Mother's Day Tea Box

Right before my birthday I went to a real tea party. The fancy kind with china, scones and a whole bunch of flavored tea.
Since then I have really been into tea, tea pots and everything else to do with tea. It must be a sign of old age!
I used re-inker to color a white flower yellow.

Supplies from CTMH-Buttercup CS, Twilight CS, Sorbet ribbon, Twilight brad, white daisy crochet flowers, Twilight ink, Buttercup re inker, May word puzzle stamp set
Other-scallop punch

Okay, you had me at Vanilla Caramel. Mmmmmm!

Darling tea box! I love the idea of dying the flowers. Why didn't I think of that?

Love your blog. I've given you an award on my blog. Check it out!

Does that also explain the wanting to learn to crotchet?????? These are very cute and always remember I am way older than you are.

I'm a tea lover, too, currently hooked on Bigelow's Vanilla Chai. Your box is adorable. LOVE the color combination. I, too, would not have thought to dye the flowers. Thanks for the inspiration!

Though tea isn't my cup of preference I adored this project! You inspire me with your creativity every time I visit your blog.

BTW - Thank you for your comment on my Jr. size journal. Couldn't have done it without you ... I'm addicted and make these all the time!

Now - to get some blog followers!!

I'm not too much of a tea drinker (unless it's iced tea) but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate how adorable this is! I've actually thought about taking my girls to a high tea someday.

I especially like those flowers! (hee, hee)

Great work! Thanks so much for sharing!!

It's not a sign of old age; it's a sign of good taste! I LOVE tea, and your tea box is great.
