I pulled out my cute vintage tea cup and saucer with the hand painted cherries. I love the little hobnail trim on the saucer and the red, green, and turquoise colors.
I rarely drink tea, but I knew that I would need a spoonful of sugar.
I got into the pantry to see what kind of herbal tea I had. That’s when I spied this. I knew it was meant to be. . .I mean, the box is even turquoise.
I decided that I would have a different kind of tea. Ice, Ice, Baby. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I steeped the tea bags in my teapot and then let it cool to room temperature. I had to run a few errands so I put the tea pot in the refrigerator. When I returned I poured it into my cherry pitcher.
Perfect in my cherry tumbler. It had the most delicious hint of cherry. So refreshing on a hot summer day.
What better way to spend a lazy summer day than sipping ice tea under my new chandy?
Yup, it’s turquoise! In case you didn’t get enough, hee-hee; here’s a few more shots.
Did you notice how perfectly it matches my teacup?
In celebration of the lazy days of summer and 500 followers (YIPEE)! I am giving away a sweet cherry apron and darling crochet cherry hot pad. Thanks to my friends, Connie and Kathy for making these for me.
See how cute the apron is hanging. The apron is made from a checked dish towel. It’s hard to tell, but the white fabric has darling little cherries all over it.
Two chances to win.
