Jeff and Ellie were under the weather this weekend so we stayed close to home and rested most of the time (they rested, Mama cleaned and organized).
Ellie has been really into watching Jeff and I do our morning routines in the kitchen. She always wants sips of my tea or coffee. Instead of telling her “no” once again, I decided to make her a quick little felt tea bag of her own to pretend with. She seemed to like the idea and the tea bag came out rather nicely for a quick hand sew.
Lots of indoor play with corks and ramekins and a runner Ellie found in the closet.
I worked on new decorations for the holidays with a cup of freshly brewed coffee (Jeff and I are generally tea drinkers but we thought we’d try fresh brewed coffee this week).
A kitchen nature display. A happy space of mine.
How was your weekend?
– joining Amanda over at The Habit!
A very Martha Stewartish weekend I must say…
I try. 🙂 Thanks Dad!
You made it another lovely weekend without the help of Martha..
i usually drink coffee first thing in the morning, the kids drink tea and now the almost 2yo says, “tea! tea!” so each morning we put a bit of herbal tea in her cup and let it cool off and she sips it like she’s fancy 🙂 like your felt tea bag idea!
how fun! I’m sure we will get there eventually. As for now, felt will take the place of the real deal for now. 🙂
i give wen some rooibos tea or even white tea (with almost no teine), i dont think it’s bad for them… and also some licorice tea. those tea bags of ellie are so cute!!!
We occasionally would let Ellie sip some chamomile tea too. She only likes water and Mama’s milk so far though. 🙂 I love licorice though! I will have to find me some licorice tea!
I love how handmade your home always looks.
I am a coffee drinker. I find tea gets cold faster and I can’t get the kick I need with tea alone. I’ve tried matcha and it still wasn’t strong enough. I limited it to 1 a week when I was nursing Aerilaya but with Makaia it’s 1 or 2 a day.
Adorable handmade tea bag!
Isis, thank you for that sweet compliment! I try so hard with my home. 🙂 What type of coffee do you prefer?
That tea bag! Love.
