I asked myself what does FB have that SP doesn't. The answer games. People of all ages spend their time doing games.

SP has responsibility and commitments for grown ups. People who allow themselves to be consumed by games aren't grown up even people of our age.

Carol, that is probably true. My sister and daughter can't understand why I don't do FB. I spend my time on SP because I need it and it is an asset to me.
Besides, our computer gurus tell us to avoid FB.
I can't believe how many people are on it so much of the time!

Get rid of facebook. lol I think facebook is the problem with a lot of inactivity on spakpeople. I know people who were on sparkpeople went to facebook and never have come back to sparkpeople. I'm on facebook but I would never leave sparkpeople.

Finished a camouflage hat for a friend of my daughter’s. Started my Yoyo afghan, crocheting small little yoyo flowers that will use up my old yarn. Still deciding on what block design I want to use that starts my Block of the Month project. Need to get busy on it as I’m already a month behind. *LOL*

There are so many designs to choose from. How does a person go about creating a crochet stitich or block design uniquely their own. Have you ever created a crochet design (block or stitch, etc)?

I was reading about the origin of the word: tidbit.
It is a tasty morsel but originated as titbit.

titbit [ˈtɪtˌbɪt] esp US, tidbit
noun
1. (Cookery) a tasty small piece of food; dainty
2. a pleasing scrap of anything, such as scandal
[perhaps from dialect "tid' tender, of obscure origin]

(I can imagine our forefathers wanting to update and 'clean up' the word a little in Puritan times, perhaps??)

Well, it was an outdoor tea party. Men and women attended. Many folks had a costume on (assorted) and most gals opted for hats.

The host used stacking tables and stacking chairs but dressed them up with fabric table cloths and chair cushions.
Vases with local flowers were kept low for conversation but shaped squat and round or square, so they didn't blow over. (Aah-ha)

It was a delight to the eyes to see the assortment of tea cups and saucers. Real ceramic tea pots each had their own cosy. (I would have suggested that and done some sewing if need be.)

There was supposed to be a questionnaire with answers on the back of the page. Too many folks were walking the grounds to bother. I tried to snag one copy... but it wasn't in my bag when I got home. (Maybe it was seen, removed gently because they needed it for the next day???) I wasn't watching my reticule, as I helped move the chair cushions before it rained at the end.

People who were there WANTED to have a nice time and I think they did. It was calm, entertaining and nodded to the past. There was an actress reciting 9 scenes from Austen books. She moved from table to table and we got to choose our passage from a chart. A roaming violinist added a lovely touch. (She looked 16 yrs. old)

Last night I made up my tea hat. Too much sun and I get sick.
Saturday June 23 is the outdoor tea party. I checked some photos of the last 2 years, and it looks like I'm in for some fun.

Counting the hours....

Sorry that I haven't been very active on the Daily Tidbit. I'm still working on the Jane Austen dress. What year? 1808 or so...

This tea party that I have ticket to is a fund raiser and they will serve 400+ people in two afternoons. That's a lot of tea and sandwiches, I expect.

Ladies, I wish I could find a chocolate or banana chocolate white tea up here. I am keeping my eyes open!

Enjoyed a cup of Red Velvet Chocoloate tea this week from Republic of Tea. First sip was a bit strange, but have to say it really grew on me as I finished the cup. Still prefer their banana chocolate, but this was an interesting change. Something so calming for me with chocolate teas

Hi, would like to join this chat, too.
Tell us about the Jane Austen Tea Party. Are tea parties becoming popular??? A church near us had on their signboard they were having a tea party the other day. Sounds like fun!!!

I am thinking about going to a vineyard in the next town that is hosting a Jane Austen Garden Tea Party.
I have to get my act together and buy a ticket... wouldn't that be the best way to start this plan?

Yesterday I found a luxury grocery store and their Mighty Leaf selection did not include the roasted rice tea. Anyway, it was a nice adventure checking out a store that would be a 'no-brainer' if I was to make up a food basket/ gift basket.

I love that name! I will have to look around to buy a box of that flavour. We have Mighty Leaf up here but the selection is never very good.

I am a fan of Earl Grey also. Before bedtime, I usually drink Chamomille that is bought in bulk. I use a tea 'egg' infuser and it is all flowers and stems. Zzzzzzz

Favorite? I like Earl Grey and English breakfast, tho I have green tea daily for health.

I just moved a container of
geekalicious by Chris Pirillo that belongs to grandson. It is Japanese green tea blended with popped and roasted rice. Made by Mighty Leaf. I bet not many have heard of or had this tea.

Purses were seen as far back as the paintings in Egyptian tombs. In later times women started to carry purses when pockets went out of favour.

Drawstring bags were known as reticules and often had tassles, beadwork, embroidery and lace on them. They were made as early as the 18th century and they were still popular with the flappers of the 1920's. Women could crochet them, sew them from brocades, fashion them with net, velvet or needlepoint.

The drawstring might be a ribbon, a fancy rope, chain or leather strap. It seems that fashion allowed a lot of ingenuity to go into a lady's bag.

Hi, tea-drinking friends!

I feel like I haven't been here in forever....so let me get back to work!

Did you know?

In Vietnam, iced tea is often served free in restaurants while customers decide what to order.

Thanks for the healthy recipe. Would you use the beet and the carrot in a raw state? I think my blender would make a coleslaw consistency, rather than a drink....

I just read an article on Heirloom Sewing and was amazed that many sewing ladies still like to design baptism gowns, white delicate baby bibs, dainty white bonnets and the like.

The original hand sewing was not done in Victorian England, but rather with nuns in France, starting in the 1860's. Very tiny stitches on cotton, linen or wool would be joined together with lace and embroidered "entre deux". (between the two).
Ribbons would be woven into some of the fabric with embroidered holes. Miniature pleats added surface texture. Light colored embroidery was added for interest also.

Heirloom sewing is being duplicated these days with our zigzag sewing machines and our sergers too. The work in 2011, is not as intricate as the pieces accomplished historically, but it can be done with speed now.

These fussy details can be seen on fancy blouses and cool, crisp, cotton nightgowns. Look out for heirloom sewing details!

More Civil War Curiosities by Webb Garrison.

It seems publisher, Erastus Beadle considered the common soldiers who spent weeks in camp, as a vast new market. With the help of editor Orville J. Victor, he printed and distributed enormous quantities of dime novels about such characters as Dick Turpin and Red Rover.

The paperbacks of today owe their lineage to the Civil War “yellow backs” as they were called.

Huh...I didn't know about the anti-gas function of mint. My ex used to find it soothing, though I usually think of it as a stimulant.

Mint tea helps soothe headaches, and helps 'ground', if feeling 'spacey'.

DH is still encouraging me and getting me proper foods etc. I am lucky. He just found an old letter under the porch. Much is gone, Rest tells of the children and me 45 years ago. Wish we could read it all. Tells of others kindness to us....like Mr. Newton buying sand for DS. Things and kindnesses I had forgotten.

PS What does this say about my housekeeping?

And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived
Makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every To-morrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day! "

Today at the Victoria Art Gallery, I heard a lecture from a Japanese artist who constructed a tea room from discarded styrofoam!

The dimensions were correct with a small crawl-in door, but I think I would rather visit a tea room made of bamboo, tatami mats and paper dividers.

We now have a tea room in our area that calls itself the Bluebird. It's an old Victorian, 2 stories tall with an attic and a tower filled with antiques and offering a light menu. You can order, then meander through the rooms while waiting for your meal. Very nice.

Keep Sparkin'!
