Color Me Happy!

Last Thursday [July 21st] I went to Afternoon Tea at a new-to-me venue in Hartland, MI. It's called Secluded Celebrations, and I'll be blogging about it tomorrow.

My friend, Linda Pudlik, coordinated the outing because the owner, Grit [Margaret] Francis, was a member of the tea society, An"tea"Quers, which Linda founded and ran for many years.  At the tea, Linda gifted me with a tea themed coloring book, Garden Tea Party, and a box of 50 colored pencils.  

Coloring is relaxing and therapeutic, and highly popular with adults right now.  I used to enjoy coloring as a kid, so I know I'm going to enjoy this adult coloring book by Stephanie Fitzer Coleman [].  My girlfriend, Lori, told me she recently received a tea themed coloring book with scriptures accompanying the pictures.  I'm going to have to check into acquiring that book too.

Fellow-blogger, Angela, at Tea With Friends currently has a tea themed coloring book giveaway, and she found the book at Dollar Tree.  I immediately went and purchased two for my two youngest granddaughters, and one for myself!  Isabella [who will soon be 11]  is coming this Friday to spend a few days, so it'll be a fun activity while she's here.  Have you gotten into the coloring book craze?

Also at the tea, my girlfriend, Lori, gave me a Grace Kelly book that she bought at an estate sale.  I haven't done a presentation about Princess Grace yet, but I've blogged about her and I know she was a tea lover.  She was truly a lady, and her life ended much too soon.


  1. Those coloring books do look like fun! I just went to Dollar Tree today and got the one Angela blogged about. They also had some cute magnetic refrigerator notepad/2017 calendars that had teacups on them.

  2. I'm heading over to Dollar Tree as soon as I have a few free minutes! I want one of those coloring books for myself, too, and one for my granddaughter who loves to color.
