I love tea. LOVE it! And my favorite is Chai. So it will come as no surprise that I shelled out an outrageous $14.95 for Oprah Chai Tea at Starbucks a couple weeks ago. I think I got four cups of tea from what was in there, but that's because I also like my tea strong...like three and four bags of tea strong. At any rate, I had this great tin left over so I decided to decorate it and combine this weeks Color My Heart's Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, and Indian Corn Blue challenge with Heart2Heart's Spice of Life challenge.
I filled the center of the flower with beads secured with Liquid Glass--an absolutely critical supply to have on hand for a project like this.
The Sorbet ribbon was from a retired CTMH Red Collection, and the white is from Hobby Lobby.
The best part about this tin is it still has the wonderful Chai aroma. Every time I open it the spicy scent brings a smile. I don't think I'll be buying another tin, though. Yummy as it was, I bought it as a celebration for getting my novella turned into the publisher a day early. Call it a splurge. Now, I'll just settle for lifting the lid and inhaling while I drink my much more modestly priced Chai from Stash Tea.
Until next time,
