40 Tea Tuesday


My BFF turns the big 4-0 tomorrow. Since she's across the country from me I decided to SPAM her snail mail box this past week. I'm sure she'll get me back next month when I going the club but its all in good fun. Neither of us are freaking out about 40...it just doesn't seem possible. I feel like I'm 20 something. 

I sliced open the side of a water bottle and filled it  with a packet of flowers seeds, a knit dishcloth, crochet scrubbie, a wine cork, confetti, a few fortunes and a note.

The note explained the contents... 
In summary it said:
If I were there I'd give her flowers, instead she'll have to plant her own. 
If I were there I'd help her clean her house, instead she'll have to have her family to do it for her. 
If I were there I'd share a bottle of wine but sorry I drank it.


I also made a series of postcards with little snarky remarks all in jest of course. 





I realize this post doesn't really have anything to do with tea... other than the fact that Sandy and I often have a cup of tea and a chat over the phone. 






Stop by Kimmie's blog to see some "real" tea posts.
