A Cup of Tea with Me

For the past month I have been a student in the classroom of Blog with Pip and I have a folder full and a notebook bursting with ideas. Now we have graduated, we have been invited to write this post by our fearless leader,  Pip Lincolne of Meet Me At Mikes, so here I am to chat about me over a cup of tea.  If you pop over to Pip’s blog, you can read posts by the other lovely students.  I got to spend time with some creative, inspiring folk I can tell you. Today’s cup of tea features a gorgeous vintage pink willow pattern teacup and saucer.  My youngest picked it out from a flea market while we were on holiday in Cape Cod last year.  I must admit, I don’t drink out of it, I need a big mug of tea, but big mugs are not so pretty.

7/52 Weekly photos

First up this week are the weekly Color/Colour photos.  Green was the chosen colour last week and photo shooting was headed up by Xanthe and Andrea and Instagrammed in style under #color/colour.   I managed to spot some green walls, green trees and a fab old Robin Hood book. The other part of todays photo collection is an assignment from Blog With Pip which is a fantabulous e course I am doing.  The course runs at intervals through the year and I recommend it highly, just the right combination of techy brain work and creative fun stuff.  Headed up by Pip of Meet Me At Mikes. The homework was to take five photos over the weekend and here they are.  All of mine were taken in the antique mall close to where we live. I managed to leave everything there, although I nearly gave into the cute sunflower salt and pepper pots and the Satellite Camera. Must. Resist. Cool. Old. Stuff. I snapped this last one while we were walking home from school one day …

I have done Taking Stock posts before here and here and I do enjoy them, thanks to Pip at Meet Me At Mikes for the list.  These lists are so much fun and quite the insight if you just whizz through them without thinking too much.

Reading: ‘Where the Moon Isn’t’ by Nathan Filer (Originally published with the title The Shock of the Fall in the UK). Wanting: The snow to melt. Looking: At the BBC iPlayer deciding what to listen to. Playing: ‘The Now Show’ on the BBC iPlayer. Deciding: Which beads to order to make new jewels. Wishing: I could execute all of the ideas I have! Enjoying: Having lots of ideas. Waiting: For ‘Where Women Create’ magazine to arrive at our library so I can borrow it. Liking: Classes at ‘Blog With Pip’. …
