Life is Like a Teacup

..have you ever heard a story of a teacup? I read it here The Teacup Story - When Life seems hard, it's so sad yet beautiful. Just thought to share :)

On happier note, I recieved a beautiful package from the postman again today (Yippee!), it's from my dear friend Marianne at Leisure Lane, I've won a giveaway at her blog, a beautiful handknitted pot holders by her, it's so beautifully wrapped with lovely ribbon and a lovely Tea Time card that she drew herself, she's very talented and creative.

..all the way from the USA, Thank You, Marianne! i love them. You can visit her blog to see all of her creations or her shop if you want to buy a card like the one she sent me :)

... I have been lazy these couple of days (blame it on the weather) so I don't have anything to accompany my tea, I've been reading a book that Scarlett gave me awhile back and just got the time to read it today while drinking tea from one of my fave mug while waiting for the rain to stop

then had an opportunity to take a picture of my stardust flowers that i put in a teapot, an idea that I got also from Scarlett. I wanted to buy more cheap teapots from charity shop and drill holes in them to use them as flower pots.

That's all from me, going to continue reading and perhaps tomorrow I'll be back crafting..:)

    I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed this first visit to your blog. I too love tea and everything around it: embroidering tea cups, collecting teapots, and knitting tea cozies.

    I have just added you to my blog list.

    Your teapot flower pot is perfectly you. I love it.

    Sometimes it's a good thing to be lazy...to take a day or two just to be~ to sit quietly on a rainy afternoon with a cup of tea in your favorite cup is quietly refreshing. So enjoy it.

    Love,Marianne xo

  10. Thanks for sharing the teacup story, I really enjoyed reading it. What a lovely package you received, the card is very cute. I am liking your polka dot mug :) Very cute idea of using the teapot to grow flowers in. Here is hoping we see some more sunshine soon..cross fingers..till then enjoy your cups of tea and book.

  13. Thanks for the Teacup Story link, just what I needed. Your blog continues to be beautiful!

  14. Hi Susan,
    Congrats on winning the pretty pot holders! Love your little teapot planter! The bright pink impatiens? look lovely in it. I used to do that all the time when my kids were small. I'm afraid to admit I'm just using faux plants now. I have always loved the Teacup Story and I will probably share it in a post down the road. Thank you for joining me for tea, my friend, and enjoy the rest of your week.


  15. Congratulations on winning such fine gifts!
    Your red and white tea mug is very pretty and so great for summer.
    I will go check out the tea cup story.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
