tea and roses

My husband has around 75 rosebushes in our garden.
I'm using one of our rose catalogs for a craft project.
Shhhh! don't tell!

My tea is Celestial Seasonings something or other.
I've long since used the box it came in for making inchies, so it's a mystery tea.
It smells like gingerbread though - yum!

I'm making paper beads with some of the colorful pages from the rose catalog.
(Here's a link to a how-to on YouTube)
I'm going to compare different protective coatings on them and show you the differences.
That's for later though .....
until then, have a beautiful day!!!

Please also visit these other lovely "T" spots:

leave it to you to create something wonderful out of a humble catalog!

my favorite scent to wear is "African Tea Rose" oil

and YES, it is cool how tulips keep growing when cut and in a vase, thanks for the ice tip :)

I LOVE the Celestial Seasonings boxes and (if I might be honest) have used their teas to scent stationery!!! Love the beads and am looking forward to the results of your experimenting with different coatings. Ohhhh . . . 75 (or so) rosebushes! I'd be in Heaven! Hugs, Terri xoxo
