Many thanks to Ana over at the Well Appointed Desk for forwarding me this beautiful tutorial on illustrating teacups by Liz Steel.
I was browsing Pinterest looking for tea and knitting and I came across the tea art of Rebecca Jones. What’s not to love?

A few weeks ago Ana turned me on to some of the tea themed entries in the competition over the years.
A few weeks ago I saw this beautiful image on Pinterest:
I particularly want one of these:
Several weeks ago Hedgehog Fibres posted a photo on Instagram of her lovely new colorway, Teacup.
I was instantly smitten and had to have it. What could be more perfect for me than Teacup yarn? In fact, I ordered twice, on two different bases.
Then I started looking for the perfect shawl, that would showcase the lovely yarn. I settled on Ulmus by Kirsten Kapur and paired my lovely Teacup with a skein of yarn by Colorpurl, an MCN in Dark Cochineal Cherry.
And then I knit a lot. And some more. And then a bit more. And this past weekend I was finally done.
I still love that Teacup.
If you’re like me, you have quite the collection of teapots, teacups and mugs. I hate hiding these beauties in cupboards and am always looking for a way to display them. This post from Tidbits & Twine suggests adding a colored backdrop to best display a collection of varied items.
I don’t know if I have the talent or the patience, but I love this tutorial I found on making Teacup Shaped Envelopes from Oh My Handmade Goodness.
I’ve noticed quite a few cute woodland creatures coming across my stream of late. Do you want to add a few to your teatime?
