Yesterday was my sweet niece Cari's 12th birthday, so on Saturday my mom and I went shopping with her so she could pick out some of her own gifts. We were in a Ross store together when I asked if Cari would mind if I looked for tea things, and she was happy to oblige. Not only that, she was first to spot this great garden-design teacup planter, which I just loved! It's about 7-1/2 inches in diameter, 4-1/2 inches tall, and will make a great container for starting seeds or holding a small plant. I haven't decided yet how it will be used, but it's definitely a must-have for the tea garden.
A month or two ago I saw this cute brown metal napkin holder at Ross, and of course I picked it up to check it out. I hardly ever use paper napkins in the kitchen, however, and decided I didn't really need it. Back it went on the shelf.
Then, a few weeks later, I began looking for a new organizer to hold the household bills, so this time when I saw the napkin holder I was seeing it with different eyes!
And finally, thanks to my friend ParTea Lady I knew to look for these teapot and teacup design PJ's that were on clearance. Yes! I scored the last pair, and in just my size. This, my friends, is what I plan to wear to the Royal Wedding Tea at my house on April 29.
Speaking of Royal Wedding Tea, the event, did you know Harney is now offering Royal Wedding Tea, the blend? I've already ordered a tin myself, and I wanted to make sure you knew about it too! (And if you do order, I wanted to mention that I found a 10% off coupon code at retailmenot.com. I NEVER order anything online without first seeing if there is a coupon available at Retail Me Not and have gotten lots of great discounts and/or free shipping this way!)
