Pillow Talk Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of Moda's Pillow Talk Blog hop.

Today's featured designer is Joanna Figueroa from Fig Tree & Co. I am pretty sure her pillow will involve buttercream. No not frosting but Joanna's signature color Buttercream. Oh what a yummy color. Hop on over to her blog for a dose of Buttercream.

Joanna and I both like tea, hot tea, ice tea. At market if one of us is making a tea run, we just automatically pick up two teas, one for each of use.
Joanna recently blogged about a great tea she found. Bigelow Vanilla Caramel.
After reading her blog I went right out and bought myself some of that tea.
I especially like to drink it while eating caramel corn. Mmmm... eat some caramel...drink some some caramel…
Since I am quite sure that both Joanna and I will have tea of some sort today I thought I would paint a coffeepot (just kidding) a teapot.
I have titled the painting...

Me time.
I love me time.
A cup of hot caramel tea, a bag of caramel corn, just me on the couch.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see the painting of the day and link up with the talented Lynne from Kansas Troubles.

Make sure you find time for "me" time today.
From my heart,


  1. Love the little painted pictures each day...they make me smile!

  2. Your designs and your fabrics have always caught my eye and I've often thought what a lovely woman you must be...creative, funny, generous and kind. With these extra daily paintings, I see that my perception was spot on. Thank you for inspiring and giving so much to all of us!

  3. Sundays have always been "me time" days for me, the one day of the week that I would do things for me and not the hubby or kids. Having been a working mom of three, these were always special days that I looked forward to.

  4. The tea sounds wonderful and is perfect to go with your little painting! Or is it the other way around? Either way - yummy!

  5. Sandy....are the patterns for these darling pillows going to be available. Thanks so much...This is fun!

  6. oooo I too am a lover of tea, hot or cold! I will have to be on the look out for that yummy tea!

  7. Bigelow is my favorite tea company--I haven't been able to find Vanilla Caramel for a long time though, so I stick to my favorite Earl Grey. Your teapot is adorable!

    One question: Where is the coach you are sitting on, LOL?

  8. Oh yes, I think I'll go make a cup of tea too! Another darling painting!


  9. Cute little pudgy tea pot. :)

  10. Sandy, I love your little paintings every day!!!! Very cute!!!!

  11. Your Tea Time Me Time painting is adorable and I am glad you proved that school counselor to be are still an A Artist - in the REAL WORLD! :)

  12. I am also a tea lover. Every time I go to the dentist I get a lecture about how I should cut down on my tea consumption because it stains your teeth. I try, but my children claim I am addicted. I only use decaff tea so it's not the caffeine I crave. It is the soothing warmth and icy calm that only tea can give. No matter where I am, a cup/glass of tea can give me a moment of respite and calm or perk me up to finish what I have to do.

    I love your tiny tea pot painting. I would love fabric with that image.

  13. Your paintings are adorable. I love the one with the tea pot. I'm a tea lover too so I'll definitely try the vanilla caramel. Thanks for sharing your paintings!

  14. Your paintings are adorable! I'm a tea lover too and will definitely have to try the vanilla caramel. Sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing more of your pictures.

  15. A cup of tea. Mmmm so relaxing. I am enjoying these paintings.
