My family and friends totally spoiled me last Christmas with tea-related gifts! I'm blessed that my loved ones
enable my addiction support my love of all things tea.
This "Celebration" Teapot by Bowring is a daily reminder to:
Celebrate Life...Dream Big...Laugh Often...Live Well...
Glass ornaments for my tea-themed tree.
Tea-infused bath and body products.
These soft lips are single-handedly keeping the Toronto-based Bare English & Co. in business!
I suspect my friends gifted me this super cute teacup apron and copper teapot cookie cutter to motivate this reluctant chef in the kitchen (Well played, guys!).
When I sent my friend a photo showing off my new tree topper, her response was:
Love it! But...you do know...cookie cutter is meant for making cookie, right? Hint, hint...
How cute are these miniatures?
An assortment of new teas for me to try out throughout 2016...
...with the IQ Kettle with variable temperature control to optimize the tea flavour.
Fun new mugs and cups for some happy sippin'.
The pretty pattern of this vintage bone china teacup is called Silver Lace by Queen Anne.
The silver filigree design is perfect for winter decor!
A vintage lustreware teapot and sugar set made in Japan.
After seeing all the tea stuff that I've shared today (and over the past year), you'll be surprised to learn that I'm actually a bit of a minimalist! Teas and pretty china are my kryptonite, but I'm running out of storage space in my humble abode...
Thanks to my generous and thoughful family and friends, I now have more than enough teas, teapots, and teacups in my collection. So this teaholic is on a diet! I haven't purchased any new teas since October 1st (YAY!), and I won't buy any tea pretties for a while...let's see how long my resolve will last!
Now it's time to announce the winner of my 1-year blogiversary giveaway!
And the Winner is...(drum roll):
Congratulations, Annamarie!!! Please send me your mailing address and I will ship the tea towel, mug and tea samples to you.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway!
I'm joining the following parties this week:
