklace is another I've created with found objects. I love to create and I'm imagining this to be the tree of life, with the larger butterfly up-top as the teacher for the wee one learning as it grows into something beautiful with wee little bits of seaglass throughout it's wings.
Sweet gumball seeds
If you are anything like me and step on one of these you would think there is nothing sweet about them. The gumball tree can reach heights of 40 metres, 131 feet tall. Spiny fruit, that contains numerous seeds and is all covered in prickly woody armatures, possibly to attach to the fur of an animal. The tree is classified as hardwood and is the last tree to leaf in the Spring and the last of the trees to drop its leaves in the Fall, with a multiple of colours.
I collected a bunch of these in the driveway and my son-in-law looked at me and calmly said, "what are you doing to do with that?" I wanted to just take pictures of them, but somehow by the tone of his voice I got the impression that these were used as weapons between him and his younger brother and he might have thought I was walking towards him ready with one in my hand and another 20 or so rolled up in the front of my t-shirt. I just thought they were interesting, they have pinchers like an earwig does. Do you have earwigs where you are? I can remember the years between 1985 and 87 they were everywhere in Ontario by the millions. So bad that we designed these two boards and took the rip saw and made a channel down the long length of the board. Placed one on top of the other and put them aroud the yard. Each morning we would go out and you could hear the neighbours clapping their pieces of boards together over top a gallon pail collecting the early morning earwigs. Earwigs liked to hide in cool, dark and damp places. Nothing sweet about an earwig.
Yes, my glasses are sweet and I'm getting use to them being new and all. I went from a single engine to a triple loaded pair and they have been playing tricks on me.
Won't you join me in the tasting of tea and never mind the crumpets, they are rather a cake that could do nothing more than pinch you from behind. Come join in the fun and visit Terri over at Artful Affirmations for tea today.
My second cup I'll be joining Sandi over at Rose Chintz Cottage where she is hosting Tea Cup Tuesday. When you have a chance come by and sit a spell, meet some tea folks.
Kind words are like honey -- sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Our Heavenly Father as we wander about and learn all that is sweet in this world, let us be reminded.
