Show & Tell: Tea Anyone?

I don't drink tea, I don't like it, never have, BUT I had to have this little 'tea kettle' when I saw it at Goodwill for a $1
(I use it to heat water for instant oatmeal)

AND I had to have this HUGE tea cup planter! I've had my eye on these, and for my Easter present to myself, I choose this one (and a bamboo lazy Susan), there were some really cute spring colored ones, but I think these colors will work during all seasons.



So, plop in a plant, and my table is all decked out!!!
(plant is a new fangled airplane plant with a super cool orangish center)


Ta-da! And lately, with hubby and I eating alone together at the table everynight
(part of our new dedication to each other),
it really is 'Tea For Two'

Have a great weekend!!!!

Cut teapot and tea cup planter. My husband and I always enjoy our meals together at the table. We also turn off the TV!!! I like to have fresh flowers when possible, too.

Love the kettle and the idea to change the cup into a flower pot is very creative, lol and looks nice.
I never drank tea in my whole life until I discovered Hibiscus tea 3 years ago ! Now I am into peach tea, lemon tea, vanilla tea etc etc ! Hot or cold in summer !

I love the little teapot. I think the plant really looks pretty in the teacup. don't you just love finding these little things we love in stores such as the Goodwill store?

I prefer cozy little dinners for two over tv trays in the living room. Lucky, hubby likes to dine at the table, too.
How can you NOT like tea??????? Girl, if Gov Perry finds out, he'll take away your Texas citizenship!

Grammy said...

I love the cuo. Did you insert a pot into it to make it a self watering cup?
The tea pot is way to cool too!

Julie said...

I love teapots, teacups and tea! I've only know one other person who doesn't like tea. I'm not a big fan of coffee. : )
Nice items!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog too.

Great tea themed items - especially from a non-tea drinker.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Zaroga said...

Just beautiful! I've been thinking of one of the cup planters, but can't think of a place to put in our home.

Brenda said...

I'm an iced tea girl. But have never like hot tea either for some reason.

I was looking at tea cup planters the other day in a magazine. Yours is a very pleasing design.
My show and tell is finally up:

I'd drink tea more if I had stuff like that! Usually I just dump a couple herbal tea bags in a water bottle, pour in the boiling water, shut it up, and drink it slowly as it cools down throughout the morning.

perennialgardener said...

Cute teacup planter. I love your teapot too, that was a good find. I love tea myself, but it works well for anything you need hot water for. :)

Lisa Ann said...

Love that tea cup planter! Girl we drink so much tea in our house. Sweet tea that is!

hip chick said...

It looks very nice. I like those giant tea cup planters also.

Love the tea kettle and the large cup and saucer. Your kitchen table looks wonderful. With my youngest graduating from high school in just a few days, it's frequently just my husband and I at the table also - VERY strange, still can't get used to that one!

Lisa Loo said...

Just lovely--like the tea for two! I LOVE that you have tea stuff and hate tea!

Wolf said...

what a great idea! i love it! i may have to steal it for myself! :)

Kanak Hagjer said...

Oooh I love your teacup planter! Cool! But I don't understand why some people can't stand tea...it's a life-saver for me:)

Msrobin said...

I bought one of those teacup planters are Wally-World, aren't they cute? I had one last summer, and left it out in winter to freeze and fall apart. So I was pleased to find them for sale again this year. Unlike you, I "am" a tea lover, so it's perfect for me.

I love your mug and saucer. Makes a gorgeous planter. I came over for blooming tuesday, only to find you didn't have one. But I still got to see one of your lovely plants.
