A cup of Tea in peace........

 I wanted to share this vintage blanket and what I thought was a hat
and found out its a plant pot cover from the 60's......that I thrifted
over Christmas vacation.
 I got a bunch of paper whites at home depot for $3 that I have planted
for a little taste of Spring...to soon?
 Our temps have been way below zero at night, with a high of zero during the day
sooooooo cold!!!
 Must become a book owl with these long winter night ahead....
I bought these 2 books just for there covers......

Today has been long awaited the kids are back in school
and even hubby is gone today.....packed them all lunches and sent them on there
merry little way........long awaited peace after having them home for two weeks!

I'm off to see how all of you are doing.


  1. Our temps never got out of the teens today & tonight we will go below zero!! I feel like I am in Alaska too!!
    Love the pot cover.... When I first saw it I thought it was a hat too!!
    Have a Great Day!!

  2. That 'hat' is awesome!!! :-) Curious to see how it would look as a planter though...
    Over here it is soooo warm, for the time of year that is. I'm missing the wintry-feeling...

  3. Pretty books! Glad you've had some peace and quiet. Must admit I'm looking forward to a child free day on Thursday.

  4. Who would ever have thought that was a plant cover...hmmm? - Below zero, yikes...burrrr! Have fun enjoying the peace and quiet. xo

  5. Two weeks? You more than deserve a day alone!
    Read on, girl friend!

  6. Love it all Heidi!!! I'm still drooling over your last photos!!!!
    That plant cover is just too funny, LOL!!! Hope you enjoyed your tea today!! I'm still enjoying my kids!!! It's never to soon for spring in this land of ice!!! We need to do a spring dance!!! I'm going to do mine indoors!
    Chris :o)

  7. Oh, I love the pink glass. You could use that for a hat if you wanted! Enjoy your peace and quiet Heidi. It's not that cold here. Today it was 54 degrees. I talked to Amanda and she said it was 2. Brrrrrr! Stay warm up there. Diane

  8. Oh my what goodies you found! I love the owl! I remember those blankets!
    Hugs, Lisa

  9. It would have been so funny if you had worn it as a hat! Will you put a plant in it? Weird to know you are so cold when it's so muggy here, not to mention far too wet. Crappy summer so far.

  10. Blimey that is cold Brrrrrrr. Really like the 60's plant pot cover that is sweet. And those book covers are lovely. Im back at work today its going to be hard getting into the swing of it. The boys are back at school tomorrow. Enjoy your peace and enjoy the rest of your week, dee x

  11. You find the neatest things, Heidi. And, come on over for a cup of tea with me when you can. You deserve some "down" time. You have my number - right? Wonderful posts - always enjoy your finds and photos. Love and hugs. K

  12. I am intrigued by the plant cover! It certainly is very 60s-ish and I've never seen anything like it! Love, love, love all your French enamelware especially your header and in the previous post. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  16. Happy New Year to you and your family.My daughter is doing a treck in Lapland at the moment trying to catch pictures of aurore borealis for me! i hope she won't be tooooo... COLD!

  17. Our paper whites are out already!Good job they're not outside at the moment, never mind hanging on to your plant pot cover, more like hang on to your chimney pot...my garden looks like a tornado hit it! I think I may have written one of those books in your titles, in a past life,lol....I'll leave you to guess which?!!Have a good rest of the week in peace, Heidi.x

  18. i can only imagine how good it must have felt to reclaim your home for yourself. :)

  19. Oooh, I love all those pretty shades of green. The paperwhites will be so pretty when they start to bloom!

  20. Oh wow, that is cold. My husband is in the snow & war in Afghanistan & i'm here, pool side, or at the beach, soaking up the sun & fun, it's so weird how a married couple can live such seperate lives.
    Our children get long school holidays over Summer (now) & mine go back last out of the entire country, no idea why my territory is on it's own time line, but we're loving it. Love Posie

  21. You found some sweet finds! I am growing some paperwhites too, but they are taking their time. Perhaps they know just when to bloom - when things are cold & gray!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Wow! seriously cold. We are experiencing very hot weather here. So glad to find you, I will follow on my way back so I can revisit again. I hope twenty twelve is everything you wish for. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  23. i'd use it for a hat, deffo.
    and i dig buying books for their covers! now surf the net, for great things can be achieved with book covers!!!
    oh, btw? congrats to your son! forgot to mention that in previous comment... ;)))
