Savannah Tea Things

One of the pleasures of vacationing to me is looking for tea things to bring home.  It is fun to be reminded of your trip, as you are enjoying your purchases later.

It was disappointing that all the cups and saucers that I found in Savannah antique shops were too pricey, but I did manage to find a lovely Portmeirion Studio tea mug for only .55 at the Goodwill on Broughton St.  Since I already have one of these mugs in another floral motif, I'm on my way to another collection.

Of course, I always buy new teas (or old favorites like Barry’s) to try.

P7221795 As I mentioned in an earlier post, the First Flush Darjeeling Gopaldhara Estate tea is one of the best teas I’ve tried in a while.  This estate was planted by the British over 100 years ago.

 As many of you know, I enjoy robust black tea in the morning and Barry's Irish tea is a good one.P7221789

This pretty little tea spoon has a sundial on the handle.

 I always pick up lots of postcards and tea themed greeting cards.

This time I added something to one of my smaller collections with a bunny tea bag holder.  I like the blanket stitched motif around the edges.

Do you also have lots of ticket stubs, restaurant menus, maps, postcards, stamps, etc. from your travels that you hold on to?  I’m always telling myself that one day I’ll use them in my scrapbooks, but meanwhile they sure are piling up.  Do you have any neat storage solutions for travel memorabilia?

There is even an embroidered teapot on your blog! Very pretty!
Now, you should have seen me in this second hand shop today - I really wished all the tea friends were there. Next time pictures will be taken.
I love your blog, it is very informative!
Have a happy day!

Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier today. It's nice to meet you.

I think your new tea mug is lovely. Anything floral is always a great choice.

I'm always on the lookout for tea things as well. I hit a garage sale this morning, and I came away with a lovely Royal Albert teacup for only $1....the saucer is in two pieces, though, but with a bit of glue, it will be nearly as good as new. I mean, for $1 how can I go wrong.

Blessings to you,
Patti

What wonderful treasures you found! From the Goodwill find to the new teas to the postcards ... but I am really lusting over the unique teaspoon with a sundial on it. I'd love to know more about that pattern!
