You're my Cuppa Tea.......

Today is Tea Day....well we're 14+hrs ahead so I had mine yesterday.
My sister and her girls came round so we all had some nice warm tea.
Last week I bought some White tea which I usually have late at night, its really refreshing and very light
so my sister tried that and I had my black tea with milk.

my niece Styliana having some milky tea too!

I found this vintage Lipton tea ad in a magazine, its perfect for the occasion!....and look no dregs! drink to the last drop!

In the afternoon I craved some more tea so made another cup for myself. I made these biscuits using left over chocolate easter eggs ...skip the choc buds/chips and crush some chocolate easter eggs instead....I cant keep eating chocolate all day...so I'll eat biscuits instead!
check out all the tea day pics here

Oh and some very exciting news!
Ruby St designs were looking for some design team members so I sent them 3 recent pics of my ATCs and collage and I got picked to be guest design girl for December 07! Im super excited...scary too but it should be fun!


  1. congratulations, anastasia! great news, i can't wait to see your creations, you are going to do wonderfully.
    i love the idea of a day full of tea celebrations. i think using the eggs for the cookies is the cleverest thing ever. your niece is a cutie.

  2. Love the tea and biscuits. The biscuits you made look exactly like my mother-in-law makes...and they are portuguese biscuits. Love, love them! Congratulations and I will be so interested to see what you create.

  3. I'm so excited for you Anastasia! It makes me want a cup of tea...Congratulations.

    Gosh it all looks lovely, what a gorgeous spread! Can I pop 'round for a cuppa if I'm ever in the area?! :)

    Congratulations! I can't wait to see what you create!

  6. Congrats on the design team spot!! I love tea and tea cups. I recently got really into Chai tea. The spice is something I really enjoy! I think about immigration all the time and I decided that since my personality was formed a lot because of my being Mexican-American, that a master's degree in that subject would be great! It also helps me to squash some ignorant Americans' thoughts that all Mexicans are poor illegal immigrants. At any rate, love the tea!!

    Hello Anastasia, I enjoyed sitting down with you at the tea party! Is the white tea you drink low caffeine? I would love to drink tea after 11am but can't sleep even if i have weak tea? Do you think i should try white tea? (green, white, black - when will there be purple tea?) from Natasha xxx

  9. Tea day looks like a lot of fun. Congrats on the designer thing! That rocks! :)
