Five on Friday

I've slowed down on joining blog parties but do like to keep in touch with a couple of hosts like Amy who has Five on Friday for sharing photos, life events....anything at all.
Ever had the feeling you're being watched? Some prankster put a plastic goose or swan head high in this cedar tree and I found it funny and worth sharing.
Apparently the spring show of lilacs is amazing on Mackinac Island and I purchased a souvenir teapot with them on during my trip. English Breakfast tea is in my cup, a gift from Nancy who owns The Rosemary House Tea Room.
Some of my friends will already have seen my autumn theme mixed berry pie on FB. Making an easy pastry dough and learning to use cutouts were the topics for a workshop I attended. 
Recently I babysat grands and Topaz came along to help. It sure tuckered him out!

October 10 is our Canadian Thanksgiving and I'm looking forward to turkey with all the trimmings.

  9. I laughed out loud at the goose and poor Topaz -- babysitting is hard work! Love your new tea pot ... so nice to have an item you like to remind you of your trip. Every time I see your pie my mouth waters! Happy Friday!

  10. I've cut back on parties too Judith, I just can't keep up with them, as fun as they are to join. I love that goose in the cedar! He looks so real ;) We had a couple of Canada geese honking at us from the roof of a nearby plaza, they looked ridiculous up there. Your berry pie looks yummy! I use cutouts for my pies too, but they are quite tiny compared to yours. You'll have to share any tips you learned at the workshop. Enjoy your turkey with the family :)

  13. Happy Thanksgiving to you. Hope you have a wonderful day. The pictures look wonderful. I've been up to Mackinac Island but not in the Springtime. I bet it is really pretty.

    Happy Five on Friday

  14. The goose in the shrub made me smile, Judith! Your new souvenir teapot is a beauty and I'm sure the tea tastes so good. Topaz is so tuckered out, poor thing! Happy weekend to you!

  15. So funny that swan head coming out of the conifer, haha. I'm touched by watching Topaz, the sleeping beauty.

  17. Ho I love your teapot you bought on Mackinac Island! I saw a red geranium teapot there on the island, but decided I really did not need it! Now I wish I had bought it for remembrance of the special time! That goose looks like something I would do! Add a touch of whimsy! Have a great Thanksgiving my tea friend!

  19. And Happy Thanksgiving to you, too. I was on a tour in Canada once during the Thanksgiving season, and we went out to a house and had Thanksgiving dinner almost exactly like I'd have in the states, except that the servers were dressed in long-ago costume and there were no lights. We dined by kerosene lamps and candlelight. A wonderful experience I shall not forget. I think we were in New Brunswick that day. To my eye, they have the best autumn colors of anywhere on the North American continent. Almost as if someone arranged the trees in patterns.

  21. What a fun (the goose head), beautiful (the teapot), delicious (your berry pie - I think I need to find some new cookie cutters) and very cute (the sleeping Topaz in his elegant bed) post! :) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! ♥

  23. Happy Thanksgiving! The mere thought of turkey and all the trimmings has me hungry. And there is always so much to be grateful to God for.

    Your pie looks so pretty...would you consider sharing any tips? Love the teapot. Are you planning a return trip in lilac season?

  24. Happy Thanksgiving. I have always wanted to have a Thanksgiving celebration when the Canadians do because it's hard to get my whole family together on Thanksgiving day.

  25. The peeping goose made me smile. The pretty lilac teapot is a great memento from the Michigan Tea Tour. I wished that I had picked up more tea-related souvenirs when I used to travel.

  26. Good morning, lovely Judith! I wanted to stop by and wish you a most blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you have a splendid day :)

    Hugs and joy to you!

  27. Judith, I hope you're having a lovely day! AND not working too hard! Love that teapot and would love to see the lilacs on Mackinac Island -- it's been too long since I visited the island.

  28. I hope you had a lovely holiday ! I am catching up here and how in the world do I miss you at Face Book? I would love to see your recipe shares. I get tired of the same old political noise. It is lovely to see you here Judith. Have a beautiful and blessed week. Joyful Hugs, Anne

  29. Hi Judith!!!!! SO sorry I have been so missing in action! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. We in the States have it all wrong - THIS is harvest season - a month from now we should be in Christmas mode, but we can't till after Thanksgiving. Makes me crazy - it would be so nice to be in Thankful mode versus Spookey Scary mode. I should write Congress and get it changed. Those few weeks between our Thanksgiving and Christmas is INSANE - it's not enough time, it isn't.

    ANYway, lovely post. Hilarious goose head - haha - hope you are well. Hugs. ♥♥♥
