Tea----------- one of natures wonders

I can almost hear you wondering,  what was she thinking  for  this page.
 so I will explain....

Legend has it that tea was discovered by
 Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 BCE
when a tea leaf accidentally fell into his bowl of hot water
and the rest is history.

I started off with my own base journal spread layer. A closer look would show random pieces of paper glued down  to  cover the whole area.
I then added some digital images.
This base layer might appear again sometime as it wasn't meant to be used  here.
I thought of the tea flavours I liked, but if I had to have one last cuppa it would be a good old brand of ordinary tea.

So, as the cup was now empty,
 it was off to put the kettle on,
 settle in a comfy chair

 to spend a little time
 with Meg and enjoy a fresh brew
and maybe watch more of the Olympics.

The page will fit two purposes for me this busy Tuesday--
I can go off and visit with friends for 
T stands for Tuesdays

and join in Gill's current theme at

which is Natures Wonders.

Tea is one of natures wonders that I would find  very hard to do without.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today and share a cuppa. you are all very  welcome.

My apologies if I have missed  or visited you late,  blogger is not showing all posts on my dashboard or feed list.  But I don't think I am alone with this problem.
My Try it on Tuesdays post will be along in a short while.

  3. Brilliant idea and brilliant page Yvonne.
    Love the vintage imagery that you have used.
    When I drink tea its plain - I can never find a herbal tea that I like enough to drink regularly.

  4. Wonderful page, great ideas there, enjoy your teas and i will continue to enjoy my coffee:). Thanks for another wonderful page for AJJ, and happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. Well, I'm quite impressed, Yvonne. Not only did you share a wonderful spread on tea, but you taught me something about it, too. It was certainly interesting how tea came to be a favorite drink of many around the world.

    Of course, I also love Meg's mug, too. She has such an adorable face, it belongs on a mug that you use for your favorite tea.

    Thanks for sharing this lovely art AND Meg's mug with us for T this Tuesday. It also made a great AJJ entry.

  6. Brilliant idea for the page Yvonne. I love to try these different teas.

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. Perfect tea themed page, love the pretty background. Meg looks quite content enjoying the tea break!

  8. Beautiful page Yvonne! I love both the story and the vintage style images you have used. Meg is adorable and your mug of tea looks just the right thing to have whilst watching the Olympics - it's been such fun to watch, hasn't it! Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J :-)

  9. Digital art is a mystery to me...but you've made a lovely spread. Colorful and fun! Happy T day!

  10. Tea is certainly one of nature's wonders, and I'll glad join you in a cup while we watch the Olympics. Happy T Tuesday!

  11. Very clever and lovely take on the nature's wonders theme dear Yvonne!
    You are so right too.
    Sweet picture of Meg and your mug of tea looks very inviting.
    Happy T Day oxo

  12. Although I am not a tea drinker I do love your page and the story of how tea was discovered! I am spending far too much time in front of the Olympics! Hugs, Chrisx

  13. Great page ♥ I am a tea drinker and a coffee drinker... the coffee in the morning to get me going and then teas the rest of the day... some days do however require coffee throughout the day :) Love the dog photo ♥♥♥

  14. This is an amazing page Yvonne. I love the retro feel- what a cute couple. And there is nothing better than a good cup of tea in my book. I wish I could see mroe of the Olympics but my tv provider isn't carrying the channel. :( Not a good thing. Enjoy-Hugs-erika

  15. One simply cannot beat a good cuppa! And I've just finished my first one of the day:-)
