What happened to the 13th.?

PC Is telling me it is the 14th today.  I saw all the Tim Holtz Halloween temptations this morning.. and wasn’t rushing out the door to find, said items.  What is happening to me? Those of you who are familiar with my creativity swings… the first sign of cooler weather coming, (meaning fall) my colour palette changes to earth tones, and often I turn to dark creepy and drag out my tombstones.

There are many sides to our personalities, often we find one we are comfortable with, and that is the one we wear. However you and I both know that each of our friends, or acquaintances, bring out different facets of Me Myself and I.

Think about it. How often will you react in one way with your partner, but should a friend or someone else have said or done the same thing…  your reaction would be different.  There are times we are not even honest or comfortable with ourselves.

How others see us is not how we see ourselves, nor is either version a true one. Ours is the one that counts.  Ours is the one that has to be worked on, tweaked, and sometimes revised completely.

PL Calendar day 14    – Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for YOU.    Always be mindful of the situations of others, not just your own.  To have a good relationship with those round you always think of what is important to them too.

Tea on the Market

p1000307

Looking for a place that is welcoming and well stocked with tea.. You have come to the right place if you have discovered the TeaStore@ 53 York Street in the Byward market right in the heart of the city, minutes away from Parliament Hill, and the Rideau Shopping Center.  These two ladies are regulars, they bike down on week-ends to enjoy a visit and their favourite tea and baked goodie.  During the summer they are able to add the delicious fresh fruit that is abundant in the market stalls nearby.  In winter they soak up the warmth inside of the shop, where they get to sit in a sunny area, either at tables or if lucky to get it the small red sofa.  Cosy as all get out..!

The shop is now owned by Joshua Savoie, who obviously has done a great job in maintaining the welcoming ambiance of the shop, he is gaining new “regulars” week-days and week-ends. The young hostess that was there when I visited Saturday was very knowledgeable about the teas, and products sold in the shop.  Had I had more time, I would have welcomed a lazy visit watching the activities from outside at one of the tables or inside at the big bright window.  Perched at the window table =^_^=

Ahhhh and what was I doing there… this charming shop, *teastore* has started to sell the cards I make for the Perfect Liberty, Funky Monkey Boutique.  As you know the FMB has a sale only 2, 3 times a year,  The cards are available all year, however we are at 1010 Hunt Club (near Airport Parkway)… so that is going west on Hunt Club if you are at Bank, you turn right to go towards Airport Parkway, Riverside etc.

Remember that October 15th. we are having our fall, Funky Monkey Boutique sale, 9 a.m. 1 pm.  After that it will be after church on the 21st. and by appointment. We have a lot of Diva jewelry, brand name purses, Xmas village what nots, funky bits and pieces for your Halloween outfits….some crafty items.  I will have a few of the scrapbooking/card making extras there, you never know what you will find.

Don’t be disappointed, come early, there is only so much room in the FMB.  What is that expression “the early bird gets the worm”…

Look at all the teas, this is just a portion of the tea being offered at the * teastore*, you can follow them on facebook and twitter, their web address is   http://www.teastore.ca

Everyone loves a good cuppa tea, there is so much to explore and see on the market. and the new updated Rideau Center..  Shake the shoppers and the big price tags, wander over to the  * teastore * 53 York Street, (next door to Lapointe’s)  enjoy the brew and the view.

Everyday is a new beginning
