Tea Tuesday!

Hi Everyone! I'm glad I made it in time to link up with Bluebeard and Elizabeth's T Tuesday party.  I'm not really drinking anything right now, so I decided to show one of my "keepsake" mugs.  This photo mug shows our little cutie at age 4 months.  This is the very same "baby" we just moved into Grad School yesterday.  I promise not to bore you every week with the same stuff, but honestly, that is all that is going on right now! I did try to play around with clay today, but it is so humid, all I managed was some clay beads before the clay was just too soft to work with.

Here is a closer look at the beads:
Clockwise starting at 11:00 are a rustic set of leaf striped beads, pretty pink squid beads, gold foil green with an imprinted Asian-style design, and basic black with peacock color foil and my own impressed design.

Looking forward to visiting everyone! Thanks to Elizabeth for hosting.

Awww such a cutie on your mug, I bet you don't use it!

Your beads are gorgeous.

We had a few nice days out with Beth last week, I am recovering now!

looking at your beads is not boring at all.
I wish I would have had mugs made with my kids on them. Such a sweet keepsake.

You realize this now qualifies as a collectible, don't you? Such fun to see how your sweet baby has grown into an adult, off to further her career and education in the Big Apple.

I thought it was humid in my house. At least I'm not trying to bake clay. And of course, I LOVE the original design you created. They are all simply fabulous. Keep wowing us with them, please.

And have what's left of a very happy T today.

Oh that baby! It is amazing how quickly they grow. Best of luck to the gad school student.

How cute is that baby, they do grow up to fast. I love these kind of cups!
Your beads are beautiful, can't pick a favorite so love them all.

Thanks for sharing your Tuesday with us, enjoy the rest of your week.

She is your keepsake, for sure. Sweetie pie.

I like the variety of your beads. Hope the weather gives you a humidity break soon. Around here, it's changed from hot and humid to chilly at night, autumn on its way!
