drawing challenge / tea/coffee time

Amazing Ariane invited us all to her table for tea.  She has a long list of participants in this week's challenge.  It's exciting to see so many artists, hopefully this week will start a trend for the new year.

Being a coffee drinker, I invite you to my morning ritual.

Splendid! Great video lovie. I'm tickled that you were using the Z mug. The edits made it feel like a Dharma Initiative training film. Daisy wrapped things up nicely. Bravo!

Ariane Reichardt said...

Oh, Rachel,
I love it!
I feel the awaiting eagerly, haha, I know this feeling in the morning... this lilt... oh, I'm tapping my toes and sway to the lovely music.
Your thumb up, really dear action.
That looking around, inside your kitchen, through the window.
And: you are a Mif! 'Milk in first'... another surprise... you have a cat?

And: This token of love... ZZZZZZ

Wonderful! Lovely!
Thank you!
Love, Ariane.

He he he he! I loved this! I must say I have never seen coffee made that way before. It certainly looks like a wonderful ritual to have every morning. Oh, and the view from your window! Beeeaaautiful! :)

(By the way, it's me, life-by-Ansku... I started a new blog to follow my new year's wishes, and I changed from my nickname to my real first name.) ;)

demie said...

that was the most original approach to the theme! great to watch your morning ritual... and that boat looked very familiar ; )

i like coffee in the morning too. with milk.
although my ritual is a bit faster since i use powder coffee ...

loved the music also!

Peggy Ray said...

Great production values! Did you have a good crew? I see Daisy helped tremendously. I also enjoyed the Z mug, Hairbender coffee and the views of the day, the neighborhood, sailing ship and dish towel... and best of all the very francais musique! Voila, magnifique!

Ariane Reichardt said...

Daisy and Edith,
dear Rachel,
is Daisy your cat and the music is from Edith Piaf?

My family enjoyed your video too.

x Ariane.

This is so, so lovely, Rachel. And the song is stuck in my mind, I'm afraid I will always think of you when I hear it. That's not a bad thing!
