Coffee or Tea? and I've been tagged!

Pin It Now!

Teacups...they're just so feminine aren't they? I'm a coffee drinker and I prefer to drink my coffee black in a mug but when I drink tea, it must be in a teacup with cream and sugar! It's hard to do decorative things with coffee mugs but teacups are like little works of art.

I really need to get more teacups in my collection they are just so much fun to decorate with!

I've been tagged twice this week. Once by Amanda, The Cottage Contessa (I love that name) but Amanda, I can't figure out how to get to your blog. When I click on your message it brings me to your profile page but there isn't a blog listed. Amanda gave me a "Nice Matters Award" I've lost count on how many of these I've received but I always say you can never be too nice! Thanks Amanda! Updated: Here is the link to Amanda's blog
I was also tagged by Priscilla, from Priscilla's cottage for the name game.

Here are the rules: Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My name is Cynthia Susan...

S - Sumatra Coffee from Peets. My son just sent me a pound of Aged Sumatra from Peets...LOVE IT!

U - Understanding...something I always try to be.

S - Single...but wish I was married to a wonderful guy.

A - Affectionate...Hug your kids! I love to hug my kids!

N - Nutella...love Nutella and I'm really hungry right now so I wish I had some!

I'm not going to tag anyone but if you want to join in please consider yourself tagged!

I'm too a coffee drinker, but tea cups do have a special place in my heart. I love how you displayed your tea cup. Have a blessed day

You deserve every Nice Matters award that comes your way, Cindy. I mean it!

That's a cute game...I think I might have to play along, too.

What a nice way to display teacups, which I also like to drink my tea in. You have such beautiful photos in your posts. I notice your dog is named Beau. So is mine! My Beau is a miniature poodle.

Your teacups are so beautiful and dainty. They remind me of you.

And as far as Nutella goes, sweetheart I can't get enough. I just made a cake with it. It's almost sinful it's that good!

I love the tea cups under glass. What a great idea.

I just love those tea cups(does it matter that I drink my coffee from dainty tea cups?!). Cindy, here's a link to my blog. I'm just new to all this, sorry you couldn't get there before!

I hope that link works and that you enjoy your visit!

I love your teacups and I'm also a coffee drinker but I keep one teacup and it's saucer in my china cabinet because it belonged to my Mom and her Mom before her.

Love the teacups and cloche. I have been considering buying a cloche and you just sold me on it! It was fun reading the name game and getting to know you a little better.

I have a small tea cup collection that belonged to my Grandmother that I cherish. They really are little works of art and I love how you have some displayed!

You richly deserve a Nice Matter award dear Cindy!

Umm...Nutrella is so good!

Love how you displayed your little teacups! Also love that window mirror that your dad made for you. Daddys that make things are so special ~ I miss mine very much, but have wonderful creations of his all around me to make me smile each day!

Love your beautiful blog & your romantic home.
