My Friends in Canada






It was 42 degrees when I got up this morning.
Probably no big deal for some of you, but for us on the Gulf Coast it felt really good!

With temperatures like this I can:

-break out the crazy, fun slipper socks
- have oatmeal for breakfast
- hot chocolate in the evening
- wear a light sweater in the morning

I already start my day with a hot cup of tea.
This morning it was Harney and Sons, Cranberry Autumn,
a black tea with cranberry and orange.

I enjoyed a couple of cups of Cranberry Autumn in my new tea cup that I found at
It is a porcelain cup and saucer called Khaki Bird by PIP (Passionate Inspirational Products).


Khaki Bird


They make bowls and teapots in other colors.
Really cute!

I'm sticking with the teacup.

I'm joining some tea parties today:


and the lovely Judith for Mosaic Monday.

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea.

And, before I forget, I'd like to thank my friends in Canada for this nice cool weather.

You're very welcome! Today is the first time I've opened my laptop since our move, and it was lovely to pop by such a pretty post. Enjoy your cuppa!

You are most welcome, can I send you some of the snow we had yesterday.

Dotti said...

Be still my heart! Cranberry and orange? One of my favorite flavor combinations.

Janet said...

We've cooled off, too. In fact last evening we had our first fire of the season. It felt so good.

Love your teacup and that tea sounds delish.

Jane Strong said...

Forty-nine degrees here near LA, CA this morning. I love it; makes me feel so good and energetic. I agree that northerners might loathe the coming coldness, but as a southern Californian it is a wonderful feeling.

Your teacup is so beautiful! And I love the saucer with the little flowers.
Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week!

What a lovely morning you have described, a beautiful way to start the day. The tea cup and saucer are delightful, and thank you for the link. I'm going to have to check that place out. Have a great week :)

Love your little birdie teacup, Snap! I've had the cranberry autumn tea before too. Harney and Sons make a good tea blend and that's one I enjoy.

It's so beautiful! I have tea cups I never use, I need to start using a pretty one. It got cool all the way down to Florida last night! Hugs, Diane

Michelle said...

It is the perfect season for hot tea!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Such a sweet teacup. I saw the H + S Cranberry Autumn at our bookstore when I bought some English Breakfast and wish now I had picked it up too. They certainly make quality tea.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Snap.

Barb said...

Another lovely cup and that tea sure sounds good. You're getting chilly there, Snap!

Deb said...

Adorable tea-cup and "You're welcome."

That's such a lovely bird that you selected. I'm sure it works quite well on you cooling mornings and evenings.

My husband & I discovered this teacup while we were window shopping on a very rare get-away time for us. We bought it and a pink version of the same cup & saucer to use as our coffee cups for our time together at an ocean front hotel. I love this cup & saucer and forever after the pair we bought will remind me of this precious time my husband & I had together.

Oh what a delight to read this post !

Love the teacup and get a kick out of your joy at the cool weather. That being said, I'm hoping the temps warm up before we get to Florida next month! I'm already tired if wearing sweatshirts ))).

Rajesh said...

Very beautiful tea cups and bowls.

What a darling cup and saucer you have shared today! We have had cooler weather too and it is snowing west of Denver in the mountains! Have a great week Snap!

I just saw the weather on the news - Brrrr. Here on the west coast of Canada it's quite pleasant, although a bit wet.
Your new teacup is so pretty. Love the soft grey and the bird. Enjoy and stay warm!

Glad you are enjoying the cool weather and the fun stuff that goes with it! It is always cold here this time of year, but it is perfect for a cup of hot tea! Love your new cup and your tea sounds yummy!

Hi, Snap...thanks for coming by...
I LUV your new teacup...and that tea sounds like one I'd love, too. Must look for it at the grocery store..or maybe at a tea shop....xoxo

kitty said...

I'm so thankful for the cooler temps here in the Dallas area, too, Snap! Your teacup is a beauty and the saucer looks like pretty calico fabric. I think I'd love the cranberry tea. I'm going to need to look for that flavor.

ann said...

Such a pretty cup. It would easily become a favorite. We had a cool, rainy day in Colorado. Finally feels like fall. Canada does send us some unseemly weather, but then we do need moistsure. Hope it warms up for you.

Cranberry Morning said...

For most of December through March, we will long for warm temperatures like 42 degrees. Glad to hear it's a nice reprieve for you. That is such a pretty teacup. I love the sweet bird. Enjoy your fallish endeavors and your new hot tea.

Beth L. said...

That is a very special teacup. Had never seen anything like it. And yes, our Canadian friends are always so generous with their cool weather.

Donna said...

What a beautiful and unusual tea cup and saucer.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I love all those things about Autumn too Snap!
Here we're in Spring but it's still cold... I'm waiting to wear my sandals and no cardigan!

I love your sweet birdie tea cup, such a pretty colouring.
It's nice to see some new designs coming through.

Thank you for visiting me and leaving your comment.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I heard an aortic blast is headed over Canada and much of the US next week so we will need plenty of hot tea to help keep us warm!

Sharon Chapman said...

Terri said...

It's 38 here this morning and I love it! Your teacup is beautiful!
