I have recently bought a Tea Trolley!! I purchased it to display my teacup candles and other vintage knick – knacks in my friends shop Chillimoon in Clitheroe. My lovely friend is giving it a new look with some Annie Sloane paint and pretty decapage. Meanwhile I have been admiring tons of trolleys on Pinterest. 🙂 I had no idea they could be so versatile!
So there is more to a tea trolley than something sturdy and efficient to wheel out the puddings. I could actually have one in just about every room in the house! Do you own a tea trolley? What do you use yours for?
I have a week off work ( hurrah!) so I thought I had better crack on with sorting out my teacups. I have been having a bit of a craft fair hiatus recently ~ partly because January and February can be a wee bit quiet for craft fair folk anyway and partly because my teacup collection has been spiralling
a little out of control in the spare room. I’m really lucky that sometimes my friends and family hunt me out teacups too. And people have even been known to leave carrier bags of crockery on my doorstep. Yes I must be a crazy teacup lady!
As much as I appreciate their generousity , sometimes the teacups are not ones I would have chosen myself. And If I don’t take a shine to them I find myself losing the passion to make them into candles for my stall. I know ,I know , I sound a right ungreatful so and so don’t I…… my guilty consience has not stopped me from filling four carrier bags full for the charity shop though!
I still have plenty left to turn into pretty candles and trinket stands, don’t you worry. I thought I would try out making some coloured teacup candles for a change. Don’t you think they will make perfect Valentines or Mothers Day Gifts.:)
If you would like to know how to make teacup candles check out my Mini tutorial 🙂 in an older post.
ps ~ I will still be genuinely pleased if I find any teacups on my doorstep.:-D
