A Cheery RED Tea Tuesday

Today is a chilly, wind-howling-outside day,

so I am drinking hot black tea by the mug full

(working on my second pot)

and dreaming of the cherry pecan muffins

I had at Amy's house yesterday

(I supplied the dried Michigan cherries and Missouri pecans).

I've also got the color RED on my mind.

RED dispells the January blues.

So, no surprise, it's the color I am happily filling my etsy shop with.
You can't have a bad time on a weekend get away if you pack red luggage.
This bon-bon of a figurine looks good enough to eat!

I sold out of these playing cards within a week (12 at a time),

but you may use this photo if you like

(sorry, it's low resolution, so won't print super crisp, but hey, it's free!

And so darned cute!)

Maybe a beautiful book will dispell your blues?


Aha! The sun is making a brave showing through the clouds.

I'm off for a tea refill and photographing more red things (in the cheery sunlight) for my shop.

BAck up to 82 degrees here, so most days it's iced tea for me. Still like my hot tea early in the morning though. Love all your red! Red always gets my attention.Your post made me think of a friends red, black and white quilt she made. Happy tea day.

I think I may have to make some pecan muffins with cherries of some kind in them!!! It's really becoming a craving. The red stuff is great, too! Happy Tuesday!

It turned extra cold here today, too. I think we've been lucky to have such a mild winter. No snow here, not even a dusting. Love your red color palette this week. That book with the red cover is gorgeous.
