our creative space . . . 'creative taste buds'
My studio is really coming together, a huge effort seeing i've halved the size & put all my storage tubs in there too, spreading out was sheer luxury. So while i'm not crafting, i'm working on other parts of . . . me . . . like my desire to drink tea, but disliking the taste. I have always loved the idea of organic happy healthy teas (sans caffeine) i sampled some fruity ones iced over Christmas. Now with Winter fluttering in, i'd like an alternative to hot chocolate (calories) & this week took myself off to T2 for an education on what suits my very inexperienced tea palate.
This is not a PR post, i paid the $68 for the jug & teas from my hot little pocket, however, every staff member i've ever come across in this shop is so informative & enthusiastic about tea, i'm happy to promote them. This week i picked up the smaller jug (i have the 2L - it's quite a commitment) & these flavours, which, shock horror, i enjoyed (in store samples) as hot teas. I was so proud of myself & how creative my taste buds are becoming.
So this morning, between the school run & errands, i popped home for a cup of toasty nougat & homemade cookies, it was so comforting & dare i say, filling . . . satisfying!! Tonight i'm going to try the red choc mint, which the T2 girl said is amazing with a splash of milk too. Mmmm. I like this pace but i'm never drinking coffee, i like the smell but taste, ick.
If you're into vintage tea sets, check out my friend Heidi from The Polka Dot Petticoat blog in Alaska USA, for some amazing finds, prepare to be jealous - coloured glass to Dutch tin sets!!
Meanwhile, back at chicken central, check out my little blogging pal.
I want to get back into screen printing shortly, like my muse?? She'll grow into those feet on day, right now, she's looking a bit scrawny & dare i say, like a rooster, noooo!!
Happy Creative Spaces this week folks, hope to be sewing soon, but right now my head is so giddy with the thought of my husband coming home, nothing else matters, love Posie
