Virtual Tea Party








I had so much fun photographing my teacups last week. I set them up in nice little rows, and felt like I was posing my models for a photo shoot. They were so patient and cooperative! I'm actually impressed with myself for not breaking or chipping a single one of 'em. I wish I could remember how many I counted, but I really have no idea. Some of them are in several photos, and some of them didn't quite make the cut - but each one has its own story. Many were passed on from Grandmas, while others were flea market finds or antique shop bargains, and a few were gifts from friends...but they're all very special to me. I almost have enough cups to invite all of you for tea! Do you take sugar, honey or milk?

  3. Oohhh...they're all so pretty! I think the one with the wide fuchsia banding is my favorite - it just really stands out.

  4. Thanks so much! That happens to be one of my favorites too. It has a really unique shape. I found two of them at an antiques shop in Lexington, when I lived there. :)
