Tea and Treasures at Grandpa's

We are visiting with my father Anna's Grandpa, before our big move to the west coast. Anna has a special relationship with her grandpa, when Anna was born we were actually living here with my father we had recently moved back from Alaska so this is Anna's first home. We are still enjoying Tea where ever we seem to be and our Tea time looks a little different, with our teapots and teacups packed up for our move.

We enjoyed Rooibos Tea with a little milk along with some enjoy life gluten free cookies. My Dad has a wonderful odd collection of mugs. Anna chose the vintage Star Trek mug that when heated shows the Captain Spock, Captain Kirk, and the doctor beaming in! The heat activates the image making it show up. So it was enjoyable watching them beam in on the mug hehehe!



I chose one of my Dad's old work mugs. He is retired now but I think this mug is probably about 20 years old. This is a great mug it looks like it may last for another 20 years! It says get enthused with Tower Power lol!! that must have been great motivation in the office.


Anna enjoying some gluten free cookies. Lucy hoping Anna drops one on the floor!

We also went out to the thrift store before our tea time so we had fun looking at our thrift store treasures during tea.
We found some new to us but old books to read. .50cents


A hand knit sweater vest! 1.00$

A very old marled knit cardigan looks like it is from the 70's $1.00

And we looked at it all through our new glasses and boy did everything look so nice crisp and clear hehehe!!

We hope that you have a blessed Thursday filled with much sunshine, lots of laughter, warm family love, and a spot of Tea!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

  1. Dear Heather,

    I love the tea mugs! Too bad Scotty can't beam you all to your new house :) . The glasses are very pretty, as are the ladies behind them.

    Blessings with the move and all,
