loose tea

I've been telling people interested in joining the 
Tea on Tuesday posts, 
"it's loose tea."

What I mean by "loose tea" is that there really aren't any rules.
You can post about Diet Coke.
You don't have to link back to me if you don't want to.
You don't have to play every week.

I started Tea on Tuesday as a personal break from the
"look at what I made, isn't it cool?"
art blog posts.

A little "Type B" in the middle of a "Type A" world.
A rest.
A break.
A pause.
A hot (or cold) cuppa tea (or joe).
With friends.
A "hi, how are ya" in the middle of a "gotta run" week.

I've moved the blog roll of Tea on Tuesday-ers to my sidebar.
That way, you can see at a glance if someone's "Tea" post is up or not.
I will begin taking folks off the roll if they don't post a Tea on Tuesday post for several weeks in a row.
I hope that doesn't seem "anti-loose tea" .... but I hate to send people off to dead ends.

So .... Hi! How are ya?
I've been uber-busy ....
trying to check things off my list
I guess that's pretty Type A :)
I think I'll go make myself that cup of tea now and drop in and see you guys!

Love the concept of Tea on Tuesday blogs on your sidebar. Mine shows yesterday's post, but I'm hoping my Tea will show up soon. I've been to everyone's tea blog this morning and this is an excellent idea.

Loose tea is a great post and a wonderful play on words. That saucer is gorgeous, too. Looks lovely with its flowers and gold decorative trim around the rim. Happy Tea Tuesday.

I love your Tea on Tuesdays post -- it's good for the eye and the heart.

After your post on my blog, I looked and have the Le Chat and Le Canard, among others, but not the Le Baleine. I thought I had them all. I also have Taylor and Ng dishtowels, pot holders, and a huge copper cheese grater I use for a pot rack. I have always loved their items. They are so unique and different. Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one who had their "art." These mugs really are perfect for a plentiful cuppa.

your 'tea' respite is so sweet and definitely gets one in the mindset to slow it down...enjoy the moment...even if i have to run out and find that great tea you've been telling us about...i'll do it on foot and take it all in at my own pace.

Steph said...

This sounds like a great idea. I don't know if I would have anything to add to it. I'll think about it over a cup of tea! You are right though; sometimes we just start listing projects and forget their is more to life.
