Tea Cup Tuesday-Tea in the Art Room



Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today I am having tea while I work in my room.
It's a bit messy, but that is inevitable! Lol.
I try to begin my morning with drawing. 
And a cup of warm tea to get comfy with.
Today is full of sun. Which is a lovely change.


I want to thank you all who wrote me encouraging comments
about the drawings I shared.
Thank you so much!
You have no idea how much your kind words help me keep trying.
 
My tea cup today is a lovely violet cup I found in England a few years back.


The tea cup is a sweetie with beautiful hand painted violets.
I have shared this beautiful thistle teapot before, it is made by Wade.
I just love it too.


The swirl design along with the scalloped gold edge give this cup an elegant and romantic feel.
(mmmm. a nice warm cup of assam!)


It was manufactured by Embassy Ware in Fondeville England.

**************and just for fun**************

Here is the intro to the children's Beatrix Potter DVD series.
My children and I have loved these stories since I first saw them.
My kids are all grown up now, but the recent rains here reminded me of it.
About 2 and a half minutes in she makes herself tea. It is very quaint and comfy.
The blue transferware cup and the silver tea strainer are beautiful.
I hope you like it.
It is a harbinger of Springtime...



***************

Creative Workshops is hosting a new jewelry class of mine.
I am very excited about it!
 I will be mentioning it on and off as we get closer to the opening. 
And I will be hosting a Giveaway to celebrate my 4th Blogging Anniversary in April,
I will give away a free class to a lucky winner!

Soulful Adornments

In this class we create jewelry for your soul! 
Artful, affirming, helpful, and inspirational!
We learn to make our own focal pieces easily and
inexpensively with  this simple soldering technique.
I chose a Mother Mary Image as for these two pieces.
The image on the right is from Graphics Fairy
The other one came from a card in a very old Bible I found.
You can use your own artwork or any other images that speak to your theme and heart. 
 Thank you for coming over to visit!
I so enjoyed seeing your many gorgeous tea cups and tea settings last week!
If you would like to join in just go and post with your tea cup.
Then come back here and link up below.
Martha and I love to come over and visit you!
Keep Martha and her family in your hearts, good thoughts and prayers if you can.
Hugs,
Terri

Hello Terri:
It is nice to see your studio...and I noticed that you have a book on symbols...How funny in my last trip to Canada, I could get a French written book on Symbols as well...what a coincidence? Uh?...congratulations on your new classes...the domino book and the jewelry sound very appealing...
Thanks for sharing as always..

That is such a pretty teacup. And, the photos are wonderful. Your morning looks so comfortable and inspiring. Your post makes me want to start tomorrow morning with a hot cup of tea in my studio. :-)

This is such a lovely post combining your love of art and tea! I could imagine myself in your seat! I love to see other people's art rooms, they always seem to capture people's artistic essence so well and I like to see people's desk layout and storage ideas. I love your violet cup and the tea pot is a chintz pattern that is a favourite of mine, I have a gravy boat in this design, so it is not likely to feature in my tea time rituals anytime soon! Have a lovey day! Elaine x

The video is precious.

Hi Terri,
You always share the most delightful china. That teapot with thistles is so unique!
And thanks for letting us peep into your art den, the place of all beautiful and inspired creations!!!
This week, my photo in the Tea Cup Tuesday link came out very "creative", too :) but it wasn't my intention...
Have a great week, dear Terri.

Veronica Roth said...

Hello Terri,
It's lovely to see another artist's studio. I usually take huge mugs of tea into mine...lol. Funny, I wanted to photograph my violet cups for this post as well. Violets are such perfect spring flowers, aren't they? I sometimes candy the blossoms for cake decorations, especially for my youngest child, who's birthday is in April.

Dorthe said...

Such a cosy and wonderful room, to have tea in, while being creative or inspired from all the materials around.
The teapot is such a happy pattern and colours, and the cup is adorable, dear Terri.
Hugs from Dorthe

Taking tea in your Art room must be delightful, it looks beautiful. My Mother had a cup with violets and it was always one of my favourites.
I love Beatrix Potter books and have some which I love.

Lovely way to begin your day. That book "Secret Language of Symbols" looks very intriguing. I have enjoyed seeing your special art space. Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts...

I have that video and watch it many times myself. It is a beautiful movie and also calming. Especially nice to watch with grandchildren as you snuggle together on the sofa and drink peppermint tea.

Your workshop looks so full of creative possibilities and your blog shows your endless and beautiful creativity. The teacup and teapot look right at home there.

Thank-you for hosting this Tea Cup Tuesday blog party Terri, it has enriched my life.
