Talk of the Tea Party
Blame the forthcoming release of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland—we’re mad about mismatched tea sets.
Rather than rob our grandmother’s china cabinet, we’re building our collection at The Cross. The Yaletown décor store, now with a new online shop, has a cross-section of cute pots, platters, cups, creamers, saucers and sugar bowls. And all kinds that are simply white, so while our set is mixed, our shades match, making the Alice in us still whimsical, but very much grown-up.
Bottom’s up and down the rabbit hole.
