Tea and Tags on Tuesday

Today I am having Ginger and Mandarin organic tea ...

along with a few lemon cookies from the gourmet shop at Marks & Spencer, a UK based department store.

My afternoon plans include tags and a bit of crochet.

Hope you are having a terrific day. For more Tea on Tuesday visit Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons. Friendship blessings, Tammy

I could go for a cup of tea and some cookies right about now. :)
Our evening plans include attending an Academic Award Ceremony at the school ~ Sarah is receiving an award. Hopefully Jim's work schedule enables him to go, he's been pulling some all-nighters.
Happy Tuesday,
Linda

I really like the photo with the cookies. It's wonderful to see cookies from around the world. And of course those tags with the flowers on then are incredible. Sounds like you have a full afternoon ahead of you, too. Happy Tea Tuesday.

I have never tried ginger. Can you believe that?! It's actually pretty hard to come by here in Guatemala. I have seen recipes on TV (oriental most of them) which include ginger. They look so yummy!, yet I have had them ginger-less. They say it's spicy (?), and very strong. Someday...
have a wonderful Tuesday!

Those tags are very sweet!

Dearest Tammy,

You are lucky with your Marks & Spencer! That tea I would love to share with you... Smart for making lavender hearts out of a stained shirt! Lovely flower cards that you crochet. Busy as always.

Lots lof love,

Mariette

You are having a very sunshiney tea break!! Your tags are so sweet! Crochet is something that completely eludes me .... I even tried it this last weekend with my youngest daughter. She sooo badly wants to learn how and I am all thumbs!!

The tea sounds yummy (I like ginger-- it's so peppery and feels good on a sore throat). Your tags are adorable. I know how to crochet adn have lost of materials, but it never occures to me to craft with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

No tea post for me today (I am STILL under reconstruction!), but I am visting everyone else today (I NEEDed a break from cardboard boxes and dust!)

val said...

terrific idea with those tags.....I may have to steal it! So it is 91 in Slidell today......good grief, where is SPRING? I love all the yellow in your post today, so refreshing...and that yarn! Oh my, as wonderful as the cookies look, I think I want the yarn even more! But maybe that's because I just ate a couple cookies.......

Have a wonderful day and even better tomorrow!

Hi Tammy

Hello my sweet chicky! I know you think I fell of my side of the earth. Just have been going through some stuff. You know me... I am either all in or all out! I am sitting on my deck, drinking a ale, eating pitas and hummus, something is missing.... YOU!! And the boys... last time you called, I don't know why we lost our connection. I have a new phone number. Ernie's mom died last month, that was way harder than I thought it would be. My weight is sky rocketing. Have lots more to tell you. But for now...even though I don't keep in touch like I should , you are always in my heart and I love you!! Missing you so much right now. I will have a ale for you!

What a wonderful way to spend your afternoon. The tags are too cute for words. I am not going to ask if you had a good afternoon, as I know you well enough to know that tea, a sweet treat, and crochet are all you need to put a smile on your face.
Have a great day!!!!!!

Thinking of you!!!
