It's been cold and rainy in NE Texas this week, perfect weather for a cup of tea and some flowers to brighten the kitchen.
I'm usually not a purple person, but the granddaughters are coming and they both love purple just like most little girls do.
The flowers weren't meant for the kitchen, but when I went to make a cup of my favorite English Breakfast tea, the room was kind of dreary due to the overcast weather.
And it seemed I may have made the kitchen a little bland in my effort to tone down the yellowish brown cabinets.
All the brown, black and white of the kitchen seemed to need a pick-me-up.
It was then I remembered my $5 worth of flowers I'd just bought in bright cheerful colors of purple and yellow.
The pig seems happy with his cheerful bouquet. He didn't seem to care that they came from The Dollar Store and were only a dollar a piece for each bunch.
I'm trying to think of something witty for the chalkboard, but all I can come up with so far is "Happy Easter!"
Yeah, I know that's not too original...in fact it sounds exactly like "Happy 4th!" which is what I got stuck on for 2 or 3 Julys in a row!
I'm open to suggestions for a kicky phrase. Meanwhile, I plan to repaint the little chalkboard black to get rid of the residue of chalk.
Sharing my tea post this week at the Friend's Sharing Tea party at Bernideen's. I hope you'll join me there.
Thanks for dropping by!
