New teas, new toys, new places to explore!!!!
Having my favorite Inkivaari Tee- ginger tea from Finland, in one of my favorite mugs- handmade by Richard Busch of Glenfiddich Farm Pottery in Leesburg, Va. I have several of his pieces, and love his work!!!
Atop the mug, is one of my new "tea toys"!!! It's a solid cherry tea strainer/infuser, hand made in America (!) by Moon Spoon.
The other little tea toy I have is a teabag tweezer, made by Stan and Sue Jennings of Alleghany Treenware.
I found these at a wonder-full shop in Elkton, Va called SoLace Studios.
SoLace is owned by Barb Polin, and it is her working studio as well as her shop. Barb is a fiber artist, who creates beautiful hand marbled silk and leather clothing and accessories. This eye candy store carries all sorts of tantalizing, must -have creations by many talented artisans.
|I must have one of these mirrors - very soon!!|
|The old tin ceiling is to die for....!!!|
|a serene shopping/browsing experience|
|Some of Barb's fabulous silks......|
So, if you are in Elkton, look up Barb's shop- she is also on FB!
Now, back to my tea - I started inside, using my "new" upcycled indoor coaster!
Now, I am heading out to the garden, and here is my perfect sweetheart of an outdoor coaster!
Here's who joined me for tea - her first appearance of the season, looking like she might have had a nest of babies somewhere earlier..
Who's joining you for tea today??
