Tea Stands for Tuesday - 11/14/17

Tuesday morning and if you are familiar with my blog you know what that means.  It is time to get together with friends over at the Altered Book Lover blog.

Coffee is ready and you can see someone has been drinking it.

Saw this on my morning walk.   I think I need this sign outside my door. 

napkins marked Hallmark - 69 cents for the package

I recently stopped at a thrift store on a whim.  Not looking for (or needing) anything in particular.  I found this package of napkins.  I thought they were unusual and so they are going in my stash of mixed media art supplies.

metal lunch pail - $1.19

I also found this small colorful lunch pail.

One of the little people in my life is sure to like it.  

Spent very little but amused myself.   


  1. ha ha-love the coffee sign! hard to resist some fun napkins-I know:) Cute lunchbox too. Happy T day!

  2. That's such a brilliant sign, I love it! The napkins will make a lovely addition to your craft stash and I would be happy to be gifted that lunch pail/box, I'm never too old for anything Disney ...lol 😉. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog and sending you Happy T Day wishes! J 😊

  3. I have not been back to my favorite resale shop in some time now-always fun to find surprises. I love those napkins
    Loved the coffee sign too Happy T Day Kathy

  4. I like those napkins. They will be great in some art because they are unusual and nice pieces of ephemera I have never seen. I am surprised someone like Tim H or someone else hasn't made restaurant checks for art pages. Maybe they are hard to find as they must get greasy or full of fingerprints. :) Enjoy your coffee and hope you are fabulous (after a cup) on this T day. Hugs-Erika

  5. That coffee sign would be great in a kitchen ;) I like the napkins; I've never seen anything like it. Happy T Tuesday

  6. love that sign would be great in the kitchen and the cute coffee pot on the stove how dinky

  7. OH! I need that sign!!! LOL! Those napkins are going to make so very cool art!
    Happy T-day

  8. Aaaahhh love thrift stores.... they are my Achilles heel when it comes to me trying not to collect too much stuff...lol And gosh i LOVE that sign! It made me smile and i think it would make me smile everyday... lol Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  9. So good to see your were enjoying your coffee. That sign was AWESOME and would look great in your kitchen.

    I want to find some of those party napkins. They are super. I try to save any guest checks I get that they will allow me to keep. I know they no longer make them, but they are absolutely perfect and I hope you bring at least ONE out for our summer T party when it turns five.

    Thanks for sharing your coffee, the sign, and your trip to the thrift store with us for T this Tuesday.

  10. That sign was brilliant, it would make a good quote for a journal page as well, The napkins were a bargain, look forward to seeing how you use them.
    Happy T day wishes.

  11. You amused me too, Darla. The napkins are really cute. I'd use them for a party, then collected the dry ones for art!
