Teahouse Treehouse

Drawing Challenge: tree house This week our host is the fabulous Rachel who chose this wonderful theme. My offering is a paper cutting using Japanese hand made paper and origami paper, and Chinese joss paper in a silvered gold leaf. These are cut and mounted on to used tea bag paper. My glue stick is a gooey mess due to years of laying unused. So I could only tack it in places:
I'm planning a tea party later and you are welcome to come join in the fun. We'll be serving tea and perfectly aged fruitcake and freshly made sugared plums. Then we're going to tell each other's fortunes and tell ghost stories. We might have to talk a bit louder than usual though because 'Wolfsong' is communing with nature again.
Thanks for dropping by and we'll see you at the tea party I hope. See you soon! *smiles* Norma

    i've not seen an eastern {tea}house up in a tree before, so this makes me chuckle. the very idea... the tea bag paper makes it all good too. i always love your choice of this material.
