Spotlight Friday: Tea cup and mice

Yes, I did finish my kiddos Advent calendar. And it is already stuffed with little goodies, no sweets. She is into those “shopkins” things right now. They trade them in School like hot cakes. That was the easy part. To pick the right colors and the right stitch and which order took a little longer, because it was not my decision to make. This is what she wanted and got :


Now I just have to find some more little items for my other kiddo to get that calendar completely done.

While I am sitting here thinking about what I could write about today. All I had on my mind was a cup of tea. So I guess I will go make me a good cup of tea right now, in my favorite mug. Well second favorite mug. The one I loved and had for over 17 years got dropped by my little one about a year ago when she was cleaning out the dishwasher.  It was one similar to this one,  Yes, I really like those Diddl mice. Don’t know if they still make them.

It was a gift from one of “my” girls from the foster home, where I worked at. I think my daughter knew that this cup was my favorite and  busted out in tears when she heard it hit the floor. Poor thing, nothing to worry about, it is just a cup.

It is funny how coffee or tea tastes better out of your favorite mug, or is it just my imagination?  I think for me it is the combination of the tea and the cup. Drinking tea calms me down, gets me ready for my day or end the day and reminds me of times sitting together with my Dad enjoying a cup.  And the cup, I have a few given to me from dear friends, takes me to the place where I met that specific person or when I was given the cup or memories like that.

Most of the times I drink tea, some times some cappuccino, I have to be careful with those because I am Lactose intolerant and have not so nice side effects.

Maybe that is why I started knitting mice?    I am not sure. I know, odd combination.   But for some reason it comforts me.miceBride


I did have a pair of Hamsters growing up, never mice.

So, while I am sipping on my tea, in my second favorite cup. I will search Zibbet and see what I can find with Tea cup and mice:

So do you think it is still a weird combination?  Do mice and cup of teas go together for you yet?  You see now, why they make total sense to me!  What is your combination that other people look at quirky?
