The Tea Room Medicine Cabinet

The medicine cabinet in the tea room is designed specifically for those that want to peek inside! Filled with antique jars that contain assorted dried herbs, lavender, rose petals, sandalwood, and even green tea, it is arranged with little nicknack's to amuse. On the upper right shelf, there is a lavender wand from a craft class from years gone by and several handcrafted roses my mother made using fresh ginkgo leaves.
These assorted magnets are displayed on the inside door of the medicine cabinet. Most all pertain to tea in some way or another. The small bear magnet was a giveaway from Celestial Seasonings, tucked in a box of tea. The panda is receiving a cup of hot tea from a teapot being poured by a butterfly and bumblebee with the quote "The spirit of delight comes in small ways." ~Robert Louis Stevenson
A fragile rose pin, crafted from a real rose, too delicate to wear, graces one of the shelves. The Dragon pearl jasmine tea is tucked in a corner. This green tea is beautiful, each pearl hand rolled, the fragrance divine, floral tones perfectly balanced with the tea. Almost too pretty to use!
Most guests comment that there is too much to look at and read in the powder room! I never really know if they have peeked into the medicine cabinet or not.

I love it! This is the most clever display in any tea room powder room I have seen. I will definitely visit the powder room when I come for tea at Sweet Remembrances!

What a charming display. Thank you for sharing this. I love the idea of special magnets on the inside of the medicine cabinet door and just added some favorites to the one in my guest bathroom. Thank you for that idea.
