Sabi is a Japanese word meaning rust

... "cool stuff" is Ooglebloops specialty:

... the tea is delicious:

... don't you just love my duck cup?

Pat's wonderful gift to you is awesome. Between you and Pat, you two know how to pack a mail gift. Love those inchies. I may just make a few, after seeing so many around lately.

Love your duck cup (say that three times fast). It goes so well with your tea post. And your lilacs are adorable. As I was telling Pat, I haven't seen any since I moved to Kansas. Thanks for this visual reminder of their beauty.

Happy Tea Tuesday.

V-e-r-y cool inchies! It never ceases to amaze me how much art can actually fit in 1 sq. inch! Lovely package, and your lilacs are so pretty! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Greetings Kimmie,

Your package from Pat is just wonderful and I marvel at all the inchie arts. Your Lilacs are beautiful and as I mentioned at Pats blog, mine hardly ever bloom and yet I love these flowers and their fragrance.

Your images are well executed and the lighting is very good.

Warmest regards,
