I am posting this for Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound because the linky it is up already!!!
I am sitting here at the computer, tea mug in hand...an Emma Bridgewater Swallow mug...my favorite because it is not only a bird but a pun...swallow...get it???...sorry, sophomoric humor. The say puns are the lowest form of humor. But I was raised with a county school superintendent -my father - who was a horrible punster. We used to say he was shot with puniccillin at birth and needed to go to the punitentiary! You get it.....
So, where was I? Oh yes, Emma Bridgewater's Swallow mug...drinking tea and listening to the snow/ice crunch as the cars go by. We have had 9 inches of snow in the last 2 days, and today it is cloudless and 25 degrees...hence the crunch!
I wanted to share this so cute padded and hand made cat tea cozy a lady made in town. I think it is so cute! I added antique high button shoe eyes. I have tons of them because my English grandmother collected them and I have tons! Isn't he cute?
You can see more about the pink cat tea cozy at Antiques and Teacups by clicking the photo.
I also want to share 2 English chintz tea tins I acquired recently. I absolutely LOVE tea tins, and have them all over the kitchen as well as stocking them in our antique shop. They bring such a spot of color to any space, and they are definitely more fun than boring glass, in my opinion. These are really nice!
We haven't gone outside today...preferring to stay inside and warm. The cat has been going nuts because of the extra business of the birds at the bird feeders because so much of their usual forage is hidden under the snow which is now covered by a layer of ice. Tinker climbs onto the window sills, mumbles, comments and wops his tail in a military tattoo. I don't think the birds see him, which is good. Ahhh...frustration to be an inside cat...but much healthier!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Today really is a day the Lord has made and I have certainly been rejoicing in the beauty of our white and frozen world. And to think we thought, when moving out of the mountains a few years ago, that we wouldn't have to deal with snow again at sea level. HA!
