Tea (and bugs) with the Caravan

hello Lovelies! I found out about the great store, online or not, named "Caravan", through the clever Victoria and her sfgirlbybay blog. Here are a few of its tea-related items. Beautiful and sweet, aren't they? Now, they hold something that is NOT for the weak-hearted, but that with my love for bugs I really want, is a set of bugs magnets for the fridge! Hooray! enjoy! -Beautymist

A House Tour Not to Be Missed!

I really love these vignettes from Tara's and Ari's home, seen at ATNY. I love the bugs collection. It adds a nice touch to a modernist interior. Enjoy!-Beautymist.
