I've finally managed to clean up the dinner table enough for a photo session...  Tongue It was a great package and I couldn't be more happy with it. Just a warning: there's a lot of pictures.

The whole lot:

The candle is sandalwood scented and there's a small notebook with a flower on it. It's almost too pretty to write in.

Oh... But something is missing. That's because I've already started using the cute stitch markers!

I love miniature things and these are just so cute. Much better than the neon rubber bands I was using...

Badges, a pin and a beaded infuser. Everything is resting on a chai scented teapot mat. It smells really good and I can't stop touching it. Soft...




Close up on the infuser, isn't it great? I used it for the first time after taking the pictures.


I knitted a scarf from left over yarn this summer, but the yarn ran out so it ended up a bit short. I wasn't sure what to do with it, but now I can use it Smiley


Here's the tea dyed yarn. It looks really nice when it's knitted.


The colours are a bit off, but take a look at this. It's a painted tea jar inspired by tea glasses. Inside is a herb blend that should taste nice and is good for rheumatism. I tried a cup yesterday. There was also a bunch of tea samples inside, but it took some time before I found them...


Did I mention I got A LOT of tea:

There's some white tea I'm eager to try and I'm currently drinking some orange and cinnamon rooibos. All those samples are going to keep me busy for weeks! I think I'll bring some of the tea bags with me to work.

Look at the star book! It's so beautiful and it's filled with recipes I'm itching to try.



My teapot got a cosy! =)

Allting gr med vilja, vld.... och vaselin. Smiley

It translates to something like: Everything is possible with willpower, violence and vaseline.

Love the "vaselline" tea cozy & that tea towel is awesome! I love the little bird!
I received on Saturday- unfortunately my computer died on sat too, so it's being fixed & I'm having a hard time getting access to the internet. Thanks so much Knit_dork24 & hopefully one of us will be able to get pics posted soon.

I received my package from omg_word today...  She sent me some handmade Tea Party Invitations with link on how to use them.  She sent me several kinds of tea for my tasting pleasure.  There were also some chocolate covered spoons. (good call, I LOVE chocolate!)  And finally there were two tea cannisters made into candles which I believe will come in very handy tonight during our expected rough weather.  Thank you so much for your craftiness Erin!

The tea tin candles...



Over-all shot minus the candles...

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
