i’m one of those heathens who never ever makes tea in a teapot. i even sometimes leave the tea bag in my cup while i’m drinking it (gasp!) it would probably make more sense to start making tea like a civilized person, as it would mean that i could have 2… maybe 3 cups at a time. this is a good plan.
as a kid, friends of my parents had the most beautiful mid-century modern house situated on a hilltop that overlooked a valley (all mountains and vineyards and awesomeness). but i didn’t care about the view, i was only interested in the house. it was a single storey design with split levels and low ceilings – made basically entirely out of wood and glass. each room was on a different level and my brother and i used to explore from the bedrooms at the top making our way down through the tv room, kitchen, dining room, formal living room and guest bedrooms at the bottom. it was magic. then they moved, sold the house and it got demolished. i think i cried the day i found out.
i just LOVE liivia’s photos. something incredibly comforting about them. she has great a knack for colour, too.
normann copenhagen sells nice stuff
a walk in bookcase is almost more appealing than a walk in closet (almost)
the rest of the house is pretty darn amazing too…
what an amazing idea if you don’t have much of a garden (or a garden at all) and you want to grow your own veggies
i might have to get this cup to drink my tea out of at the office, as we are faced with severe cup politics – don’t use my cup and i won’t use yours kind of thing.
