Not Your Average Cuppa & Blog-o-versary

Hi Girls!

OoOoOh, lookie what I found at the local Barnes & Noble!
Did you guys know that Barnes sold these? Is this new? I don't shop there, I'm more of a Borders girl. I'm bummed that they're going out of business... boo.

It's the little things that make me happy. These mugs are huge and hold a lot of tea (or ice cream!) That makes me very happy. I'd intended to treat myself to one of these little beauties, but I couldn't decide, so I solved the problem by getting both. Yeehaw!

I'm not one who's too big on designer labels, but I really do love Cath Kidston's stuff. I find myself attracted to the bright, bold, happy colors that she uses. Everything is pretty and sweet, without seeming forced or saccharine. Yup, yup. I dig it!

There's a new catalog available too, did you know? And did you know that they'll mail you one... for free?
True story. Click here for deets.

(I really want one of these, so cute!)

♥♥...and in other news...♥♥

Today's my blog-o-versary! Two years ago today I hit "publish" on my first post. Oh-da-lolly, a lot has changed around here since those first days, but some things haven't changed a bit! I'm still in love with all things tea, and I'm still a Tea Consultant (apart from my full time job in the construction industry), although for another company these days, sadly, Let's Do Tea closed it's doors in December 2009. Happily, I'm now a consultant for Tealightful Treasures! I don't think I've mentioned it here on my blog before, but I totally should because the company is tea-rrific and offers such wonderful variety of tea and treats to go along with your tea. I'll have to blog about that soon. It's good stuff!

It's been so nice getting to know so many of you, and building real friendships. Creative bloggers, be they artists, embroiderers, crafters, quilters, knitters, are the most amazing, generous and encouraging people on the planet. And speaking of the planet, we are everywhere! It thrills me to no end when I get comments from people so far away! Australia (hi Suzi!) Israel (hi Keren!) Great Britain (hi Gill!) it's neat that our big wide world is made a little smaller when you get to share what you love with like minded peeps from around the world!

 Do you think blogging can be a hobby? How bout blog hopping? I think so, it's one of my favorite things to do online. Gotta be careful, one hour can easily turn into 2, or 3 or 10...hehehe... I love poking my head into blogs, there are so many insanely talented folks out there. Constant inspiration is always at your fingertips, only a click away. Love it.

Tomorrow is Friday (can I get a woohoo??) and I'm excited because my niece, Ana, is coming home from college for spring break. She'll only be here for a week, so we gotta make the moments count.
Have a great weekend, lovelies!

The gift shop I work in here in the UK sells Cath Kidston and it's very difficult not to keep buying it.

Hi Lisa (waving from Australia)...and happy blogaversary to you too! I so love reading what you're up to, but had no idea there was even such a thing as a tea consultant! You definitely need to share more...I'm intrigued :) I also love Cath Kidston, which is probably no big surprise...polkadots, red and aqua, florals...what's not to love? I wonder if they would send a catalogue to Australia?
Blogging really has been a blessing...I am thrilled to call you my friend xxx

Your new mugs are really pretty and a nice size too. Too bad some wouldn't show up at Marshall or Ross. :-)

The quilted table runner is lovely - great colors.

Happy blogiversary.
