For the Love of Tea



Today being St. Hearts & Flowers Day - I have decided to declare my love for my kitchen. 

In all it's relative smallness, it is the one of the places that I am, at times, my most creative. And of late, I have been paying it a lot more attention. Namely in the way of sprucing it up a tad and giving it a lick of paint and a bit of reorganisation. 

It is the first place we walk into when we come home from the grind, or the jumble sale. After we have said hello to the pushkas (or shooed them out of the way.. ahem) we reach for the kettle to make a nice cuppa.

I love tea. Really, I do. Be it builders, Earl Grey or herbal -  I love it. With this in mind I decided to have a butchers on Etsy (aka The Money Snatcher) to see what I could find to add to my general kitchen /  cup of splosh  lurve.

This is what I found.....
