Tips and Tea on Tuesdays

On Tips and Tea on Tuesdays, I will cover a topic and hopefully provide you with some tips that will be helpful! And just as an afterthought, tea may occasionally be a cup of Joe!

Tea today is Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger! Flavorful with a bit of a zap! A bit like the color explosion in the photo. I love to shop thrift stores, and find wonderful bits of colorful pottery like the examples above. I have a collection of wooden boxes that I painted, and stacked into a shelving unit. I use these to store my collection of “kitchen” finds, and hand-me-down utensils.

Tip: Thrift Store Shopping

  • When you first start out, look for colors that you like, or colors that match some of the pieces that you already have on display.
  • Make sure that the pieces you are going to buy are in good condition, and don’t have any noticeable chips or big cracks!
  • When you get your treasures home, give them a good cleaning, preferably in the dishwasher.
  • When you are shopping, set yourself a price limit, that way you will still have money left over for a cup of tea or coffee!

Happy tea drinking and stitching to you! ~Christen
