Pink Roses

…Hope you all had a good gubble gubble Thanksgiving day…

Who doesn’t like Roses ???

I guess you already know that I’m in love with flowers… especially roses !! I really feel that Red roses symbolize the love (like in Valentine’s day). White Roses represent the purity and innocence (like bridle roses). And Pink roses Symbolizing gentility, femininity and soft romance.

Emma Goldman said : “I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” It’s exactly what believe too !!!

Here are Some Pink roses lovely & Romantic items from my store on ETSY.                I’m also offering special Black Friday – Cyber Monday special gift comes with any purchase from my store (cute hair pin).

Thanksgiving Greeting Card From Your Kid …

Here I have lovely idea (from preschools) for Hand Printed Greeting card that you can make with your kids. It is fun and very easy. I’m very sure your kids will love it!! I also have to admit that i still have this side of “childhood” in me. (I was a preschool teacher before… I enjoyed every minute of it. (still involved from time to time )).

So You will need : acrylic color / Brushes, white paper, colored card stock, scissors, glue.

First Paint hand palm. I painted of the hand yellow and the fingers are each a different color for the turkey feathers…

After the hand is painted, you can make a print on the white paper .

Once the hand print is on the white paper, wash hands, and wait for the paint to dry.

Now you can decorate your Turkey with googly eye or as desired, then cut the paint and glue it on colored folded card stock paper.

TA- DA-M  So Easy .. So Fun ..

 

Make sure to check my store on Etsy VintageByRachel  and start your holiday shopping early with Thanksgiving Special Promotion. Buy any item and get Hair pin as a “Give Thanks Gift”… Now until the end of Nov.

See You next time …. xoxo   Rachel

Time for Tea

 

So…winter is here. This is the perfect time for tea.

I love tea. I mean, I really LOVE tea. I remember every time when we used to visit my grandma, first thing she did, was offering us tea. No matter if it was during winter time or on a hot summer day. I loved her tea. It was “grandma’s tea”. Even years after when I grew up and used to make myself tea in her house, it didn’t had the same taste… It’s kind of tradition in my family that we serve tea (with sweets) almost after every big family meal or holiday dinner.

Tea is the most common beverage in the all world, but no one is sure of its exact origins.

I’m very fascinated by all of thous tea parties. Victorian tea party, English afternoon tea, and of course the Tea party in Alice in wonderland.

Victorian tea parties

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Victorian Tea Party would be the most elegant of all. The Victorian era was a period of extravagant entertaining and everything was done lavishly. Afternoon tea was invented by Anna Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), one of Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting. During this time, the noble classes ate large breakfasts, small lunches and late suppers. Every afternoon, Anna reportedly experienced what she referred to as a “sinking feeling,” so she requested that her servants bring her tea and petite-sized cakes to her boudoir. Many followed the Duchess’ lead, and thus the ritual of afternoon tea was birthed. In fact, a culture of sorts emerged around the tradition of drinking tea.

Afternoon Tea Time

It’s means a light meal typically eaten between 3 o’clock and 5 o’clock in the afternoon of course served with Scones or light sandwiches or assorted pastries.  Yum….

When you’re feeling sad & blue
And have no clue what to do
Sit down and have a cup of tea
And a hug or two or maybe three
Feel those troubles melt away
And start you on a better day.
~Paulette

(wouldn’t a tea party be lovely right now?)

P. S. Are you a tea person ? Which tea is you favorite ?   My favorite one is Jasmine or Earl Gray with fresh mint leaves.

…. I’m going to make a tea Now !!!

See You next time …. xoxo   Rachel
