(tea) party of one

green tea waiting on the kettle

i often have tea parties just for myself.

almost as often, i leave a cup of tea to steep in the kitchen only to remember it an hour later.

last week i remembered in time and took photos to share. huzzah.



my south bay shawl served as an impromptu living room picnic blanket.

Drinking tea on my living room floor isn't a daily habit, but I do have a cup of tea nearly every day. I think my favorite part is wrapping my hands around a warm mug and feeling the heat rise through my body. It's such a soothing moment.

What's your daily ritual?

Not pictured: 

Spilling tea into my new rain boots. Bah. How will I ever keep my feet dry if I'm pouring liquid into the boots???

My attempts at taking a photo with both hands in the picture. I only succeeded in snapping photos of the ceiling. (Sorry about dropping the camera, K. If we get a new one I promise to take better care of it.) 


  1. What lovely tea things you have! So delightful.

    I hope your boots and camera are okay!

  2. What fun....Your own tea party! I'm trying to think of what makes up my daily ritual. I'm adament about having a family dinner each night. My husband works evenings, but I somehow manage to get the kids to the table around 5:30 each evening.

  3. I'd enjoy a cup of tea with you...that's a lovely teapot and mug...and shawl...and pretty flowers!!!

  4. Gorgeous shots! I have a lovely little green tea set as well. I haven't used it in a while. Maybe I should have a little tea time this afternoon! My ritual, when I'm home during the day, stealing a few minutes in my favorite chair with a book or my knitting while my babes nap. Lovely!
