Tips and Tea on Tuesdays and a Heart a Day: 14

On Tips and Tea on Tuesdays, I will cover a topic and hopefully provide you with some tips that will be helpful! And just as an afterthought, tea may occasionally be a cup of Joe!

Happy Valentines Day!

Tea today is especially fitting as it is Hibiscus, it is a slight ruby red, almost magenta color, and tastes a bit like cranberries. This white cup and pot set has a special memory attached to it, as it was given to me by a friend when I was 18. I shan’t tell you how many, (MANY), years ago that was, but one thing to admire is that it survived all of the moves that I have made in my lifetime. I wouldn’t give it away for the world!

Today’s Tip: Is a simple one, keep those you love, close to your heart, treasure and treat any gift given to you as one coming straight from their heart.

The first image is a heart that was embroidered by my mom. The middle image is a heart that our daughter Gwen made for us when she was in grade school, she is 40 now, so this tells you how long I have kept this treasure. The last image, is a pillow made from ribbons that my husband found at Target for me, what a guy, and a treasure himself!

A Heart a Day: 14

Heart Felt Wishes to you all! I love hearts, I love the shape, I love to decorate the house at Valentine’s Day, and I have a lot of hearts… so I decided to post A Heart a Day for the entire month of February.

Primarily Crazy for Kevin, the man that I have loved for 39 years, and will so for the rest of our lives!
