I can't believe that it has already been a year since I participated in my first Vampire Day Soiree but when I visited Holly's Horrorland
yesterday, I spotted Holly's invitation to participate once again. All I'd have to do is sign up on her blog site, place the accompanying badge on my page and post about something vampire related. It's all easy enough to do and something vampire related just happened this week; so that part will be a cinch.
A couple of weeks ago I ordered a Bela Lugosi mug from the Insomniac's Attic and it came in on Monday, just two days ago. Since I have a large, covered coffee mug that I've been both using at home and carrying to coffee shops for years, my new container will be strictly for tea drinking and hopefully, will serve me well for many a cold winter afternoon to come.
I've also come to the realization that during the warmer months of the year, I hardly ever drink tea--at least not at home. For me, a hot Earl Grey, green or English tea is something that I crave during the cool, dark and dreary days of late autumn and winter. This being the case I've decided that Bela will serve quite well as a part of my decor during the long, hot summer. Anyway, let's take a closer look at Bela--or should I say, Count Dracula?
Here's the Count in all his glory. Notice the blood dripping from the left side of his mouth. I sure hope none of it gets into my tea.
And here he is enjoying himself with friends. I think he'll fit in just fine.
I really appreciate Ms. Holly's creating of this alternative Valentine's Day tradition, and I enjoy participating in it. It's like she says, this is a day dedicated to people who believe in "love at first bite."
