Tea for two

Last week I came across a fun blog hop whose theme is tea cup Tuesday. I stayed for a while and discovered some lovely new blogs, like Edith’s Sous Mon Arbre and Terri’s Artful Affirmations, both absolute sensual treats of pinkness, baby ducks and all things girlie. I love it.

This morning Chloe had an early morning class at the university and then a three hour break. Perfect to come home for a nice cup of tea.

Now I noticed that on these hops a lot of the ladies are identifying the tea cups. Out of my collection of lovelies I chose a blue cobalt and gold tea cup by Aynsley and a similar one by Paragon.

I made us some Comforting tea by Aveda, (yes, the hair product people). It’s a fantastic mix of licorice root, peppermint and a touch of basil. I know it sounds a bit strange but the taste is out of this world.

So here we are, my tea for two story, one happy and warm child, one serene mother and the rest of the day ahead full of wonderful possibilities.

Linking to the hop on Artful Affirmations and Sous Mon Arbre above and also to my favorite TALU with this post because it’s raining and I’m remembering my English winter wonderland. 🙂

And don’t forget about my giveaway, still lots of time to leave me a hello.

    Isn’t it fun what they can do with marzipan?! Love how Chloe’s fingernail polish matches her teacup 🙂 And really love china cups, plates, patterns–one of my fav things. That tea sounds phenomenal–there’s a tea called “Throat Coat” that has similar ingredients and I drink it even if I’m not feeling sick…licorice root is yummy! Happy Tuesday Tea Day 🙂

Your little mice treats look so yummy, I have never come across anything like that here…..might have to go looking!!! What a beautiful daughter you have, how wonderful to share a cup of tea with her…..I love to do that with my daughter and her girls. It’s special xxxx

    You make me want to get out one of my teacups….I have a collection and a few of them look similar to yours! What a lovely way to enjoy your break! Oh…we have rain in northern Quebec…-40 last week and 7 today…Talk about extremes! Enjoy your tea and break out those teacups a bit more often…I think that I will too.

    Ooo! All of the things in the photos are like little gems! I love the marzipan and the lovely antique plates, cups and dishes. I don’t drink tea and it’s making me want a spot o’ tea!!
