Irresistible Charms

Every now and then I spot some supplies on Etsy that are just impossible to resist - and, if I'm honest - 90% of the time they are tea themed.

It's sad but true that if you stick a teacup or teapot on something I will want it, and tea-themed supplies means tea-themed sewing which is always good, right? Ahem.

My latest Etsy purchase along these lines was a batch of charms from WalkingChick - teacups! teapots! teabags! and sewing machines! (yes, I know there's no tea connection there but they were still rather lovely) ...... I'm not going to start making charm jewellery any time soon, but I'm definitely hoping to use these to embellish my pieces somehow. The teacups and teapots are especially lovely - those little flowers! Wonderful!

You and your tea!! Just kidding, they are very cute. I happen to be a coffee drinker so it's a bit hard for me to understand the tea addiction, but I'm glad you love it so!

I bought them to decorate tags for teacup related things I am making based on my teacup collection. Have fun with them!

I have the same charms! I got mine from Crafty Charms in the UK from eBay, hopefully that's useful info for you ;)

These are so cute! And the perfect selection for a tea-loving crafter. Very tempting!

Ooo I am currently making some teapot covered knickers (as you do...) and was trying to think of a way of embellishing them. This has inspired me!

I'll let you know when I finish the knickers too if your tea love stretches this far!

That sounds like a fun (if slightly crazy!) project, Clare - please do link me to it when you're finished :)
