For the Love of Tea...

Before Christmas, I came across a post at The Pleasant Times
of a lovely gift she had made.
I followed the link to the
tea wallet tutorial
and delightfully 'whipped' one up.

It was very simple to make
and it was the perfect little gift
for my special tea drinking friend.

I can't wait to make one for myself, too. *Ü*

That is so very adorable. So cute.

Brittany said...

How cute! I am excited to try out the links your included in your post below. I am up for ideas for next school year...especially economics for Brittany. She insisted that Home Economics should be enough but, hey, I guess the right thing would be to have her to do regular economics... Ha!

Have a great rest of the week in the Lord!

Thank you for linking to me!
Those tea wallets are so much fun to make, and look so nice! I like the fabric you chose.
I really like the picture you have on the sidebar, the one of the little girls that says "children are an heritage of the LORD." May I ask where I can go to get it? I saw it recently in print but have not had much luck finding it online. I so wanted it for my blog this Christmas!

Michelle ~ Thank you! Ü

Susan {Brittany} ~ I'm glad the links were helpful. I intend to post what we're using this year, I just need to sit down and compose the list. ;o) Ally said the same about Home Economics. lol And the subject she didn't want (Economics) has, actually, become her favorite this year!

Lillibeth ~ Thank you for sharing the tea wallet idea. I love it!
The picture on my sidebar is from Mom of 9s KJV Greetings page. That is the only place I have been able to find it. Hope that helps. Thank you for visiting with me!

Hi there! I was just taking a little bit of free time to browse for other homeschooling moms who blog... and landed here :O)

I love all the pictures!

I too have just began to to keep the Simple Woman's Daybook :O)

nice 'meeting' you.

I keep two blogs one personal and the other dedicated just for homeschooling. If you should visit, you'll find that you can get to either place from each blog.

Christina, your blog has inspired me many times over, I enjoy your true Christ-filled interest in your family and your goals. I wanted to let you know that there was an award waiting for you at my blog, I understand if it takes some time to "pick it up"...

Blessings from another busy mom!

Thank you so much for your gift in the mail. It certainly will be a pleasure to spend time in the next few weeks and read them. I'm especially blessed by your words in the card and continued prayers.

I LOVE this tea wallet idea. I drink tea every day! I have been using some Scripture Tea and I will be making these to bless others!
