Many that know my work will not be surprised that I love Teacups! As a child I loved Tea Time at my Granny's home, nestled amongst the fields in Dorset, I would have cold milk in my cup always with a slice of home made cake! Nowadays I've moved onto Tea and using my Granny's china cups always brings back these happy memories.
She had a particular blue and white mug that would hold her morning cuppa and this was the start of my inspiration one day. I was sat out in the garden drinking from this cup and watching the Robin searching for worms amongst my flower beds! Pencil and paper never far away I sketched this little friend balancing on the cup. With touches of fun polka dot and subtle snow flake fabric designs his character started to take shape. I love that moment when a new idea that you have imagined in your mind starts to appear in front of you!
You can collect all four colour ways of this little fellow, as Art Prints (5x7"), Notecards, Gift Tags & Christmas Cards (complete with a little song from our new friend!).
I love felt pin cushions for Tea Cups
Have a cup of Tea and join us for a Sing A Long as you visit my Etsy Shop to see the entire range. I hope they will bring as much delight to you as they have to me.
