OCTOBER ….Tis begins the season of celebrations. With Halloween, the arrival of all things Pumpkin (latte, spice, candles, pie…). Massachusetts has been unusually warm, with temperatures in the high 70’s ! So I can’t get into the real swing of Autumn just yet. However, I’m not complaining, I enjoy tea year round.
- Joanna at theafternoonteaset took us with her when she visited the Railway Museum in York, England
- Caroline over in Australia Mizpahcottage had a “multiple cups of tea day ” – I can definitely relate
- A perfectly named teacup – “Autumn Dreams” from Katherine
- Some wise words from Alexis over at teacuppoetry
So there you have it. My #teacuptuesday favourites for the month of October 2017.
You can check out September 2017 here.
So, who’s ready for Autumn ?
AUGUST ….Yet another wonderfully busy month. So busy that I forgot to post my favourite teacups. As I’m sitting here sipping the most delicious cup of Yorkshire Tea… I wonder if I’ve just been having too much fun hunting for new teacups while in London ! Can you blame a girl… ?!
The British Summer weather has been on the up. Lots of sunshine ! (I wish you could see the huge smile on my face ). I have been frequenting my local car boot Sunday sale in Pottersbury. I always find such fun things there. It holds a special place in my heart as it’s where I found most of my teacups for my wedding a few years ago.
So yet another wonderfully busy month. But do not despair, here are My #teacuptuesday favourites for the month of August 2017.
Do you have a favourite ?
Happy Teacup Tuesday lovelies! I finally got my hands on a new product called @criobru! I heard great things about this cocoa bean brew from Tom Taylor @thosgreentaylor and have been dying to try it out. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I can't buy it around here so I made a note to purchase some Crio Bru in Utah and then I was so busy I forgot, gah! They're running a free shipping promo right now so I figured I'd just order some, not a big deal. Fast forward to the drive back to Iowa. We stopped in Aurora, Nebraska to watch the total solar eclipse. As we were shopping for breakfast items in their tiny grocery store-seriously, it was grocery, craft, and hardware rolled into one haha. I noticed out of the corner of my eye some Crio Bru Kcups in the clearance section. Only problem was I don't have a Kcup machine and I wasn't going to buy one. But then I had a thought, if they were selling Kcups, maybe they also sold packages of it! Walked on over to the coffee section and woohoo- @criobru!!! ••••••••••••••••••••••••• Long story short, picked up two packages of this exciting cocoa bean drink in a random middle of nowhere town Nebraska! Also, this isn't an ad but if @criobru wants to send a couple extra packages to try, I certainly wouldn't be opposed haha! 😁If you like dark chocolate then you'll enjoy @criobru!
EMERALD GREEN… that’s what stopped me in my tracks when I was perusing my feed for my #TeacupTuesday favourite this week. This Wileman trio is gorgeous ! There are just too many details. From the stunning fluted detail on each piece to the ornate design, and what appears to be a lady driving tea on the teacup. It’s dainty, it’s cute and the perfect for month of May.
So, my favourite this week is from Yuka over at 📷: @desirable_antiques. By now you may be wondering, where can I find Wileman china. Well… You can find more Wileman beauties on Etsy here. (You’re welcome).
Each week I’m filled with excitement to see what beautiful teacups will turn up on #teacuptuesday feed. New folks are always joining in and I love to find other enthusiasts to follow. As a rule, I always try to have my first morning cup of tea, in a vintage teacup.
My favourite this week is from Yvette over at 📷: @shelovesblooms . Such a gorgeous display around a pretty teacup! The premium rose and black tea sounds delicious too and I shall be giving that a try!
Do you have any tea recommendations that I should try ?
The Hobonichi Interview Series is a blog segment where we get a sneak peek inside the diary of another Hobonichi user. My special guest today is Chotskibelle, from Singapore. I stumbled across her blog and immediately fell in love with it! I’m sure you will too, just read on! Start with Part 1 here.
How did you discover the Hobonichi?
It all started when I was visiting a Tokyu Hands store in Ginza, Tokyo in Spring of 2014.
I have always been a fan of pretty stationery since I was a child and as with every trip we make to Japan, I had negotiated with the Hubby some time to myself to visit all the stationery stores in the area so that I can browse through every aisle to my heart’s content. (They have very interesting products in these stores!) Continue reading Hobonichi Interview Series | Inside Chotskibelle’s Hobonichi Techo Part 1
