Tea on Tuesday

This is why I changed my new blog to Wordpress - because of blogger issues with my new camera- this is a photo that was taken normally, not rotated or fooled with in any way - and this is how blogger sees fit to show it....WHY????
SORRY, did not mean to start tea with whining!!LOL

today's tea comes in a lovely tin box. It is made by Ineeka
This little handled tea bags are called brew tache'
The top is sealed, and just rips apart, so you can pour the water over/thru' the tea leaves.

This Darjeeling is a combo of  black tea and calendula- yummy!

Depending on the size of the mug/cup, the little handles will fold out and fit the opening. Very cool!!

Also discovered in Fulks Run Grocery, was this "organic" lunch bag/tote -  furoshiki style.

Had to buy it - I wrote a post a while back(see link HERE), on furoshiki folding - a "green" Japanese method of cloth folding. I have a stack of beautiful Japanese cloths, given to me by a well traveled friend (thanks, Teresa and for finding my blog post for me!), that I use and fold, and refold,  to make gorgeous little totes.

                                               This one is sewn, so it is permanently folded.

Coincidentally, the same day I came home with this, I received my latest issue of Pasticcio Quartz- produced and written by Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn. --and inside was an article on furoshiki  !!
                                                                   The stars align................

And, even better, also in that  'zine -an article on Seth Apter's latest book- The Winds of Change  written with Roxanne Stout

So, here I sit, at my dining room table, inhaling the scent of the last buddleia/butterfly bush blossoms of the season, enjoying my tea and Pasticcio !!!

            Please join us for tea every Tuesday- visit Patty and Kimmie for a list of other tea lovers!!!

                                               self portrait.......thru' the looking glass(es)

                                                      watching time march on
                                                           all too quickly
                                                 sometimes it is better not to look
                                                                just live

a meeting of the minds
   harbingers of spring
     waiting for the thaw
        dismal little creatures
            bane of my existence
