So, I'm sat here drinking my fifth cup of tea of the day, scrolling through the last Tea Time Swap gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145496.0) with huge amounts of jealousy and I was wondering whether any one would be up for another round?

We could send anything tea, tea time or tea party related... some ideas I had/stole were:

- Tea (obviously)
- Tea accessories (infusers etc.)
- Unfortunately one broke in transit.
- Plates, tea cups, tea pots (new, crafted up or even just fantastic odd/vintage items found at charity shops etc)
- Tea Pot Cosies
- Doilies, napkins, tea towels, table clothes
- Pinnies or aprons,
- Tea party recipes,
- Tea themed items (I think I remember tea pot shaped bracelets and stitch markers from the last swap for instance)
- Tea quotes
- Things that could be used at a tea party (place names, tea cup charms etc (I'm not sure these exist... yet, but you know what I mean, like wine glass charms... but for tea cups))
- Tea Dresses, or other tea theme clothing, (tea shoes are an idea I may have to pursue whether this takes off or not!)
- Maybe even tea themed books/poetry/films etc... Obviously there is Alice in Wonderland, but I'm sure there must be more!
- Tea chests or decorated air tight jars or containers for storing tea.
- Tea spoons (either as they are or converted into pendants, bracelets, windchimes etc.)
- Tea bath treats
- Tea dyed fabric or yarn
Plus there must be so many more ideas floating around, tea plays such an important role in so many cultures they must be loads we can do! I've got so excited just typing that list, its quite tragic!

Unfortunately I can't organise a swap yet, as I've not completed enough, but I would be happy to aid some one who did want to organise it!

There has to be a lover of tea prepared to help this get going somewhere, Please... I will even throw a tea party in your honour.

I'd participate! My lovely tea pot needs a cozy, and I'm always up for trying new flavors.

This sounds like a great idea!

There are so many tea based crafty ideas around, I really hope this does take off!

Kenners that is a great idea! I'd be up for a tea swap, and would probably be able to organise if we all agree a time for signups. Cheesy

Heh heh, I can't claim it was totally my idea... it is somewhat pilfered from past swaps... but I'm convinced it would be amazing!

I'ld be happy to help out with organising if it did go ahead, although there doens't seem to be much interest just yet!

Talking of tea, its nearly tea and cake time!  Grin

I'd probably go for this, but I can't get a teapot, my husband has said I have too many... although I suppose if I swap one of mine...  lol
