The Tea Lovers Eco Cup

It was supposed to be just a simple in-and-out trip to Books A Million in Peachtree City to pick up a copy of one of the few magazines I can't find in Newnan. I would dash in through the café, cut to the back where the magazines are, check out and be on my merry way. But no. The café just HAD to have a display of these Tea Lovers Eco Cups in cute patterns with teapot-shaped doodads on them. I mean, really. I've resisted buying one of these ceramic mugs mimicking the look of a to-go cup every time I've seen them so far, even when I spotted pink ones at T.J. Maxx.

But with roses? What rose-crazy tea lover could resist that, I ask you?

And the teapot-shaped doodad? So that bit of $8.99 cuteness was going home with me, no two ways about it. I got home and was getting ready to photograph my new cup when I realized the string of the tag was tangled behind the teapot. That's when it dawned on me the "doodad" is designed to wrap your teabag string around! It was a "duh" moment if ever there was one! If you have a BAM nearby, these come in lots of great patterns, including stripes, funky flowers and even one with a floral pattern reminiscent of Blue Willow. But I'm quite happy with the roses and green teapot design. What a fun find!

  3. What a great cup Angela! I've never heard of BAM, I don't think we have them here in California, but I'll keep my eyes peeled at Borders and Barnes & Noble. I love the roses!
