T Stands For Tuesday-Tea Packets

Hi everyone! After a wild 4 days I was actually able to sit down and think about doing something crafty.  No better time than to show this project than with Elizabeth and the rest of the T Stands For Tuesday gang! Invited by my friend Valerie from Bastelmania, I am also linking to Art Journal Journey whose theme this month just happens to be collage!
I've been hoarding tea packets from tea I've purchased, been given as a gift or as a free sample.  I decided they would make the perfect collage for the first page of my tea journal. Not a lot of thought; just placed them as I picked them up. I was thinking I might do this on the last page/cover, too, so I better get drinking!

This was the scene out my kitchen window at 5:30 am Sunday morning.  I know it is dark, but it is the best photo of the moon with clouds that I have ever managed.  We were up to drive to New York City where our daughter attends Grad School in Lower Manhattan.  She was moving out of the dorm and into an apartment in Brooklyn, NY.  With only one semester to go (can we all shout Hallelujah!), actually only two classes left, she no longer had enough credits to be eligible for housing. The drive and move went smooth as can be, and her boyfriend was a big help again in carrying the heavy things up two flights of stairs.  Well, anyway, I digress, because I really just wanted to show off the photo!

Happy T Day and thanks for stopping by!

There are definitely some teas I'd love to try. Especially the coconut cocoa and the chocolate banana.

Your tea packet collage is super.
Best of luck to your daughter!
We enjoyed that same pretty moon in San Francisco. Fun how the same moon shines on everyone.
Happy T Day dear Debbie!

Awesome tea collage...and pic of the moon. I am not proficient enough with our camera's settings to get good night-time photos...so this looks excellent to me! wow, an apartment in Brooklyn sounds exciting...your daughter is launching a new chapter. Good for her, and congrats to you. happy T day!

Rita said...

That's about as close as I can get with moon pics using my camera, too. Beautiful, though. Love your teabag collage pages! Yes, having the same on the back pages would be so cool! Happy T-Day! :)

great up cycling!

I saw the moon through the trees from my office window, but there was NO way I was going outside to try to take a photo in the cold. Yours was super.

What a great opening statement for your Tea AB. It will also make a great ending, too, I suspect.

This may be a challenge for your daughter as she finishes her studies. I wish her luck in her new place, and hope it is in a safe neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing your Tea collage, your moon shot, and your daughter's adventures with us for T this Tuesday.

I am way late for Tuesday. I like your tea packets for a tea journal though and that moon picture is wonderful.

I'm not sure how I missed your T Tuesday post, but when I saw your comment on Darla's blog I followed your link to see what I'd missed. I love what you did with your tea journal collage. And that photo! A lovely shot of the moon. :)

What an exciting time for your daughter, and good parents up at 5:30! I had hoped to see the meteor showers this past weekend, but we have had cloudy, thick skies so can't see anything. Drink your teas in good health inside where it's warm and cozy...
