Dawn's husband is a genius! (Scroll down in her post to see his tea drawer idea.) I will let her decide whether or not she informs him of that or decides to keep him humble. Here is a peek at my tea drawer and it has been such a beautiful thing! Not having to climb on a step stool to reach the tea shelf means that I have been enjoying more tea instead of coffee lately (which is probably a good thing because even decaf coffee has some caffeine in it which is not good for those of us prone to panic attacks). I've even noticed the kids asking for tea more frequently, hence the two boxes of peppermint tea which is a favorite with 3 out of the 4 children in this house. Aslan Tea comes in second. It is actually called Madagascar Vanilla Red but the lion on the cover reminded them of Narnia, so... whoops... looks like I am out if it right now. I guess I better get some more. Um, Mr. Sun and Candlelight, please don't tell my husband about the second part of that great idea unless it is also with a wink and a smile! Thanks!
I miss my tea drawer. I had a very nice one in our last place. But here we have a shortage of drawers. Plenty of cabinet space, though. So the teas are once more stacked in the cupboard. But we purged mercilessly when we moved this summer and so the stash is down to half a dozen boxes and a couple of tins.ReplyDelete
That is too funny! I moved my tea to a drawer, too, after I saw Dawn's tea drawer picture on her blog! Why didn't I ever think of that? My tea had been in a deep dark cabinet and I had several repeat boxes b/c I never new what i really had! I, too, find my dc requesting it more now.ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny? Such a simple idea... that I never would have thought of on my own but we are loving it!ReplyDelete
That *is* a neat idea, and so pretty!ReplyDelete
