…but it doesn’t stop me from dreaming about tea-themed goodies, like this print from RansomStone on Etsy:

Two retro reminiscences I’m really digging: a 1950s Jim Flora woodcut, now being sold as a limited edition on eBay, and New York’s 40th anniversary rehashing of the magazine’s inaugural issue. The past is not even past….

And/or, perfectly acceptable goods with which to lavish me for Valentine’s Day:

“Alice’s Tea Party” limited edition print, $55, via kjsdesign on Etsy

Sterling silver teapot necklace, $60, via ballandchain on Etsy

White porcelain teapot, $85, via New Moon Studio on Etsy
