A tinge of blue

Well, the sun may have been shining bright yesterday on our walk but that wind was whipping around and felt like a hot poker in your face. That description always makes the retired-guy laugh.

On return, once my face thawed, I tried a new tea that I received as a gift from the kids. Vanilla Chai....oh my! It's made by London House and it's good.
It tasted even better in one of my favorite tea-cups and a bit of honey added.

I took these photos during the 'blue hour'. From what I can tell from other blogs,  it is the period of twilight  when there is neither full daylight or complete darkness. Your photos actually take on a blue tinge.
So here are a few of my step-back cupboard during the blue hour. Normally, the doors are kept closed because of the cats.
I've added a few bunnies.
Isn't she the cutest? Look at her big clodhoppers.
I love her little dress and jacket, too.
That Audrey...I asked her today what her favorite colour is.
She gave me her look and said "Purrrrrrple, what else."  

Tea needs something with it, right?
But sometimes it's good to run out of cookies.

hugs, Deb


  1. Audrey is a such a sweetie =)
    Tea and chocolate.
    I could so do that!

  2. Hi Deb,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. If you ever decide to build, be sure to ask everyone you know what they'd do different. Right now, I would say I would have spent the money on the plastic tubs and forgot about the cardboard boxes. I'll explain another post. Life is crazy hectic right now because we are living in one room in our basement and trying to get our house in town all ready to sell. It looks like we have a bit in common. I'm actually in the process of moving stuff out of the cardboard boxes and into the plastic bins. I had no idea I had so many teacups and teapots! And I see on your sidebar a picture of Tasha Tudor...I saw her at the Cincinnati Flower Show. Got an autograph even. She was a very eccentric person. Well, I best get back to my blog...thanks for visiting.

  17. We love watching your decorating Deb. We don't decorate for spring or for Easter in NZ, so we love all of your bits and pieces. People only decorate their houses for Christmas.
