13 Novembre 2015 - Viv La Paris

 A sad ending to what had been a beautiful day. As we know Paris was attacked by terrorist who are jealous of women and therefore have an inferiority complex. I am being polite in my thoughts here because social graces holds back some worse things I would like to say about these flaming, jealous, small-minded (and an anatomical male part) eejets who like to think of themselves as men. As of now I am assuming these acts of terror were carried out only by men. May they get the shock of their after life when Allah won't have anything to do with them.

Enough about them. I wasted enough breath on them and they are not worthy of being spat on. May they get what they deserve from karma three times. So mote it be.

 Paris will never die. If Paris can survive the hellhound Hitler it can survive his modern day comrades that think that their way of thinking and feeling are the only right way.

The scenes of Paris tonight are heart wrenching to say the least. I have been lucky to know that some of my online friends in and around Paris are fine. Love and prayers go to them.

  In honor of those that were massacred this night and those that have thus far survived I want to share pictures of Paris that will never die because the spirit of good people are stronger than evil ones. besides if we forget, even for a moment, the love and kindness that is Paris then the ones that did what they did tonight will have one and I'll be damned if I will let that happen.

July 4, 2015

  Hope everyone in America and those overseas are having or have had a good Fourth of July. I had rain earlier in the day but it has stayed cloudy but I don't think this will deter my neighbors from shooting fireworks.

Tea for Tuesday # 18 - Meryl Ruth Part 1 - Teapots

It has been within the last week that I have been on Pinterest that I have discovered Meryl Ruth and her teapots and teabags and have fallen in love with their quirkiness and cuteness. She has so many that I like that I have decided to break them down into two parts or installments. The first part is dedicated to her teapots and, hopefully I will not lapse in time, will do her teabags for part 2.

  Meryl Ruth is owner of  Porcelain Grace  as well as being an art teacher of ceramic arts and award winning artist with museum exhibits who also sells of her works.

  Here are a few of her tea pots.

Owl and the Pussycat teapot - 2010

Rocket Doggie Dog teapot - 2008

High Top Tea - 2008

Dysfunctional Par-Tea teapot -2013

Leather and Lace II, Ceramic teapot - 2008 (Makes me think of Stevie Nicks and Don Henley's song 'Leather and Lace' )

Sweet tea

Hanging Case Studies, Ceramic Hanging teapots -2014

 Fiddlesticks - 2013

Squeeze Me, Teas me  - 2009

Mel-Oh-Tea Us - 2011

I know I have been going crazy with the teapots but this is to be the last one.

Pest-Tea - 2010

Tea for Tuesday #17 - Tea Time for St. Patrick

It is the day where green is the colour to beat. So for this year's St. Patrick's Day I thought it would be nice to have a tea time of tea served in green tea cups and maybe nibble on some green food. Do not worry my friends there is no green mold on the food.

First we must have a shamrock teapot or two.

 Beleek tea set from Ireland is appropriate to have on this day.

Now let us pour ourselves a nice cuppa and relax.


Of course cucumber sandwiches seem to be a must. These are Chive Cream Cheese and Cucumber Sandwiches. Courtesy of The Chef in My Head blog.

There is also some matcha shortbread cookies that is courtesy of The Dirty Kitchen

An offering of a slice of Irish tea bread

Then there is also Irish tea cake

Now I think we should have some more tae to wash everything down with a wee piece of chocolate truffle.
