The crafty YouTubers have influenced me to DIY my own tea-themed ornaments this year.
This year, I found Mod Podge at Dollarama and decided to give it another shot.
These Christmas baubbles turned out MUCH better!
My curiosity got the better of me: I tried Justin Bieber's timbits with a cup of DavidsTea's Merry Mistletoe white tea. The Sour Cream Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Fudge "timbiebs" were just okay.

I'm an early Christmas decorator so my halls are all decked out by the end of November.
My ornaments are a delightful mix of whimsy and elegance!
Some ornaments were thrifty finds.
It's fun hunting for tea-themed ornaments!

It's red season!
Last Friday, I had a T party to celebrate the release of Taylor Swift's re-recording of her fourth album, Red (Taylor's Version)!
In my DYI "Begin Again" teacup: Dessert by Deb's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie herbal tea.
"Begin Again" is one of my favourite songs on Red (TV). Can you see my red fringe scarf?
When I saw the $45 "Begin Again" teacup on the Taylor Swift store (which sold out quickly), I decided to try to DYI my own teacup. I found this cute white tea for one set at the thrift store for only $5.99.
I used a red Sharpie pen to write "Begin Again" on the mug. The red colour faded during the baking process, so I repeated this process several times until the red ink finally stayed.
I watched it begin again.

Me: I'm going to stop buying teapots.
Narrator: She's not going to stop buying teapots.
My eagle eyes spotted this beauty sitting on the top shelf at a thrift store...
...and was shocked by the price tag: $5.99 CAD
Reason for the low price: the lid had a hairline fracture
But this didn't bother me since it didn't affect the function of the teapot.
I was delighted to give Royal Albert's "Lady Angela" a good home!

I enjoy chais throughout the year, but they always taste better during the cozy autumn days!
