Setting up shop

or home as the case may be....



This piece has graced a wall in my house for years,  but now it truly has found a place in our new family room.  The piece was done by Kathy and I was so happy finding it fit the space so perfectly both in colors and size.  This is also a room guests use, so I hope this continues to bring warmth to all those who come into our home.


Last week I found a box on the front porch which was not expected.  Being in a small town has increased my online ordering for supplies and other things, but this box wasn't from any of my orders.  I opened it to find Lisa sent a beautiful housewarming gift.  Lydia is a wonderful addition to my teapot collection.  This is a shape is one not previously part of my collection.  In addition to the pot are two pouches of tea, Holiday Spice Black Tea and Indian Spiced Chai.  These will be enjoyed during our cold winter nights.

Leaving friends and family behind on the east coast has been hard, but finding a place for each has been wonderful.  One thing we didn't have to leave behind is our Tina.  She didn't come with us on the first trip, but DH did bring her out when he made a special trip out with my best china and glassware about 2 weeks ago.  The kids are especially happy that she's come but I think Ms. Tina and I will return to our quality time while everyone is out of the house.  To welcome her home, we did pick up a new cozy bed for her which she's enjoying.

Looks like you are really settling in and getting organized!

That is a beautiful teapot, and it seems that any tea brewed in it would have to be wonderful.

So glad that Tina is back with all of you - I'm sure she is glad as well, but of course would never want you to know ...

You're welcome! It's even prettier in situ. And that is one fat cat! :)

Ms. Tina is actually slimmer than she looks here, but she isn't a Twiggy kid of purr.

I love gray kitties. I miss mine.
