Cute new tea glasses
One of the wonderful things about blogging, say the experts, is that a blog is a dialogue and not a monologue. I wholeheartedly agree. As a blog writer, I have to say I greatly enjoy the feedback I get from readers. You've shared recipes and cooking tips, bits of history, recommendations for tea, and all kinds of things that make this blog far more lively than it would ever, ever be if yours truly were the only one "talking" all the time.
That said, I have to tell you how grateful I am that a reader and friend of this blog, Tea Lover Denise, e-mailed last week with the most wonderful thing she'd found and wanted to share with me. She was searching for "tea glasses" on eBay and came across these adorable pink reading glasses. They're a Mary Engelbreit design and feature tiny little teacups on the glasses and case. The seller, who has a store called Crafty Lady, was exceptional, sending out my 2.0 strength glasses (just $9.25 plus some very inexpensive shipping) immediately. I simply love them!
I wear contacts during the day, but now my 43-year-old eyeballs require reading glasses for doing needlework in the evening, like these two Cathedral Window blocks I made last night. I will NOT age before my time, so I'm big into the cutesy reading glasses. I have some plain pink ones, some "smart girl" teal ones, some black Brighton ones, some burgundy floral ones ... and now, some pink teacup reading glasses. Thank you, Denise!
