Will and Kate Forever

Ok, I will admit to not following all the knitty gritty details of the upcoming nuptials of the Royal Couple but how often do you really get to have a royal wedding?  If I had the day off I would totally be glued to my tv to watch the whole procession and revel in my inner 7 year old’s wish to be a princess (yeah I was that girl.) Here are a few towels for all of us “grown up” princesses.

I think this towel says it all- From Taylors Type

If you go for something more subtle and reserved this crown print is jolly good- from enormouschampion

Strap on your gloves and make sure you have your mouth guard ready for the throw down!- From the Screen Prince- Luke James

Just in case it wasn’t clear why she is marrying him- From Who Did This

Time to break out the celebratory packet of Digestives and toast the happy couple with a Cuppa!

Will and Kate, truly, all the best.

In the Pantry- Handmade Tea Chests

I am always looking for the best way to store all my tea. Tins, jars, boxes, bags. I get tired of all the cardboard boxes of the bagged teas I like. I am not OCD or even all that tidy but I like to think I could be. So here is a round up of a few of my favorite tea storage options.

This is my new tea chest (Thank You honey!) from Leo’s Woodworks. It is made from Cheery and the story that came with the box said the wood is from a tree that came down in a storm. The box is beautiful, very sturdy and came pre-loaded with tea! Only problem is I have to drink it all before I can put my tea in it (tough life I know). There are a few styles and sizes and they are all beautiful. Teal albatross not included.

If you like to have your tea in easy reach and want to enjoy the graphic quality of your tea boxes this tea shelf would be great. Made from old wine boxes, this shelf is a clever re-use. From Remnant District Designs.

If you drink a lot of loose tea that you order in bulk these tea tins from Specialty Bottle are great. We used the smallest size to make our wedding favors and filled them with a Peach Black Tea. How much fun would it be to design your own labels?!

Now that I am all organized (in my mind anyway) it is time for another cuppa!
