Cast Iron Kettle Warmer and Trivet

We were in World Market today and found this cast iron kettle warmer. The lid may also be used as a trivet
Also found this sweet bird teapot and tea cup

Verse for today :)

Genesis 1:20-23

The Message (MSG)
God spoke: “Swarm, Ocean, with fish and all sea life!

        Birds, fly through the sky over Earth!”
    God created the huge whales,
        all the swarm of life in the waters,
    And every kind and species of flying birds.
        God saw that it was good.
    God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Ocean!
        Birds, reproduce on Earth!”
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Five.

Cast Iron Teapots

 Cast Iron Teapots are lovely to make tea in, I am told if you make a flavored tea in a cast iron teapot it is best to always use the same pot for that flavor, each time you use the teapot it becomes more and more seasoned.

I found these cast iron teapots in a Japanese china shop, they were lovely but heavy as all get out. :)   I am looking to put one on my Christmas wish list. 

These individual teapots and tea mugs come with the there own strainer so you can brew your tea (teabag or tealeaves) in the pot or mug then you just remove the strainer and enjoy your tea. My husband loves the color red so we picked up the red mug for him.

My sister Loves purple so I took this photo just for her :)

One of my favorite passages in the word is this one.. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

New International Version (NIV)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Buckingham Palace

This is a paiting of Buckingham Palace that I found in the Tea shop in Epcot at WDW.
The paiting below is the Balmoral Palace 
so beautiful!!

 These teapot's remind me of my Grandmothers garden flowers in Canada. The teapots were sitting so pretty in the tea shop with the frosted window's in the background

The Rooibos Tea is one of my friends favorites :)

I loved this sweet tea towel, definitely a conversation piece.

Psalm 37:4-5
Take delight in the Lord,

    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;

    trust in him, and he will act.

Tea Jewels

This teapot has jewels set in it that capture the light, it has a rosebud lid and vine handle

Luke 6:38

The Message (MSG)
37-38 “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier. Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.”

1 Peter 3:4

 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.

The wall of Tea!

Wall of Tea!!

Romans 8:38-39

King James Version (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

A Cup of Disney

The Lords Prayer

Matthew 6:9-13

The Message (MSG)
7-13 “The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this:
Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
    as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
    Yes. Yes. Yes.

My Tea Maker

This is my tea maker that my husband picked up for me at Teavana.
 It makes delicious tea, perfect temperature too!

It is very simple to use 
and fun to watch 

 My most favorite tea is Earl Grey Creme
My Nephew Chad gave me the Earl Grey Creme tea one year for Christmas and I have not found anything that I like more. This tea has the most wonderful aroma and flavor.

Todays verse:

 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Philippians 4:6-7

A step in the right direction

Putting on Armor... The Message version of Ephesians 6:11-18 reads very simply, I just love it!

Ephesians 6:11-18

The Message (MSG)

A Fight to the Finish

10-12 And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
13-18 Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.

Miss Tea Mouse is sporting a hand made beaded purse,  lace fringe shawl, clip on flowers and an adorable lace trimmed bonnet

2 Samuel 2:6a

New International Version (NIV)
May the Lord now show you kindness and faithfulness;

Clay Mask

 I finally found a facial mask that does not make me break out the day after I use it! These Freeman Facial Masks are WONDERFUL!
My sister and I tired the Avocado and Oatmeal together and it was refreshing and made your face feel fresh and smooth.  
I recently tried the Dead Sea Mineral mask and I think that one is my favorite of the two if I had to choose... and that is only because the Dead Sea Mineral has a fresh scent as the Avocado and Oatmeal does not offer a scent

Mark 5:36 has been a verse that I have been clinging to lately... 
Mark 5:36 
"Don't be afraid, just believe."

Life can have so many struggles.. this verse is beauty to me.

Porcelian Teapots

 I was wondering in TJ Max down in Fort Lauderdale with my mom on Sunday afternoon and found these pretty porcelain pots.  

Reading for today

Galatians 5:22-24

The Message (MSG)
22-23 But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.
23-24 Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way. Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good—crucified.
