Tuesday With the Kims

Yesterday, the sun was shining, again! I have a new spigot jar from the auction, and today is Tea on Tuesday, so I decided to make sun tea.  It's Chinese Oolong, because it was in my pantry. (Fun auction purchase for 50 cents!)

As I worked on projects, the tea brewed.

Kind of nice to live isolated from the street and road, you can have a tree stacked on your porch and no one sees.  Until you post it on your blog. So, this is what I'm up to this week.  Wedding centerpieces, wedding veil,  putting "stuff" away,  marking, taking to my booth, and listing on Etsy, after my weekend of buying.

Visit other Tea on Tuesday posts here at Kim's blog.

Now, for Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen's Cafe...

Another auction buy from this weekend.  How sweet will this be in my tank garden?!  I edited the photo with "cream in my coffee" and "extreme grunge" both from Kim.  Most of the grunge, though, is original :)

Truth be told:  I may have made that sun tea just to post for Tea on Tuesday and to show you my new jar. I may not drink much of it!


  1. Sun tea! That sounds (and looks) good. It is sunny and supposed to be 75° here today. Friday we have a 60% chance of snow!

    Love the tricycle!

  2. Your photo makes me want some of that tea! Lovely! And your textured photo is great! Looks vintage! :)

  3. That sun tea looks wonderful. I was telling Yvonne that the sun's too low for sun tea in the morning in my part of the world, but I love the look of yours. And if you don't drink it, we'll still understand. And being a lover of rust, I really admire the photo of the trike you bought this weekend. A bit of photoshopping it didn't seem to hurt, either.

  4. Really like your tricycle photo. Two textures make such a difference! So Jill, where do you have a booth? And we need to see more wedding details!

  5. The tea looks wonderful & I love the little bike ~ I have one just like it that my children rode when they were little :-)

  6. I love the vintage look of your spigot pot. Perfect way to make some delicious sun tea. And I am so enjoying your photoshop pictures. I'm still trying to learn the basics, but I'm always inspired by others like yourself who make such beautiful images.
    Thanks for the delicious tea!

    Tea on Tuesdays

  7. Well we certainly enjoy you making that pretty sun tea in your special spigot jar with the fabby cork lid...can you tell I really like it ;)

    Those wood slices look so nice stacked...can't wait to see how you transform them Jill

    Happy T to you...enjoy the sunshine
    p.s. and your altered photo IS amazing...that trike is a gem!

  8. I may have to follow you lane just to get a peak at that WONDERFUL tricyle!

  9. LOL!!! I like your jar... even if you don't drink the tea! And I'm laughing 'cause you have a tree on your porch...

    ;-D LOVE the tricycle!!!


  10. Hah! I'll bet some kids put some wonderful miles on that trike :)
    Your sun tea looks good, very cool jar!
    Have a happy Tuesday.

  11. Love the tea jar!!! If they have not run out - I will get you some maple sugar candy - email me your address. :>)

  12. I had to laugh - I sometimes do things for the sake of a pretty photo, too. Ah, blogging!

    Love the stack of wood slices. I'm eager to see what you'll be doing with them.

  13. Sun tea.. YUM.. Used to make it all the time when we lived in Arizona since it took no time at all in the 100 degree plus temps to brew.

    Great looking spigot jar!


  14. WOOT! Look at us go...It seems the more I do, the more I want to do more. Loving it!

    Did you see the martha episode where she sands down slabs like you have? Swoon!


  15. Well even if you don't drink the tea, you have some great teabags there! (I save the teabag paper for projects ... And half of my tea goes down the drain .... But those teabags .... I save every single one!!!) I will have to investigate your Etsy shop ..... You shop on the weekends and then sell on Etsy? Sounds like WAY too much fun!

  16. Love your images here! I found you through Texture Tuesday. Your texture picture is great. Truth be told my favorite of all the images on this post is the image of the tree stack! I would love to have a stack of trees like that to bring to school and use with my students.

    Peace! And thanks for visiting me over at Surfside Serenity and leaving a comment. :)

  17. Oh look at you! GORGEOUS tricycle...yes, it will be a splendid addition to the tank garden! In the fall, you should stuff some bib overalls with straw, use a pumpkin head and have him sitting on the trike...up by the road of course so everyone can see him! And 50 cents for the spigot jar, seriously? WOW! You done good! Xo, Sue

  18. Love your tea photo, very cool! Those wood slices look like they're art already! Mx

  19. Oh my gosh Jill... love your new jar!! and wow... i really really want that tricycle.... fabulous edit my friend....
