Name . . . Your Faves

3. The meaning of your name…does it suit you?

According to Behind the Name, Melanie means "black, dark". I've known that for years. I also know I was named after Melanie Wilkes, just like the article says. But wait a minute, I've already done this one for Mama Kat. You can read it here.

So let's start again. 

5. Share a list of some of your most recent favorite things.

1. New teas to try. Okay I might have gone a bit overboard on this one.

2. New tea mugs. I really only meant to buy one. But they came in sets of 2 and they were really cute and I had a gift card . . . 

3. I'm still in love with my new/old Hoosier cabinet.

4. This little corner in my office/nook.

5. This new recipe that was super easy and yummy, especially for a cold winter night. I served it with apple/chicken sausages.

  1. What a fun post, Melanie! I personally think you can never have too many teas or adorable mugs (I LOVE those fox ones!) And a gift card to boot! But of course! :) Glad to be visiting you from our 31 Day Survivors 5 for 5 link up. Have a blessed day, friend!

  2. If you haven't tried that comfort and joy blend from republic tea, you're in for a treat. :)

    What a fun prompt.

    1. I'm not usually a choc. tea fan, but this one is yummy with a bit of demerara sugar and some milk. Might have to try it with warmed frothed milk!

  7. You simply cannot have too many teas and tea cups. It is just not conceivable. Fun post!

    1. Totally agree. Unfortunately I have a small kitchen, so storage does become an issue :)

  8. Fun! I always wonder who's going to pick up on my "repeat prompts". :) After so many years coming up with new ones I do enjoy going consulting old lists. You're so loyal to me!
    Let's do tea.
