chilly


november isn't even here yet and already the temperature is in the tank. last night it was in the thirties and tonight it is taking a dirty dip to the low twenties. on nights like these i'm not too fond of kansas. i'd rather move back to arizona, where i can climb mountains in december and swim in january and eat a burrito outdoors on mill avenue.

i don't think we're going anywhere soon, so while i'm waiting, i'll keep warm with a cup of green tea and my funky red coat. and i'd like to confess here that i have crashed the stash of halloween candy. at this rate there may be nothing left for the children by friday night!

Beautifully illustrated as always Aimee! The tea sounds very good right about now but I'm still trying to come down from all the coffee I drank this morning. It's in the upper thirties here in VA at night, making it all the more difficult getting out of bed and to work early - ugh.

Pomegranate tea would be my first choice. I love pomegranate and only you can make words look physically beautiful.

there's nothing like a nice cup a tea to warm the cockles of your heart. arizona sounds good now, but what about in the summer ;)? love your drawing.

Krissy said...

Esti said...

Don't you just love the names of teas? Aaah, what I wouldn't do for a nice warm cup of tea by a warm fire on a chilly day. I used to love the NY winters. Bundling up in snow gear used to feel like an adventure. There isn't much of a winter here in Tokyo. Snow falls only a few times a year and disappears within a day.

Right now, though, the housework has been neglected, dirty dishes are in the sink and giant dust balls are threatening to come to life. I would so love to relax with a nice cup of pomegranate tea, but will be just as happy gazing at your art for the moment.

what beautiful typography! it's my first time visiting here and i'm quite delighted by all your illustrations and hand-lettering and typographical loveliness. (nice to meet you here.)

Gracia said...

Pomegranate green tea - yes, can you pour me a cup, too.

aimee said...

it's another chilly one this morning, but today i think coffee is on the menu. hey, esti, maybe that red coat will make an appearance here one of these days.... bella, i'd gladly trade snow (yuk) for a winter in tokyo!... and welcome ces and katrina :)...thank you ALL for your warm comments - they really make my day!

Well goodness, it was difficult for me to decide which post I wanted to leave a comment on, they're all SO well done!!! But as I'm a tea lover, I found this one especially appealing. You do such lovely, lovely work bravo!

I love the way the scent of the tea (and the text) goes back into the kettle...

It's good to have my name - I always come high up on alphabetical bloglists! Thanks, Aimee
