Tea on Tuesday::Texture Tuesday::Tuesday with the "Kims"

Well, it's Tea on Tuesday and I am enjoying a little sand tea today :)
I'm sure you'd love some too!

The gals were out playing before the next bout of rain hit.  The mosquitoes weren't even biting.  The challenge for Kim's Texture Tuesday this week was to have people or a person in the photo.  This looked like a good opportunity.

This is one of my favorite cast aluminum pots that is supposed to be sitting on the front porch. Nothing stays where it should.  You don't even want to see the granite pot that got run over two days ago.

...a little garnish for her tea....

We have this fun playhouse in our backyard and it sits on sand.  You can imagine the sand that is tracked into the laundry room.  Usually, but not always it is all knocked off by the time they get past the kitchen.  After this kind of play they usually stop for a foot and hand bath in the laundry room sink.

Today's photos were processed with Nelly Nero's Ginger Sky action followed by a layer of Kim Klassen's "Empty Page" on multiply and her "Mudding" texture on soft light.

I think I have some pictures of the playhouse from about 4 years ago when it was clean.  I may have to dig for them and post them sometime.

  13. These photos are AWESOME! I SO remember having sand tea when I was a kid!!! with an enameled teapot!

    My condolences on the loss of your granite pot. *sob* A heart breaker for sure. I am assuming you kept the pot and now it is something sculptural in your tank garden? ;)
