We found the inspiration for our Nanaos Dragon Pullover in the streets of Budapest on this amazing manhole cover.
Check out some other cool manhole imagery from Budapest.
We found these on a blog called Manhole Miscellany.
Here at Tea, we’ve been wondering whether the image on the pullover is really a dragon. Or could it be an eagle?
To us, no matter what you call it, the Nanaos Dragon Pullover is one sweatshirt boys will love to wear back to school and all throughout the fall. It’s sure to be warm, comfortable conversation-starter.
What do you think? dragon or eagle?
My Nonna had an amazing set of nesting dolls when I was little. They were my favorite things to play with when I visited her house (or at least, a close second to crushing potato chips in her vintage coffee grinder), so I was pretty excited when Laura and Emily brought back these beautiful nesting doll sets from their Old world Hungary inspiration trip. They immediately made way to my desk so I could ‘be inspired’ by them, but really I just wanted to play. Every time I played with my grandmother’s dolls I was always amazed that when I thought I had made my way to the smallest doll, there was even a tinier one inside. Turns out even now, I still get excited by this. “Oooh, there’s an EVEN smaller doll after this one!” I’d announce to my coworkers, who were actually working and probably not that interested in my toys.
This set’s tiniest doll even had a painted face! Thrilling!

Recently art blog BOOOOOOOM! and the Vancouver Sun teamed up on the Little Drifters project. While they are no longer taking submissions it’s still a fabulous fun activity for the whole family. Build a little boat using nothing but natural materials, sail it on some water and enjoy!
See all Little Drifter submissions here.

July’s contest was all about sharing photos of your little citizens enjoying summer vacation.
Quynh Vu is July’s winner:
Our daughters Sammie and Taylor at Noguchi Gardens in Costa Mesa. They were having a fun time exploring the water fountain and climbing the rocks and out of the blue decided to show a bit of sibling affection. We love Tea clothing because of it’s unique & beautiful design and the girls love comfortable dresses that allow them to explore their world.
Take a look at July’s honorable mentions below and read more about them on Facebook.
Thanks to everyone who participated. Please continue sharing your photos and experiences with us on Facebook! August’s contest will be posted here soon.
Tošo Dabac was a Croatian photographer, whose work largely focused on the streets of Zagreb between 1920 and his death in 1970. A contemporary of other famous European photographers of the time such as Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson, his photographs have been exhibited widely throughout the world.
Dabac’s work portrays the moments of daily life on the streets of Zagreb – people having conversations, commuting to work, walking their dogs, or shoveling snow. Photographing the same locations for decades, his work covers an array of human experiences within one city.
You can find more of his work here. Or, if you’re visiting Zagreb, stop by the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art to visit his archives in person.
