A Nice Cuppa...

A cuppa Angelina, original watercolor, 9" x 11"
It's been a while since I touched on my cup obsession...
Or Angelina for that matter....
A cuppa tea, original watercolor, 9" x 11"
Glass teapots have been left in the dust too...dommage :(As a serious cupaholic this is quite remiss on my part...ahemI will have to work overtime to catch up on lost cup obsessions... Not to forget former obsessions with "mini" cups!Remember the days when everything had to miniature or forgetaboutit! And that includes MINI rings and bracelets! One cup I havn't forgotten about, even in this freezing cold weather is a nice cuppa green tea ice cream = YUM!~
BON MARDI!

Lily says she likes your Lily-putian post of miniatures. Avez-vous une petite chien?

I love that Angelina cup painting.

Bon Mardi. I still love that tea cup wiht the blue edges and the the flowers. One of my kitchens was painted that blue, Paradise Lost it was called, the paint color not the kitchen....hope you are staying warm and cozy. Are the walls all done now?

I love the rings. I bought two old Quimper cups in Paris a while back. I'll try to photo them and send. One's really a mug.

I have wondered for some tim. Do you paint directly, or do you make a pencil sketch first?

And this picture recalls some nice memories from Angelina.
Mmmm Mont Blanc cake...

I just love that cup with the rose on it and the plate behind with the bird on it. Cups are fun to collect. Even as rings. :)
