A Bit of This and That

Every cup of tea is an imaginary trip.....Catherine Douzel
A dear friend often closes her notes with this quote.
The picture above sends me on an imaginary trip to Paris.

Today is my 699th post, so I am celebrating with a bit of "this and that".
For anyone leaving a comment today I will have a drawing and announce
the winner on Monday. my 700th post.
It definitely will be a bit of "this and that", but it will include a notecard
with a picture of lilacs, two recipe cards with family recipes never given
out until this past month, some tea, a postcard from France, and
maybe some other surprises.  So come along and leave your
comments and if you aren't a follower, please join in the fun.

I've always wanted a bit of 'this and that'. Congratulations on 700 posts. And I've enjoyed and learned from each one of them.

Lovely picture, I especially like the blue glass vase.
What better way to escape than with a cup of tea.
This morning I had Earl Grey.

Susan said...

WOW congratulations on your 700th post... Yay! I remember when you started this blog, oh how they grow... ;-D

I love the colors and composition on this photo. You've got such an eye for these things.

Joyce said...

Amazing....that is alot of "writing."
The photo has some very pretty colors..and I love the look of those cookies. You know, I can't say I've ever eaten any like them before. Seen them..not eaten them.
My favorite thing is the look of the flowers in the vase. So Springy!
