I am getting the sun room ready for bringing plants inside. Wintering over so-called 'summer' plants helps me get through the winter.......not my favorite time of year.
I got a new shipment of tea last week. I love opening the new bags, touching, smelling and tasting the new varieties and old friends I've ordered. If you drink a lot of it, I totally recommend buying loose tea from a good company. I would become totally poverty stricken if I were to on quality tea bags from the market!
Two new teapots.
getting too hung up in definitions 'soft leather' for me is like the leather in a comfortable pair of shoes, not as pliable as glove leather, but not close to belt leather.) The first pot is from the idea of Aladdin's lamp. Could a djinn come out the spout? Perhaps tea is the djinn.
I have all sorts of teapots, some functional, some decorative. However, there is something in me that has to make my teapots functional. These two will not hold much more than a mug full, but they should work. We'll see, Grasshopper, we'll see....
And a Happy Birthday to Steve Reich. At seventy-five he is still going strong composing, performing inspiring younger artists to stretch their boundaries. A nice example to a woman of 'a certain age'!
