Happy Tea Cup Tuesday. Not a real blog post on Tea Cups but I am going to show one pretty one just to keep with the theme.
One of my favorite things at this time of year is to open a new, unwritten in, Journal! All those pages just waiting for inspiration!
I love January, always have, even in the depths of winter when we lived in Maine. It was the one month in the year when I didn't USUALLY have outside commitments and could usually get to do some projects or things I had been putting off.
This new year and January in particular has been presenting a few challenges including JURY DUTY so I have to admit to being being behind in even thinking about Tea Cups and other fun stuff.
For the past two weeks I have been working on sewing projects that were neglected and art projects that had taken a back seat to the holidays. Things I really wanted to finish. And now, at the moment I am caught up, Just in time for the Jury Duty to take over my life for a bit... or not.... today I find out more about what it will entail this time. I have only served one other time and that was when I lived back in Maine, in another life.....
I am hopeful to get back on track for Teacup Tuesday, next week. I will have a weekend in the antique shop to take pictures and get something written.
But in the meantime I wanted to at least say hello and tell you what I have planned otherwise.
A few months ago I started subscribing to Folk Magazine. It is a wonderful magazine filled with things I love ..country things, simpler things. Just click on the magazine cover to learn more about it.
This weeks challenge is "What Goals do You Hope to Achieve This Year?"
I generally know better, after all the years that I have lived, than to make the broad statements like more exercise, get organized, etc. Mostly my goal this year is just to live the year productively and joyfully. Should not be too hard to do.....
My three areas of interest and therefore things I often blog about are Tea Cups, paper and book crafting, and Quilting. They will continue. We have plans for a Nascar race or two, a couple of Blue Grass festivals and many trips to Flea Markets. Lots of good stuff to blog about.
The Teacup Tuesdays will continue on Tuesday, the Folk Magazine Challenge on Mondays and on Friday I will try to talk about quilting or crafting. And trips we take on other days or included in one of the above topics. We shall just have to see how long those plans last.
Thanks for visiting today. And be sure to come back next week. And after you finish up your visit here be sure to check out the other tea parties in which I am taking part.
