At-tea-tude~Tea Cup Tuesday...

When I retired in December 2010 I received this cute Red Hat Lady figurine from a friend. The lady sitting in the cup has a unique style of creative fashion. Her attire along with her pose certainly express a relaxed, carefree, fun attitude. I think she is a perfect example of the women in the video Terri shared this week at Artful Affirmations. Click here to see the post called "What's So Special About Getting Old."

Last week my daughter emailed me some vintage images she had found online. I knew I had to share one special one with all the Tea Cup Tuesday fans. It is so cute. I printed out a few of the images in different sizes. I used smaller images to attach to tea bag envelopes for Valentine table favors and a larger one to make a Valentine card.  I wanted to share the finished card on this post but I ran out of time. It needs a few more finishing touches before it's ready to send it to a special friend. 

Go grab a cup of tea and have joyful day!

  13. Oh my, Linda, I love everything on this post, from the red hat lady to those adorable Valentines. Did you make that doily envelope? If so, do share, please, please, please.
    I miss the music on my page too. I think it loads the page a lot slower. Sometimes I just cave in though because I do love it.
