DIY for Flower Teabags...very cool! And new Wellies!





I found this tutorial while blog surfing today...a DIY tutorial on making flower petal, tea dyed teabags at the blog Willowday.

Here is the link:  Willowday DIY Teabags

How cool is that??!



And...taa daa!!! My new wellies!!!! Actually a gift...she tried to find blue but settled on green. Pretty coo anyway, dontcha think???? I LOVE the William Morris or Liberty (of London) type print!


In case you don't know the Brit slang...wellies are short for Wellington Boots based upon leather Hessian boots. They were worn and popularised by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. This novel "Wellington" boot became a staple of hunting and outdoor wear for the British aristocracy in the early 19th century.  I am so stylin"!   Do you think the folks at the Downton Abbey shoot would have liked them???   Naw, me neither!

  3. Yes dear lady, you are stylin for sure with your new Wellies. I have looked at them in the stores several times and think, should I? One time I'll likely cave in but for now I'll just admire yours.
