Tea should be taken in solitude.....
I love the quote by C.S.Lewis that tea should be taken in solitude...it really speaks to the idea that we need time to ourselves, to relax, repair and remember who we are. This quote is also fitting for this post because I had hoped to attend Vanessa's Mad Tea Party on A Fanciful Twist but life had other plans and I was unable to put together the blog post I had hoped for this weekend. But I did want to share with you two etsy shops where I found wonderful items and a few pics of my favorite tea items!
First, a fairy coat made by Cat, owner of the Etsy shop, FairyTea. Here is a pic of the lovely Cat modeling the coat I bought from her for the tea party. Please visit her shop on Etsy!
Next is a picture of a lovely floral headpiece that I purchased from Bloom Design Studio on Etsy. These headpieces are so beautiful and very wearable. I purchased a headband very similar to the one the model is wearing and I just love it. Please be sure to visit Bloom Design Studio when you get the chance!
A cupcake that is too pretty to eat....almost!!
A vintage demitasse cup that belonged to my husband's great grandmother....so beautiful!
A vintage ad for fairy cakes for your enjoyment, please feel free to download it and use in your art!
