New Things for Tuesday Tea

Today I'm joining Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons for Tea on Tuesday with
a favorite new tea (rooibus, cinnamon and ginger).
 A new cake recipe found at The English Kitchen.
(The recipe called for fresh cherries, which I didn't have.
But I did have frozen mixed berries and blueberries.)
 And my new pillow.
(It's the first time I've actually hooked together granny squares to make anything
so I'm pleased with the results.)
Have a terrific Tuesday.

Dear Tammy,
That's a gorgeous pillow! Fantastic work!! :)

Your treat looks yummy, I always seem to read these posts mid-afternoon when I'm taking a break at work and feeling hungry.

Everything this a delight! The tea, the blueberry/cherry tart, and the lovely pillow.

As always, you inspire me. I have some ginger crystal tea in my cupboard. I'm going to go and make myself a cup.

Dearest Tammy,
The Rooibos tea from South Africa is a very special taste and healthy too.
Congrats with your new pillow, looks very nice.
Yeah, fresh cherries are here now abundantly. Wonder where they have to come from for your area... flown in I guess.
Love to you,

Mariette

kimmie said...

Hmmmm - I LOVE rooibos tea with spices! It makes the best "chai" tea with a little milk and sugar - yum!

Cherries are in season here ... But they get eaten quicker than I could ever sneak them into a cake (lol)

Sucrette said...

Oh I love the colors of your crocheted pillow! I think it matches perfectly your fabulous interior full of travelling treasures :)
Big kisses

Your Granny Square pillow is lovely Tammy and your cake looks very tempting!

I also enjoyed your post above with your crocheted starfish...I am smitten with all of the treasures of the sea

stay cool...whenever I think of complaining about our heat here in the Wash DC area I think of you sweltering and baking

Happy rest of the week to you and yours

We're loving cherries right now, and that cake looks scrumptious. Thanks for the link!

What a beautiful pillow - I really like the colours.

Catherine said...

That tea sounds like it would be a nice pick me up, perfect for these wintery days we're having here. Love your pillow and the colours in your granny squares. I bet you smile each time to you at what you've created.

val said...

you did a lovely job on the pillow...it is gorgeous!

Sam I Am...... said...

Wow! What a great Tuesday you had. I love it all. The tea looks delicious and just the name Revitalize sounds enticing plus who doesn't like ginger and cinnamon.
The tea cake looks yummy too. I'll have to go take a look at her recipe. I love berries of all kinds. Well, except poisonous, of course! LOL!
You did an amazing job on that pillow! I just adore it. Are the granny squares on the back too? I've always wondered how you finish them? Do you sew fabric for the back? Anyway, it is REALLY cute! Love the colors you chose too. Happy Tueday...belated, as usual.
