THANK YOU FOR MY TEAPOT..

"I cannot sit and chat with you,
the way I'd like to do.

So brew yourself a cup of tea,
I'll think of you, you think of me."

I won this adorable mini teapot from my friend, LINDA at  A LA CARTE and it arrived yesterday.
It is sooo cute.
It is so tiny....smaller than my tea cups
so I decided to put some pretty flowers in it to show you how cute it is.
This photo looks almost like a painting, doesn't it.?
THEN..
I had to "play around" in PhotoScape..
and using a flashlight for extra lighting gave me a strange and different look
Sepia...
Thanks so so much, LINDA,
for giving me a chance to win this cutie...
It made a beautiful photo for my header...:))
You may find this hard to believe but...
I am TOTALLY out of DESSERTS to serve you...
Only fresh fruits...
ummm...have an orange and
let's talk about it...

I love your little teapot!! It's too too cute and looks excellent with the flowers! I think too it looks like a painting. This reminds me I need to get my teapots out and give them a good washing. I might steal your idea and put some fresh cut roses in them. Better to have them on display that up on a shelf. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

What an adorable Tea Pot.

Well girlfriend, I don't have any tea to brew as I am doing a quick blog hop before I start work but I have a Starbuck's. I know, it is not even close but I so need the extra kick in the (fill in the blank)this morning.

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed weekend. Hugs, Sue

Vee said...

So cute and your pictures are some kind of wonderful. Let's see, we can chat about the lack of dessert this time? Well then, let's just say that as long as you come up with something yummy next time, I'll cut you some slack. (Truly, I've never understood how you could always have something new and delish featured. Now that's dedication!)

Rita said...

Your photos are great!now I have to go find out about Photoscape. Fresh fruits is what I am nibbling on with my cup of tea.
Happy weekend.

Hi bj, I adore your teapot and your little rhyme. Great photos and I will have an orange thank you. Growing up in Florida sure makes me wish I had some of that lovely citrus here in NC. We had trees and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Sigh!

Love you bunches,
Jeanne

What a cute post and an adorable and unique teapot! And hmmmm, Photoscape sounds intriguing. Is it an online photo editor. I use Picnik.com which is so eash to use. That combined with my Canon Powershot digital camera (also wonderfully easy to use) give me great photos of grandchildren and their crafts for my blog. Thanks for the great visit and the interesting tip. :)
