T Stands for Tuesday and Teabags :)

It's Tuesday again :) 

Christmas is just around the corner and I am really enjoying the fact that I'm not working this season. 
The back has greatly improved and as long as I am careful and  don't over do it I feel great! I just wish I was better at not over doing it :-/ 
I have my shopping done for the holidays and half of it wrapped :) This is major for me! I'm usually up til way past midnight ...stressing the wrapping... the night before kind of gal. I'm kinda liking the no stress part of this year . 
Now I'm working on odds and end craft stuff and fixing up more teabags as gifts. 
Last week I filled and sealed 75 teabags 

Now I'm working of creative packaging ideas. 
Here's my first idea...

The photos are old photos I recently found of my son and daughter... many, many years ago :) ... I thought the grandkids would enjoy those :) 

 Each tin is filled with my night time relaxing blend that tastes wonderful too. 

I'm not sure what I will come up with next. 
I was gifted a tea set this week. My brother-in-law is moving to Florida and clearing out his home. He gave me my Mother-in-laws tea set.

I'm really happy to have it. He also gave me her Nativity Set that she painted in ceramics class back in the 60's I'll be setting that up this week and will post pictures then. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit!! 

Here are some random thoughts for the day>

...ok... one more just  for fun one ....

If I don't get back before the BIG DAY arrives...


  1. Your tins are adorable, I love thatyou fill your own teabags, and I LOVE the final quote you shared. Happy T Day (just in time) :o))
    Merry Christmas to you and ours :o))

  2. I was completely impressed with your tin idea. What a great way to store tea AND present it as a gift, too. I bet it will be treasured long after the tea has been drunk.

    Sorry I'm late visiting. My friend Kathy visited today and I was out of the house early with her to go shopping and a very late lunch.

    Thanks for sharing your Christmas gifting ideas with us for T this Tuesday. And I hope you and your family have a joyous, safe, and relaxing Christmas.
