Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday!
It has been quite the busy week here full of all kinds of creating.
My last post was a Mad Tea Party blog hop hosted by Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist. You may find it enjoyable to read and to see the whimsical table my daughter and I set. I even made the Mad Hatter's hat. I will share that in another post.
But today is for tea cups...so on we go to this weeks beauty!
Above you see one of my cups that I think is unique....at least a little.
Also, I am showing off a bit of vintage lace that I think has such a fab color of gray/green.
I know it looks a bit ratty, but I really love the color and texture as well as pattern.
I found it at an estate sale on my street. I was new to the neighborhood, and did not know the woman who passed on...only knew her to wave to as we walked by. When I went into her house for the sale, I was overwhelmed with a feeling of joy! The entire house felt so good, and I was sure this was the energy of the woman who lived there. So when I spotted this cup, it was like bringing home a treasure from a friends house! I brought home many items from that sale, and I really feel they have added to the joy in my home.
I love the gold trim. And I think it was only $5!
The flower is so pretty and seems to just flow around the cup. The leaves are an interesting shape as well.
I remember thinking what an odd shape for a handle....bat like even!
I thought the scalloped edge and the eyelets were beautiful.
This cup sits on a pedestal that also has eyelets.
Don't laugh, but I do not recognize this stamp! Is it HR or HHR?
I bet some of you know the maker.
I would really appreciate it if you could tell me : )
I covered this paper mache egg with a tissue paper transfer I created from an old French legal paper from the mid 1860s. I am still deciding what else I could do to it. You can view my newest free video on Tissue Paper Transfers by clicking on this LINK or going up the right hand side of my blog at the top and clicking on the picture of the tissue transfers.
