Tuesday Miscellany

Instead of more cruise pictures today, I have several miscellaneous items to share.

Remember that tea I was searching for? Emily in France sent me a different brand in the same delicious flavor, and now Jette has unearthed the original brand. She sent me 3 boxes (along with some other nice goodies, including a lavender sachet from her garden). So I'm set on peche-cassis tea for a little while. Yay! It smells so delicious!



Right before our cruise I took a glass fusing mini workshop with some friends. I received the finished pieces yesterday. I just have to attach some findings to the earrings:

The large blue thing is a suncatcher with a thin pocket for a single flower stem. The red star thing is also a suncatcher. The rectangle with the bumpy dichroic glass is a pendant; the glass matches a pair of earrings I bought a few years ago.

Glass fusing was really, really fun. I intend to learn more soon.

And today is Thing 2's 5th birthday. Here she is modeling some of the princess gear she received. She is definitely princess material.

Hi,

I came across your site while searching for "peche-cassis" tea. I had it while living in France for a little, and I am obsessed with it. I cannot find it anywhere, and saw that you knew some more about it! Do you happen to know where I could purchase it online or anywhere?

Thank you!

I'm afraid that this tea seems to be pretty much impossible to find outside France. I couldn't even find an internet source. I got mine--two different brands--from a couple of generous people in France who were willing to mail me some.

This tea is sooo good; I can't imagine why it's so hard to find.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. It is delicious. If I do happen to find it (which I am determined to do), I will let you know where!

Thanks again!
