Tea Time

I’ve become a tea dreaking fanatic.  Here are a few items I’ve found on Etsy that I would love to have (and may just buy for myself).  But, in the meantime, I’ll share them with you until I save up a bit of spending money.

First, you need a mug to drink from. I really like this Purple Mug from Pickled Aliens.


Here is a cool little thing from Scatter Box that I can carry my tea baggies to work in. It is a Tea Pouch that holds up to 3 tea bags.


What’s next? Ah, yes! A tea pot of course! This beauty is made by a local (to me) potter – La Pella Pottery.


I drink my tea with just a bit of sugar. This adorable sugar bowl is from Barbara Dunshee.


Cookies are good anytime, but at tea time they are even better. I would love to try these Honey Lavender Shortbread Cookies from Whimsy and Spice.


Hmmm… what else could I need for a perfect tea time? TEA! Jasmine tea from tea balls is currently my favorite tea in the world.  I had it while I was at a friends home for a Christmas party. It is so cool and taste great too. This is what Etsy has to offer, it is Jasmine Tea Balls from The Cadeaux that bloom when you steep them.



Finished, just in time for Christmas.

I’ve finally finished the commission job and will be dropping the items off with their owner tomorrow. Here are photos of what I did Sunday.

18/365 Vest Day

Vest #2

I assembled the 2 vests, which I had not done before. It was quite a learning experience but I’m very happy with how they turned out.

I also made a couple of Christmas pressies today. A hat for my dad and fingerless mitts for my step-dad. I have enough yarn left over to make my father-in-law a hat too.

Sorry about the cruddy photo:
Christmas Gifts

Tonight, I began putting up our Christmas tree. We’re going super basic this year because the animals like to destroy it. I’ve come home to my kitties laying in between the branches and they like to knock all the ornaments off so the dog can chew them. I just don’t want to deal with that this year. So here’s the start of my basic 3 foot tree with white lights (that we probably won’t plug in) and a paper chain (that needs a little bit more chain).
