T Stands for Thanksgiving for my Health

Hebrews 13:15  "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name." 

Good evening!  I hope the ones in the U. S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  As it is still November I am posting another thing for which I am thankful.  I am thankful for my health!  Sometimes I hurt, like tonight, as I have been unpacking decorations, putting up the tree.  All of this took a lot of lifting, twisting, stooping and other contortions of the body.  But I can walk, talk, hear, see, and craft!  I am thankful that I can put up our tree!  It is lit and some of the decorations are on it, the china cabinet is decorated and part of the upper cabinets in the kitchen have decorations on them.  When we moved here six months ago,  I had gotten rid of a lot of stuff.  So, I will be going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to get some poinsettias.  I think I threw them out last year because they looked so ratty.   So here is a photo of my Christmas teapot for Bleubeard & Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover for T Stands for Tuesday.  We link  up with her and our post has something drink related, like a teapot! :)

Also, today, I am linking up with Tag Tuesday! We were to make a tag choosing items from  a tic tac toe board of items.  I chose stenciling, punch or die cut, and lace.  My stenciling was a failure!
But, I think it still looks okay on this tag. The die cut is a TH stamp and die, and the life adventure is a stamp in that set, too. It is the first time I have used it.  The cities stamp is from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions.

I wanted you to see the cities.

And I love this sentiment!

I will be making another tag.  I like this challenge.  Maybe a Christmas one.  I probably will use this tag on a scrap page.  What do you do with your tags?

Thank you for stopping by!  Waving to the T-Gang!

First, I am thankful we have so much in common and can share a drink each Tuesday. Second, I love your amazing teapot. I really screams Christmas to me. It is beautiful.

I think your tag is lovely. I am very impressed. Is the Eiffel Tower also one of Joanie's? Seems as if I've seen it there before. It is really fun, too. I don't often make tags because I have no place to put them or use them. I wish someone would come up with a good way to show how to recycle them.

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely tag and your Christmas teapot with us for T this Tuesday.

I saw your comment about the Brick Yard. I took my friend Kathy there as a Christmas gift (along with a Mrs. O'Leary's gift card) one year. Here is how we spent the day:

It is the season to decorate, but it can be so much work. I need to finish putting my decorations out. That is a fantastic teapot. I think it is very pretty and festive. And I also love your tag Sharon. I can tell you had fun when you made it just because it came out so nice. Have a great T day. Hugs-Erika

Wow, your tag is fantastic!! Love the beautiful colors and the theme!
I keep all my tags on rings by subject or in a plastic storage case.

You know what they say, "If you don't have your health, you don't have anything." I'm very thankful for mine just like you, Sharon. I love your Christmas teapot, but don't know what the apple thing is in front of it. Candle snuffer? Bell? lol.

Lovely tag. I stopped making tags because I didn't know what to do with them. I have mine all hanging on a piece of ball chain. I just looked at them and thought ... hmm, some of my large ones would make nice birthday gifts as door or wall hangings.

Happy T-day! Eileen xoxo

Health is indeed something to be thankful for :) I like your teapot. What a bright spot for the season! Happy T Tuesday

A beautiful tag. I love the metallic smoke in the background of the tower. And your Christmas teapot is so beautiful!! I loved reading about all the things that you are thankful for. Health is so important. It seems as though so many people I know are struggling with cancer and other health issues at the moment so I find I am extra thankful for health at the moment.
Happy Tea Day,

good idea to put the tag on a scrap page, otherwise they float around uncontrolled like here;) happy belated t-day!
