Tuesday Tea and Talk Shows...

When I was a kid, I watched daytime TV with my mom... Before her "stories" (soap operas) started, we watched a talk show or two. The one I remember most was the Merv Griffin Show. For those of you too young to remember it, it was a talk show that had celebrities as guests and they talked about what was going on in the celebrities' lives... not unlike your typical late night talk show today. But daytime talk shows today tend to focus more on the real life of everyday people. Since I haven't been working, I've started watching one or two on an irregular basis. My favorite is the Nate Berkus Show! It has the obligatory celebrity, but mostly it's about design and fashion and how to acheive your own... no matter where you are in life. I didn't even know who this guy was until I saw him on an episode of "Design Star." (Am I getting too hung up in TV???  or worse... reality TV???)  Anyway... on his website he has a daily giveaway... Yay!

Today's giveaway - a cool toaster!

So I thought I'd share that with you while drinking my California Tea House Golden Monkey Paw black tea... which I let get cold... (and is in a cup with gold trim so I can't microwave it) oh well... there's more in the pot! Stay tuned for a review of this one on the tea blog!

Happy Tea Tuesday everyone! Don't forget to visit Kimmie to see what everyone else is up to today!


  1. Wow what a name for a tea. LOL But sounds interesting. I have heard of Nate B., I think from the Oprah show. I have seen his show a couple of times. I don't watch much TV but will sit down now and then and see what' on.

  2. That is a very cool looking toaster! Thanks for sharing..I'm going to have to check it out a little more closely.

  3. what a great toaster! happy tea day and what a great bird cage below!

  4. Nate is a cutie...I saw him originally on OPRAH..I MISS OPRAH! the guy in her time slot is not doing it for me...
    Lots of temptations on the tellie that's for sure...I've never watched so many shows...maybe being able to see them On Demand and record them is to blame hah

    Happy T to ya Mz D!

  5. I like the looks of that toaster! Your tea sounds very intriguing.
