This is the tea set that started it all. One of my bestest friends Margo S. was moving and she gave me this tea set that was given to her. It is from Italy and has the colors of my livingroom dining room not to mention the tropical feeling about it. I found this tea pot at a garage sale for $3.00 and had to have it. A few days later I made this tea box. Now notice the colors in it are the same as in the tea set and the tea pot. Jamaica is my favorite place in the world...so far!
A great friend Bonnie G found this frame and thought I could do something with it...as she said "it is so beautiful, it would be ashame for it to be thrown away". I agreed and made the glass tray with the reverse painting on it. You can see how together it looks so beautiful and I love it for so many reasons....including my sons first two words together were "HOT TEA" which is Painted on the inside of the tea box! By repurposing, reusing, and being creative I have a tea set to treasure!
