My teatime projects don't normally center around the bathroom, thank goodness, but today is a rare exception to that rule. I had decided that since my husband and I are both writers, it might be fun to redecorate the downstairs bathroom with a "writing" theme. To my surprise, some tea things ended up in there as well!
My bottle of ink (I wrote about it here) wins a spot on the shelf and happens to be tea-colored ink.
If you were reading a year ago, you may remember that this is not in fact a teapot but something of great use to writers. (A friend of mine says it would be great for espionage. She may be right!)
I'm still looking for a cheap old display shelf to decoupage with script style papers, but for now I've got a tissue box sitting on a vintage tea chest. I have long loved things with type and/or handwriting on them, and I'm enjoying gathering them for this room.
It took me a while to locate the right mirror, and naturally I found it at T.J. Maxx.
And the bright logo and type on this travel candle appealed to me when I saw it at an antique mall a while back, but I just don't pay $20 for candles. Happily, I found the same candle at Barnes and Noble last week for $9.95!
The Tea Leaves and Bergamot scent is perfect for a guest bathroom, and I'm happy to have found yet another "touch of tea" for a most unexpected part of the house!
