Okay, a household item. I’ve got a whole household of items. What should I photograph today? A busy day and at 6pm I am still without a photo. Feeling a little chill, I headed to kitchen for a cup of tea. There it was. My subject. My favorite pansy teapot and etched pansy mug. A warm cup of not-so-good chokecherry tea with very good chokecherry honey, and my tummy was happy and I was warm again. My tea drinking friend, however, found a new way to keep warm. Meet Lil’ Bit, Connie’s 9 week old Cavalier King Charles. She loves to snuggle on Connie’s lap, under the blankie, for her naps. Better than a hot-water bottle any day.
