Paint Party Friday - Tea for Tracey

To celebrate the Holiday Season, Paint Party Friday is hosting a Tea for our friend Tracey who has been recovering from breast cancer surgery and chemo therapy. It is great to read her posts - seeing that despite her challenges, she seems to have retained her wonderful sense of humour.

Since Tracey has been painting pictures many of her friends' tea cups, I thought I would try to paint two of my favourite Christmas mugs (full of soothing Moroccan Mint tea).

Tea for Two for Tracey


To Tracey, and all my PPF friends, I send you my warmest holiday wishes for a wonderful time with family and to a very HEALTHY 2014! 

Love
EVA

P.S. To any other of our PPF friends who have been suffering health problems, my deepest wishes for a return to good health!

P.P.S. Sorry for the lengthy absence, I don't know where this year has gone... and while I have dabbled a bit in my art journal and worked with Kristin behind the scenes at PPF, I never seemed to get a post written to participate. Hopefully this is the re-start of painting regularly!

P.P.P.S. A cleaning fairy, Tracey? Thank you , thank you - that is exactly the help I need!!! ...maybe if I can find my desk and paints beneath the clutter, I can party more at PPF!

  2. Love the cups... I think I can smell the tea too! :-) Now about those cleaning fairies that Tracey wished for us... I think Santa skipped my chimney so kindly send yours over when they are done? I know Tracey asked for them but... I think I 'm on the way to her house;-)

  18. Eva thank you from the bottom of my heart for this amazing gift. Normally on a Saturday morning I am stuck in bed feeling sorry for my poor chemo soaked self but today I am lying here feeling so much happier than I ever would have thought possible. Thank you for a better Christmas than I ever would have thought possible and your painting is simply wonderful. I will always think of you when I drink Moroccan mint now xx
