Art-tea: Rebecca Jones

I was browsing Pinterest looking for tea and knitting and I came across the tea art of Rebecca Jones. What’s not to love?

Craftea: Edible Teacup Cookies

I found this stunning recipe from SheKnows on Pinterest. The only real question is if I would have the patience to complete these treats?

Arttea: Illustrations and Lilla Rogers.

Lilla Rogers is an illustrator and head of an agency that represents other illustrators and artists. Each year she hosts a Global Talent Search which is a contest, the winner of which receives representation by the agency.

A few weeks ago Ana turned me on to some of the tea themed entries in the competition over the years.

Knittea: Ulmus and a Cup of Tea

Several weeks ago Hedgehog Fibres posted a photo on Instagram of her lovely new colorway, Teacup.

I was instantly smitten and had to have it.  What could be more perfect for me than Teacup yarn? In fact, I ordered twice, on two different bases.

Then I started looking for the perfect shawl, that would showcase the lovely yarn. I settled on Ulmus by Kirsten Kapur and paired my lovely Teacup with a skein of yarn by Colorpurl, an MCN in Dark Cochineal Cherry.

And then I knit a lot. And some more. And then a bit more. And this past weekend I was finally done.

I still love that Teacup.

Craftea: Displaying your Collection

If you’re like me, you have quite the collection of teapots, teacups and mugs.  I hate hiding these beauties in cupboards and am always looking for a way to display them.  This post from Tidbits & Twine suggests adding a colored backdrop to best display a collection of varied items.
