After going to pay your unbelievably high tax bill today, please join those non partisan groups around our states today protesting the ever increasing, out of control -raising- of our taxes as well as the unbelievable amounts of money being spent on the so called "stimulus" packages. Of which, our taxes will be raised again to pay for- (yes it will be paid for by us- in taxes and increases in the cost of goods- don't be fooled).
Afterwards, lift up a cup of tea to our country for the way it use to be and was originally intended a nation for the people, by the people raised upon the great Constitution of the "United States"- NOT Congress! A capitalist nation where every one is afforded the opportunity to produce and provide and make a living from the sweat of their brow and be rewarded for it and reap the benefit of it and not have to give it back to government!!! Then lift a prayer for the direction in which it is headed a spiralling downhill direction. People wake up! Really, take a moment to look at ALL aspects of what is going on- study yourselves, don't just listen to the media- research, seek knowledge, seek information. Then stand up for America!
May GOD & CHRIST bless this nation again.

AND THE WINNER IS............

Okay, so I was really hoping for a big response not that I really have that many readers, but I certainly hoped for more than three. So THANK you to those who did participate and I really had a dilemma on which was the best. Really! So I wrote every one's name on a piece of paper, wadded them into tiny balls and then selected one. And here is the winner- Angela! So send an address to mail it to and I truly hope you enjoy it. And, again thanks for the participation!!

Pillow Craft from Old Tea Towels


AFTER The fabric was so fragile that I tore part of one & had to mend it. Fortunately it turned out just fine.

To get in on the latest trend lately, I'm giving away this tea themed scarf. To enter, just leave a note between now and Thursday evening on why you like tea. Make it funny, a poem, a lifestyle- whatever- just enter & I'll look over each entry and decide which I find the best! I'll post the winner on Friday. Good Luck!

Another Pretty Find

At the same little antique mart in Newnan where I found the silver and plates, I found these sweet tea towels and of course HAD to have them as well. I am going to make these into throw pillows for my "Pink" room. I'm using the pink and white striped fabric that's in the background. Aren't they sweet!
