Tea and Gratitude

One of my special moments this holiday season was to meet my mom's dear friend who has also been a huge giver of vintage linens and things for my business!  Janelle is a SWEETheart, and our few moments of thrift storing in SoCal this December were cherished by me!  At the end, she gifted me with this Beautiful handpainted pansy tea pot that I had fallen for!  along with another bag of her awesome vintage linen finds, which are soaking, as I write this, in her special recipe that I have found to always work, and am going to share with you all! But first a little gratitude list on this cloudy rainy day!
  1. Somehow, there is enough!
  2. the gift of being able to create treasures from remnants
  3. i am loved
  4. my angel dog, Bowser 
  5. stacks of vintage fabric waiting  to be transformed into little girls' dresses and ruffle pants
  6. the pause and a cup of tea
  7. My daughter asked me to take HER  thrifting today                                                    
  8.  my Husband has a job interview tomorrow!
  9. a new decade to write upon   
  10. Inkspot, Lily and Chulita, our 3 cats!                                                               
                                     I love handmade cotton lace

                                                                            These will magically become clean in Janelle's SPECIAL RECIPE!  read on...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

The only thing I have to add to this, is that some really stained pieces have needed a day or 2 of soaking before they really get stain-free!  IT IS A KEEPER RECIPE! It's kind of like forgiveness and acceptance:  if i soak in them long enough, even some pretty bad stains can be removed!



  1. I will be praying for your sweetie's interview. Please pray for us too. We are going back to India's endocrinologist today. We are needing some answers as to why she get so sick so often. Hoping to find a good immunologist.
    Did I tell you that Ahnalin is sewing now????

  2. Thanks for the recipe! It is a keeper. I love that gratitude tea towel. Did you embroider it?

  3. Thank you, Laura! Yes, I did embroider the gratitude is for sale in my shop!
