Tea Box

Today I am drinking a peach tea because I like the design on the wrapper and want to be able to use it in a collage or fill it with goodies and enclose in an etsy purchase.

It's such a cute little envelope!

It's one of several teas my mother included in a tea box she found at a garage sale.
The box was empty, but she refilled it for me and mailed it.
An early birthday gift she said.
My birthday is next month.
And speaking of birthays, it was Carole's this past weekend.
Stop over and wish her happy!

My blog has been reduced to tea posts.
If it were not for Tuesdays, you just might not hear from me at all!
(and occasionally you don't, even on a Tuesday!)
Busy, busy, busy!
Kids off from school a couple days a week for teacher's conferences,
garage sales,
a snake sighted in our downstairs bathroom,
a massive house that always needs cleaning
(and I can't find a maid who will work for free!)
and my etsy shop needs stocking.

My days have been full
and I don't have time to blog about it.
My computer runs too slow these days to keep up with my demands.
So I don't even try to use it sometimes,
except when I really need it!
Happy Tea Tuesday!

Gotta love those tea wrappers. That is one of the reasons I am having tea every day this coming week. Yours is fabulous, as is the gift your mom sent you.

And talk about SLOW computers. I am having a devil of a time getting my comments to post. Happy Tea, anyway.

The things we buy just for the packaging! I so can relate! But you were blessed to have your sweet mother send it to you. We do miss your posts. I'm almost as behind as you and I have no kids at home. Sweet to give the birthday shout out to Carole Down Under!

We do look at things totally different sometimes don't we. I love the tea box. I also put my assorted teas in a basket/box that has a lid. It keeps them all very organized, which helps early in the morning (4:30 am) LOL. Happy tea day.

Love that you chose that tea because you wanted to use the envelope in a collage!

I MISS YOU in Blogland but understand life gets in the way sometimes.

LOL! I'm a graphic designer who falls for the tricks I learned I art school. Yep, packaging gets to me, too.

Your mom is wonderful. :)
