Tea Towels and Tea-themed Note Cards

Unfortunately there's not a World Market store in my area, but my girlfriend and I went to their Lansing store recently when we were in the area for a tea.  I purchased a tin of Downton Abbey tea that was blended exclusively for them by Republic of Tea [it'll be in tomorrow's post], and a tea towel.  I can't pass up tea-themed tea towels.

The tea towel is cotton muslin.  It's difficult to see in the photo, but the elephant teapot says, "Tea Please!" and the small elephant sugar bowl says, "Sugar Please!"  It was $9.99.

There was a Tuesday Morning store a few doors down from World Market so, of course, we had to pay them a visit.  I always look in their stationery section because they usually have tea-themed note cards by Punch Studio.  This visit didn't disappoint because I found two. Both packages were $4.99 each.

The box below contained ten note cards, with decorative envelopes to match.

When my girlfriend came over recently she brought me the cutest tea-themed gift bag.

One of the gifts inside was a box of eight tea-themed note cards.  Aren't they lovely?  They immediately reminded me of blogging friend, Judith at Lavender Cottage.

And lastly, when I was recently in a local Meijer's store waiting for some digital photos to be printed, I browsed their housewares section to wile away the time, and found a terrycloth tea towel. Terrycloth is my favorite for everyday use, so it had to come home with me even if the colors aren't quite right for my kitchen.

Have you bought or received any tea-themed items recently?


  1. The cards are sweet Phyllis, and thank you for thinking of me. I have the tools, I just need to find time to make some pretty tea note cards myself.

  2. Some fun finds! I haven't been shopping much thanks to our weather and the fact that "shopping" is a couple of hours away. But one day soon I will get there, hope there will be some things for me to find!

  3. I'm also attracted to tea themed things! I'll have to go to Tuesday Morning to look for those cards. Punch Studio has the cutest vintage design holiday cards such as Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's. Barnes and Nobles carries them.

  4. Hi Phyllis, I have just discovered your beautiful blog on another beautiful blog - Garden Of Daisies, and have fallen in love with both of you, lol! Tea and all things tea are popular in Australia, so I am enjoying your blog and have added it to my favorites list. I have about 60 hand embroidered tea cosies in my vintage linen collection, and have had them on public exhibition several times. As for tea towels and table cloths, well you will just have to have a peep at my blog!
    I'll be back to visit you soon :-)

  5. What great finds! I am going to be on the lookout for those teapot notecards next time I'm in a Tuesday Morning store!


Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
