Tuesday Tea and Flowers...

So many of you know that I always put flowers on my desk at the beginning of the week, take a phone picture of them and send the pic out to friends to start their weeks off right... Well of course, having a G-gig (government job) yesterday was a holiday for me... so... here are today's flowers...

Notice what I keep my paper clips in on my desk... on the other side of my grandbabies' pic... a vintage Asian tea bowl...

and on my bookcase... my tea canister, Asian style tea set (a gift from my mom when I was a teenager) and more vintage Asian tea cups...  if you look closely in the 2 cups that go with the pot, you can see my Truvia in one and my business cards in the other... A gift from Kimmie is on the shelf (a lovely little tea bag folder made from paper, ribbon, and one of her twinchies all sewn together) sitting next to a tin of Green Tea with Pomegranite).

and here's my window sill... This sweet little pot is one I painted and glazed in deep yellow with purple and red slip stringers randomly applied.  I think it turned out very stylish...

So this is where I spend my weekdays, drinking my black tea...

  6. Oh, I love your office! You have made it so cosy. Love the tea set from your mom and the pot you painted yourself. This may be the office of a government employee, but it looks like the office of an artist!

    And how sweet that you send a flower bouquet photo to your friends each Monday to start their weeks off right.
