A New Mug

Hey T Gang ladies- another Tuesday has arrived.
I have a new mug which I like a lot and wanted to share with you today.
I love the dog paw and the human foot. Seeing I have 2 dogs that I would take every where with me, if I could. :) The mug comes from a blog/Facebook page called Loki the Wolf-Dog. 
And I have new favorite tea.
It is great for spring and early summer with a fantastic strawberry smell and taste. I like to try out new teas on occasion to shake up the typical cup I drink.
And I also have a new page to add to this month's challenge at Art Journal Journey. Gill is the hostess this month and she picked Elegance and Grunge as her theme.
I call him Mr. Inspector. And he works perfect today because this Inspector never goes anywhere without his trusty canine. Maybe he needs one of my Don't Go It Alone mugs.
It been pretty quiet around my world the last couple of days. Works for me.
Happy T day everyone. Hope yours is a good one.

Your mug and journal page are perfect together. And quiet is what you need to heal after your surgery. quiet and making art. Happy T Day!

OK, I thought that was a BEAR paw when I first saw it. Then I realized I simply had bear on the brain. That is a gorgeous new mug, and I know how much you love those dogs. Be sure to save the TAZO tags. They have such great inspirational sayings on them. Of course, I'm sure you know that. I'm not a fan of strawberry, so I'll let you drink all this tea. I bet the spent bags are beautiful, though.

Your Mr. Inspector is a hoot. I love his little dog, and he looks just right for the size of the page, too.

Thanks for sharing your adorable AJJ entry AND your AWESOMELY AWESOME new mug with us for T this Tuesday. At least I know it's Tuesday in your world.

I love you post from your beautiful mug to your tasty sounding tea to your Mr. Inspector art work - fabulous! Your new mug is perfect and your page is such a lovely tribute to our four-legged friends. The wording you have used and the border you have created are wonderful and highlighting his trusty canine with the yellow paint circle was a magical touch 😀. Wishing you a Happy T Day! J 😊

I love your mug. We don't have dogs (I would love to have a dog but we travel and move around too much) but I understand the sentiment.
You Mr Inspection looks very fierce. Who is Mr Tibbitts? The dog? Or the person who wrote the quote?
Happy T-Day,

Love your new mug Erika, and I love how it ties in with your wonderful journal page!! Sounds like you chose a lovely new tea to try too. Have a lovely day and enjoy your countdown to the almost end of the school year!

Not sure which I like better...the mug (I do love dogs and miss mine).... or the journal page!
There has been a hiccup in the escrow of my buyer's house, so I am breathing easier, but still packing things that can stay in storage for a long period......antique china......Christmas dishes...nick knacks
Thanks for stopping by my blog
Happy T-day

This mug looks really good and the tea seems to be yummie - and I adore this lovey page --- this yellow circle makes it all! Enjoy your quiet time !
Thank you for this fabulous page to Gill's theme Erika!
Happy T-Day!
Had much to do today - so I sadly wasn't at ELizabeth's party today.

What a unique mug, Erika. Handmade, I would guess.

I love the quotes you put on the elegance and grunge page - so clever and the page as well.

Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

Great mug Erika - I also thought of bear paws first after seeing your post about the birdfeeder and then Elizabeth posts with that great bear image.
Fabulous page for AJJ (thank you x) that border is great and I love the imagery and words - I wonder what their story is - made me think it could be a Sherlock Holmes mystery.
Hope your week going well.

Love your new cup and your journal page is great!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog too. Hope you are feeling better every day and will soon be back to yourself and that goes for the hubby too ♥

I'm really liking your elegance grunge pages. The graph paper background is terrific -- it makes such a nice substrate for the various things you've been using it for. I really love the Inspector. But then, an inspector and a dog just seem like a perfect combo!
