I was happy to slip into a sweater and take out my beloved polka-heart cup which I painted at an arts & crafts store a few years back. Maybe one day I'll make a whole set!
It was alot of fun to make. The hearts came out a bit darker than I expected, but it's cute just the same. I was really into the 'running-stitch' look at that time (still am actually!) and painted it onto the handle and bottom of the cup, as well as onto the cup-nook of the tea plate. Around the rim of the tea plate I wrote Hot Chocolate & Marshmallows, and Cinnamon Toast & Tea. My favorite things when the 'weather outside is frightful.'
The finishing touch was inspired by a cup my best childhood friend had when we were little. I remember drinking to the bottom of my juice and suddenly there was a little frog looking up at me! It was, of course, a decorative ceramic frog, but I was delighted and hoped to have such a cup one day. I made my own version by writing a little wish at the bottom of my cup: '...More Please!'
Emma Bridgewater, look out!
On another note, I've soaked my dried peas and am all set to make a nice, fragrant, nourishing pot of split pea soup. It'll be my first time making it, I'll let you all know if the recipe is any good.
Have a lovely day ladies, thanks for stopping by!
