Tea time

The flowers currently blooming in my apartment include last week's snow roses as well as a bouquet of white carnations I got myself on the flower market. Most of the flower girls haven't started their business yet, and the range of flowers available is still quite limited, but even though most of them are tulips I decided to go with the carnations this week.
Turns out they're just perfect to fit my small crystal vase, spreading a soft scent around their fluffy blooms, as well as a little contribution to the Friday-Flowerday at Holunderbluetchen.

As long as fluffy clouds are replaced by a white foggy layer however, it takes more than just flowers to get me through the day. How about a hot cup of tea?

Knowing my friend is prticularly fond of one certain flavour, I brought a bag of "Wild cherry" tea from Düsseldorf. After the holidays, I finally found the time to wrap it properly, using a sweet mouse digi from Meljen's designs combined with a cherry-themed background paper. 
The little cutie fits to the tea flavour as well as to my friend herself as we refer to her adorable little girl as a "little mouse".
As the red and blue colour combo is quite outstanding, I decided not to add any other embellishments on my project. After all, what matters is inside the bag anyway ;)
