Rescue Me

In my last post, there were numerous comments praising my restraint on the tea goodies spotted at the stores. Welllllll, being Superwoman (it's not easy).

While I was window shopping at Winners, my kryptonite appeared in the form of this super cute mug by Rose of England (Made in the United Kingdom). I just had to rescue this lonely bone china mug from the clearance rack!

I celebrated Earth Hour with this teacup scented soy candle by Mor.

March Moments

Hello, spring?

Last week, Mother Nature delivered 20 cm of snow. Gotta love March snow days!

Teacup by Sutherland China
 St. Patrick's Day Tea #1: Irish Breakfast by David's Tea.

St. Patrick's Day Tea #2: Jasmine Crème Brulée green tea.
I used my David's Tea rewards to score a free cup of this sweet and creamy tea.

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #1
Spotted at Value Village: the biggest functional teapot that I ever saw!
It looked like it could serve 20-30 cups of tea and had a spigot at the bottom.

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #2
Spotted at Winners: an adorable "Hoppy Easter" mug on sale for only $4!

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #3
Spotted at Hallmark: a unique teacup bookend.

Have you seen any neat tea-related items recently?

Purple Reigns in My World

I have a weakness for purple teacups so I was thrilled to score this beauty at a church sale last summer.

The teacup was made by Royal Albert.

The pretty purple and yellow combination are perfect for Easter!

I blame Lorrie for my latest impulse purchase. Recently, she shared her cute polka dot wellies...

...the next thing I knew, these purple rainboots by Kamik arrived at my door!
These rubber boots (my first pair!) are recyclable, orthotic-friendly and made in Canada.

The rubber sole has great traction and the squeaking was minimal.

I don't usually order shoes online because I like to try them on first (my feet are VERY picky!). So I was relieved and happy to discover that the waterproof boots could accommodate my orthotics and were comfortable.

Let it rain.

Tea Temptations

During a recent visit to Michaels, I spotted a new  line of products called "Primrose Hill" which featured blue and white tea-themed items.

Left: A charming teapot garland.
Right: A tea for one set.

I came thisclose to bringing this tea towel home with me.
Fortunately, my willpower prevailed!

But I did purchase a couple of the aqua teacup cookier cutters for my Christmas tea tree...

Another temptation that I resisted: This $3 mint green tin mug from Dollarama (aka $1 Plus).
