One day this week, my friend Susan called me at work to say her sister Beth, another longtime tea-lover friend, had found something for me and that I could either A) keep it if I didn't already have one or B) give it away as a gift on the blog if it was a duplicate! Isn't that incredibly generous, and I love that she was thinking not only of me but also of you! (Alas, I did not have one of these, so no giveaway on this. But I'll do another giveaway soon and help "pay it forward," as the saying goes.)
I love that this piece comes with small holes for hanging, and I've been mulling over precisely where it should go. Under or over a tea-themed piece of art? Next to another piece of black ironwork that holds teacups and saucers? But then it would also look great hanging on my tea cabinet, the one where I pile teacups and accoutrements and tins of tea. So ... if someone had given you this lovely item as a gift, what would *you* do with it? Ideas welcome!
