It's going to be a quickie today as I am still ill. I have had the mother of all tummy bugs for on and off two weeks. I'm not eating and I'm dehydrated and fed up! I have got pills which do help but I still can't eat much without feeling nauseous. Yuk.
I am sitting at my desk utterly exhausted but I will carry on and finish this post.
Here is my postcard which arrived this morning (I'm writing this late Monday night):
Yes, they are Christmas cookies. In German Weihnachtsplätzchen. Aren't they pretty? The sender of this card, called Lisa, writes that she has just spent the afternoon making a batch with her friend.

Of course today is T-Day, so I will link up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard at Altered Book Lover. To do that I need something drink related. Lets see what i can find...
I love turtles and have a Pinterest turtle page. Here are a few images of turtle tea pots:
This one and the next are a bit similar:
This one has matching cups:
These majolica ones are nice too:
They are made by Minton if I am not mistaken.
And this is a cutie:
My favorite is the very first one. Which one do you like best?
That's it from me today.
Happy T-Day all of you,
