April 5th, 2011 | Sunday Tea for one

Just a quick update while I’m busy working away at my post on the OOAK show… Every Sunday, I have my tea in a vintage tea cup. Why? It’s just more calming! It makes it more of an experience, and reminds me to enjoy the simple things in life. (I’m doing a 52 week photo project over on my Flickr, and this was my week 13 photo)

The tea is a new one that I got at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto this past week. (Post to on that to come later this week!) It’s an organic orange and mint chai. It’s from Natur’el Tea, which is an Alberta based company focused on the benefits of herbs, quality of the tea leaves, and the ceremony in which it is enjoyed. (I also got the macaroons from a booth at the show too.. more on that in my next post!)

I’m also working on a little 30 day list project for the month of April from here. I found out about this when there was only about a week left, so I decided to do it on my own in April, finally putting some blank pages in my scrapbook to use! I can’t decide if I should post what I have each week on here, or just post the final project (and tweet my progress occasionally). Thoughts?

April 1st, 2011 | Etsy Picks: Spring Fever

Spring is here!!! Woohoo! And I have spring fever! I’m so excited, Spring is my second favourite season (Fall being the first). This week’s picks are colours/things that just visually make me either think of spring, or give me the same refreshed feeling that Spring does when I look at them! Oh happy days!

The 3rd last one is a little special – my most recent Etsy buy. Floral mug (pattern of your choice) with whatever letter you’d like on them! I ordered the pink, with the letter K of course! We’re so excited for Spring! Has it arrived where you are yet?!
