Bits of Joy

What joy to receive an unexpected package
from my forever tea friend Penny in the mail on Friday
after a most particularly stressful week.


Well you know I like me my Davids Tea!
The Spring Collection ~ a breath of fresh air ~ that's what it is indeed!
"Berry Poppins"
"ElderFlower Spritz"
"Melon Drop"
"Strawberry Fields"
"White Nectarine"
They all smell heavenly!


And then there is the "Cat Butt Coaster"
that I received from another sweet friend/coworker
last week for my birthday!
Thank you Kathy!
A tea coaster from Etsy that she ordered to match
the colors of Banjo.
Now how enjoyable is that?


Mmmmm....lovely tea
on a cute cat coaster...


Now that is truly enjoyable to me...


And when you want to tell the world to 'kiss it'?
Well...


just flip it.
Hence the name "Cat Butt Coaster". 


Thank you girls for bringing me
little bits of joy last week!!

Hugs!

Looking good! Hope your doing well its been a while. I don't get as much time as I used to to check in on all my friends sites.

Thank you for your visit, Catherine! I hope you are doing well.
Love your owl and the wise word :-)

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

okay, seriously, why can't I comment on every post you do?? I simply want to gush over your photography??

Carolynn Anctil said...

I just discovered David's Tea and my favourite, by far, is The Glow. I have to confess, some of them taste a little over the top with the artificial flavouring they add.

Incidentally, a thought for your teacup planter accent - you could put birdseed in it or water on hot days. :0))

I'm happy to report that I'm slowly beginning to get my strength back and would love to meet up for a coffee again, soon!

Much love,
Carolynn
