a cup of tea to go . . .


 I drink a lot of tea.

Seriously, a LOT of tea.  I won't bore you with details.  Let's just say that pretty little teacup in the background photo is WAY too small . . .

Anyway, here is a simple tea caddy for my bag, using the cutest Leaky Shed Studio teapot, all crackled up with DecoArt Media paints, Crackle Glaze, and Antiquing Creme.
Yes, I'm a little addicted to the crackle finish--but c'mon, it's perfect for a teapot, right?

Nice deep pockets inside to hold my portable stash . . . and lots of bright spring colors for a quick non-caffeinated pick-me-up! 

Plus, inked up this new butterfly from Lost Coast Designs--love it!

It's shaping up to be a lovely spring here, everything is blooming like crazy--have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!  :)

Trisha I belong to a closed FB group, Coffee Loving Papercrafters. But it includes tea and hot chocolate lovers! We're gearing up for another blog hop in June--lots of sponsor prizes and everyone posts their makes on their blogs so we can visit eachother. I love this teapot and your make! That crackle is amazing.
