Last time I mentioned treating myself to a pumpkin spice latte from a coffee shop. That kind of "designer coffee" is too expensive for everyday consumption, though. This tea is a nice alternative for getting that autumn flavor at home and not blowing the budget. :)
The little hang tag on each tea bag says "Cup of Joy," which I hope you can see in the above picture. It's appropriate, because drinking the spicy, warm tea really does give me feeling of autumn joy.
The path from autumn joy to Christmas joy is short, and I have already started working on some handmade Christmas gifts. I can't show any of the gifts that I'm making now (just in case the gift recipients read my blog, which would ruin the surprise), but I thought it might be fun to show you some gifts that I made for last Christmas. Today, I'm showing you a Christmas ornament that I cross-stitched. I adapted the design from the book Cross Stitched Cards for the Holidays. The two robins and the word "joy" were actually three separate patterns in the book, but I thought that they would look good all together.
What kinds of projects have you been working on lately? I look forward to catching up with you when I visit your blog!
