Always be a work in progress

An early  " Hello "  to Elizabeth and the T-Gang!
I hope all the ladies are well !
You are invited to serve yourself at the hot beverage sector of my kitchen
since I am out and about the whole Tuesday - will visit you all later.

 I drink a lot of tea and decaf as you know and recently just for fun I tried out to paint

on one of the discarded(used) teabags.

and I took an extract of my little painting as well .
It's the piece at the very top.


  1. I am always in awe of painting on tea bags. This is fantastic. What amazes me is their strength. But what got me is how dark your bag was. It's brilliant. Thanks for sharing your art and your beautiful tea bag with us for T this Tuesday.

    I really LOVE that drawer you have for your tea. Is that part of an addition to your new kitchen?

    1. Yes teabagpaper is such a strong material even though it seems so translusent and thin.
      Yes that's one part of the new kitchen.

  2. Oooh how wonderful is this, I love teabag art,so cool

  18. so fabulous your teabag Susi !! I like it very much, great !

  19. Deine Teebeutel-Zeichnung ist fabelhaft! Coole Idee!
    Ach, ich wollte ich hätte meine Teepackungen und -beutel auch so schön geordnet! Mir fallen meistens alle entgegen, wenn ich von oben eine Packung herausnehme :)

  20. total schön! Blumen im Schnee... ich heb mir die dinger ja auch auf (was eigentlich nicht?!), aber gemacht habe ich noch nicht viel damit.
    heute bin ich am zwiebelschalenfärben von brillenputztüchern (ich könnte kurse in der psychatrie geben;) die machen doch auch immer kunstkurse und so... klingt doch gut als bewerbung).
    aber was will man an so einem eiskalten trüben tag auch machen?
    liebe grüße!!!

  21. I love it, Susi! Also what you did with it for the header, "Always be a work in progress." Good thought for the day. Happy T Day! XOXO, Eileen
