Tea Time

One of my new year's resolutions is to enjoy tea rather than use it as a jump start to my day.  While I drink less of it now, I certainly enjoy it more and buy quality loose leaf rather than the stale bagged type.

Now, I'm not one to collect tea cups, fine china, porcelain figurines (actually, that last one is a lie; I have quite a few ceramic or porcelain "Pet's" around the house) but once in a while I stumble across something so pretty that I'm tempted to collect them like one them folks on Hoarders.

My favourite colour combinations are bold, jewel tones with gold accents, less roses and poses, more lace-like designs.

I've also seen some clever re-purposing of tea cups and tea canisters:
