the teacups made me do it

check out this really lovely gift idea - on sale TODAY, as they clearly indicate, at red envelope. it's an aromatherapy growing kit that comes with organic soil and chamomile, lavender and lemon balm seeds. their aromas combine into a naturally mood-lifting scent, and how adorable are they for your desk at work, your kitchen window sill, even your nighttable. and by "your" i mean "my." or the person you're "gifting" it to.

it's funny, actually, because just this week i saw a set of pretty white teacups at starbucks that had a similar variety of textures as these pots. this set ($19.95) with a nice box of tea, or even by itself, would also make a great gift.

and the teacups made me fall deeply in love with the idea of handle-less mugs, which i decided to wait on. and i'm glad i did, because i then promptly saw and purchased eight of these almhult tumblers at ikea for 29 cents each. literally. i mean really, could you just die?

do NOT say they are flower pots, they are tumblers. check the ikea site if you don't believe me.
