I Just Can't Help Myself!

The catalogs keep coming in and I keep looking!
I found these fun tea things in the Acorn Catalog.
It is fun to let the fingers do the walking and then send the catalog on to recycling! 

Tea Mosaic

The  red pot with the polka dots (I love polka dots) is a tea tower.
Dismantled, the tower becomes an 8 oz. teapot, creamer, sugar bowl, and 4 oz mug with saucer.
Stacked, it's 10" tall.

The lavender tea set is white ceramic hand-painted with delicate sprays of lavender.
Edges and rims are scalloped.
It is a 10 piece set that includes teapot, two cups with saucers, cream and sugar, and tray with handles.

I thought the cups with the dogs were fun and it's always good to Keep Calm and Carry On!

Tea Mosaic


A book, a comfortable chair, a free hour or two, and your own pot of tea.
The ceramic pot is embellished with books, titles, and the names of famous authors.
It is 6 inches high and holds 18oz of tea.
I think this one may have to go on my wish list!

Finally, to continue to celebrate January and Hot Tea Month,

There are many wonderful tea parties in the blogging world.
Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday are just three of them.

Wishing you well and a delicious cup of tea.

Oh Snap, what cute cute treasures. I especially love the lavendar tea set; so very precious! and those mugs with the dogs, wouldn't those be great? and last, who can resist the mug? great advice...
I love little trinkets but don't indulge much...are you a tea drinker? I love tea and have a couple of cups a day now that it is cold outside...nothing like a warm cup of tea to warm the toes and the heart...
Have a blessed evening!

Tea, tea, glorious tea! I loved the polka dots most until I saw the "Keep Calm and Carry On" mug but the tea pot really takes the cake, or the pot!

Sarah said...

Oh oh oh I looooove I love tea pots..cups..etc! Now I am going to have to go look at the catalog!!! LOL!!

When I was deeply poor..I used to go through wonderful catalogs and choose one thing on each page. At that time I could not dream of buying anything..but it helped me dream and move forward.

Hugs to you hon, Sarah

I love all the items - but my favorite is the Books and authors teapot. The perfect pot to take into my library when I go to read whatever I am currently reading.

I love the lavender tea set. I have a passion for lavender. I grow it, sew with it and anything I can find to do with lavender I'm there. What a darling post. And, thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner.
