When you are making something for yourself you tend to use ALLLLLLL the things you like....roses, gold, shabby, and antique! Which is of course WHY there is monogram of a gold P!
Wait, I forgot to mention the dragon fly perched on the lip of the antique cup! I had been hoarding that dragon fly for weeks! You can get one similar from Renea Bouquets in her Etsy shop. Don't say I didn't warn you that they are addicting!
And since I knew this caddy was for ME, I splurged and cut out two files! I am using THE CUTTING CAFE's Stationary Caddy. Yes, my caddy is double sided! It was very easy to make it double!
I wanted mine to be very sturdy and shabby, so I covered both sets after I put them together with vintage papers & modge podge. Added some coats of gold paint, splatters, mists, and grunged them up a bit with an ink pad.
Here is a photo looking down at the top of the caddy. Yes those are real screws! Since I used recycled glass knobs, I wanted to secure them properly. My tea caddy won't be losing a foot anytime soon!
I can't wait to fill this up with pretty tea bags, hot cocos, sugar cubes, and fancy smancy spoon! My little shaker will hold cinnamon!
Looks like I need to host a tea party soon!
Hope your Friday is amazing!
