Steep Right Up!

The sun finally came out 
and I enjoyed the day by walking up to the Village.

Book and Starbucks

A stop at the new Starbucks for a Green Tea.
Sitting outside with my book.

The book, LADY COP MAKES TROUBLE by Amy Stewart
is the second book in the Kopp Sisters Novels.
GIRL WAITS WITH GUN was the first in the series
and I loved it. The books are based on the Kopp sisters'
real life adventures in New York in 1914.
Great covers, too!


Painted in Rice Village after Hurricane Harvey 
by street artist Gonzo247.
This hand embodies the resiliency of the Houston spirit
and even has a little Texas embedded in the center of the palm.

Bunny Teapot

Speaking of tea (!),
I wanted to share my new tea cup.
A dear friend surprised me with this cup and spoon 
from Mud Pie.
"Steep Right Up" to spring!

Opening Day

"Steeping Up" to spring also means
it's time for college baseball!
This was opening night at Reckling Park.
I like to get to the ball park early!

That's my This and That for the last week. 
Wishing YOU well, much joy and sunny skies!

Thanks for visiting the Garden Spot. Love you bunny and Easter inspiration. I am ready to get my Spring decor out of storage.

I just love your new tea cup! Mud Pie products are so much fun. We have the canisters. They are too pretty to use...can't believe I said that but it's true. :)

"Steep right up" - that is adorable! I'm going to look for those books - I've never heard of that series and I've just been looking for something new.

I love your Bunny teapot and pretty new mug with its own spoon, Snap. I have not had a green coffee drink at Starbucks as yet this season--hopefully, I can try one soon as it looks like a great treat!

The books sound great and I just went to the Library and put myself on the wait list for the first one (in Kindle format). I love being in Florida and checking out a book from our Oregon library! Thanks for the recommendation. Almost forgot to come back and thank you -- and tell you I enjoyed the rest of the post too. Spring looks lovely at your home!

Walking to the coffee shop/market area reminds me of my summer life in Oregon, where we live downtown. Not so easy to do here in Florida, but there are compensations. (This is the time of year when I start to get homesick though.)
