Drinking tea is such a lovely ceremony, what with the dainty cups and small spoons and little dishes reserved only for steeped tea bags. The aroma is such a huge part of that experience. Sadly, I’m finding that one can only drink so much tea in a day. So why not pull those luscious scents into our lives in other ways? This was my thinking when this idea popped into my head. I whipped up a batch of small Earl Grey tea soaps (see my instructions below) and folded them into individual tissue tea bags.
We love ideas on how to reuse old tech, and have blogged some great ways to reuse old light bulbs before, including some rather nifty terrariums. This project from ReadyMade adds yet another use for the old light bulb, a bud vase. Using an old incandescent light bulb and 2 feet of 3/32-inch aluminum welding rod, Tim Park, has created a modern looking bud vase that is light on the wallet and high on design.
