I stumbled across this photo on Facebook last week and my mind immediately raced with possibilities. Tea and knitting all in one! Of course one needs a second teapot to brew the tea.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I’m enjoying a cup of tea I want to curl up with a good book and escape. These adorable BookCup book covers would be great if you’re reading a paper book!

If you’re looking for the perfect mug and tea spoon sets, you should look no further than Mud Pie. I can’t decide which is my favorite, but I think I like Pinkies Out the best.
