A year ago, Bleubeard and Elizabeth began an organized, weekly, Mr. Linky sign-up, tea-inspired party. I've loved all the new blogs I've found through it. Even though most of the bloggers there are craft mavens and I'm a craft drop-out (or maybe because of that), I've enjoyed the beautiful work I've seen. I've learned about new kinds of tea and coffee, learned quite a bit about gardening, enjoyed some virtual tours through other people's yards and neighborhoods, and "met" some very nice people.
Elizabeth asked that we
"Dig Deep into your T Tuesday posts, and pick ONE POST you consider a favorite"and the request sent me looking back over all my posts with the tea/coffee tag. There's actually not too much to them... just photos of cups and mugs and beverages mostly, with occasional outings to local restaurants and a random few videos. The post that saw the most views was Sweet Coffee, I Adore Thee: an Ode to Coffee (with 108 views) back on 9/3/13. The one that got the most comments was Lemon Curd (with 19 comments not counting my responses) on 6/10/14. My very first post with this tag was way back in 1/2007, which had a photo I didn't take and a mention of National Hot Tea Month. I posted on tea and coffee every few months that year, but between 4/2008 and 1/2013 I had no posts at all with that tag. It's interesting to look back every once in a while.
It's hard to pick a personal single favorite from my T Tuesday posts, but right now I lean towards The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock from 4/15/14.
Or maybe Tea and Turnips from 1/23/13 before Elizabeth added the Linky to the weekly posts at her site. Or maybe my post on the Belz Museum of Asiatic and Judaic Art from 6/3/14. See? I couldn't do it!
It's been a fun year in terms of "T", and I'm already looking ahead to the coming parties. Thank you Bleubeard! Thank you, Elizabeth!
