Tea Cake At the Tea Parlor: Daily Art Practice
I recently received this beautiful Willow Tree figurine from my sweet friend. She sent it in remembrance of our daughter, who has been with Jesus 8 years. Last week, we had her heavenly- birthday party. I decorated for a party, made cinnamon rolls, and of course we sang Happy Birthday! I can’t wait to meet her and see who she looks like. One day!
I didn’t get around to posting last week due to continued busyness. I am SO longing for our regular routine to return. With spring here, I am reminded that I need to start planning my garden. We have had some beautiful sunny day as of late, but the chilly air is still hanging out. It’s hard to believe that gardening-time is just a month away. First, I need to get in and clean out the beds. I was lazy at the end of last season, and I didn’t clear out the dead plants. How about you? Do you clean out your beds in fall or spring?

My watercolor building today is Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown, New York City. You can see the reference photo HERE. I enjoyed the various materials on the exterior of the building, along with the bright yellow and the string of lanterns. If I ever visit New York City again, I would love to stop in for a meal.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is this Pu-erh tea cake. It is a fermented tea that I forgot I had. Today sounds like a good day to have a cuppa.
Happy Tea Day,
