Tea & Leaf Tuesday.....

I'm on a French theme for the tea part at least....

...because on the day we met up with our friends in Paris...

...as we came up from the Metro station nearest Monmartre....

...the first thing I saw was the Kusmi Tea Shop!!!

So, it had to be done didn't it....

....the purchase of a pack of green teas...

...to go with the pack of Russian teas Bloke gave me for Christmas! :-)

Today's indulgence is "Green Tea with Strawberry"



(Don't you just looooooooove those little tins?!)

...which almost completes the French theme...

...apart from telling you that the first "French collage" has been completed...

...and will be blogged later in the week. :-)

Now to the leaf....

...and for this part we travel to Meso-america...



...for this little pot that I crocheted in linen warp and embellished with turquoise chips.

I dipped it in dye and finally stiffened it with matt varnish.

It sits next to the sewing machine catching all the thread ends.....

...of which there are plenty!


Cheers m'Dears....

I LOVE this pot!!! I'm always susceptible to pots and boxes and little drawers - anything that holds other stuff is near and dear to me!

The pot is seriously cute (and useful) but the thought of green tea with strawberries is sending me hot foot to the kettle right now!
