I was recently delighted to received a ‘Kreativ Blogger’ award from Jamie D at Tea on Tap – see her very kind mention here!
It really is a pleasure for me to blog about tea, and knowing that other people enjoy reading my musings, comments, occasional recipes (and occasional rants) is very special. So thanks to all of you who pop in here regularly to see what I’m drinking and writing about at any given time – I appreciate your company and comments, always!
In keeping with the requirements of this award, I hereby list seven of my favourite things:
c\_/ my husband and the other wonderful members of my family;
c\_/ tea, because what’s the point otherwise really;
c\_/ my cat Beren, especially when sleeping on my lap with his chin resting possessively on my arm;
c\_/ my friends, wherever they are across different states and countries;
c\_/ Melbourne (no offense to Canberra, but Melbourne is just better and it is SO GOOD to be back);
c\_/ chocolate; and
c\_/ walking in the sunshine.
I’m also meant to nominate seven other blogs to receive this award… which is tricky because there are so many wonderful blogs out there on tea and other matters, but here goes in no particular order:
TeaSpot NYC – for Ana Dane’s creative and delicious recipes, equally succulent photography, and dry sense of humour, this blog never fails to delight;
The Half-Dipper - for glorious photography and beautifully-written reviews of tea and more;
Twilight Spells - Ruth makes the most gorgeous candles out of teacups, and as well as posting about her two etsy shops she puts together wonderfully creative compilations of other etsy items;
Tea Geek - for refreshingly accessible evidence-oriented articles on tea and related topics;
Canberra on the Moon - Something is odd in the nation’s capital... and Southpaw doesn’t hesitate to point it out;
Chocolate and Zucchini - for more delicious and creative recipes and a really interesting series of posts on French ‘edible idioms’;
Cake Wrecks - for a spot of sheer hilarity in your day, take a look at this collection of professionally-decorated cakes gone horribly, horribly wrong… where creativity meets the Bad Idea Bears.
Enjoy (with a cup of tea in hand of course)!
