Share ideas and pictures that incorporate tea and/or tea themes into home decor. Displays, art, prints, fabrics, and collection all count in this category. Do you use teapots and teacups as a part of your home decor? If so, describe how.
If you're arriving from La Tea Dah's Decor-a-tea, welcome! If you're one of the faithful, thank you for being here! If you just fell through a portal and have no idea how you arrived, April Fool's!
This little tour is going to begin with the sublime and head right down the tubes to the ridiculous with a photo of my medicine cabinet. You'll want to hang in there for that!
My favorite decoration of late with teacups has already been featured earlier (several times :P), but never one to shun the chance to post yet another picture, here it is after Easter. I'm really missing the blooms on the cactus!
All I did was to play off of another blogger's idea by using an empty antique picture frame and tying teacups from the top edge with ribbons.
Before I was displaying the little nest in the apothecary jar, as you see in my header, I often displayed it this way:
Just find your favorite teacup and turn it on its side resting the nest inside. This works very well for taller shelves. If displaying on a tabletop, the teacup could be rightside up for a visual surprise.
Last week, so many of you mentioned Sandy Lynam Clough an artist who collects teacups and teapots herself to create wonderful vignettes to paint. I love her work! Her calendars for 2005 and 2006 are among my favorite things...see, I've even saved the covers.
The calendars themselves are used for crafts and cover-ups. This is a closet door where I hang my necklaces.
And, as promised, the medicine chest where I use tea mugs to store my toothbrush and razors, etc. Whatever fits in!
Thank you for visiting today, feel free to wander about in my blog, I'm sure you'll discover more Decor-a-tea. Don't forget to continue the tour at La Tea Dah's!
