and again I say,
Today, I have deviated from teapots temporarily! I will show you my teacups, well, mine and my late mother's. But first a story. My mother collected tea cups and they were on display above top of her cabinets. I have them now plus the ones I collected. When our daughter would come home at Christmas with her children, we would have over her best friend with her children. We would have our Christmas tea. It was my custom to let each child pick a teacup and a teapot for their tea. I have lots of photos scrapped over the years of this, but can't share them, because I don't know how to blur out the their faces. Anyway, since we are downsizing I came up with this idea to share my cups with my Bible study group for Valentines. I photographed them with the candy and wrapping and attached tags or bookmarks. I included on the back a verse from our Philippians Bible study and that they are from me and my mother.
|These are the cups all filled, wrapped and tagged.|
|Teacups before wrapping. Although there are 19 teacups wrapped some of them were pairs or even four of one of them.|
|I wanted you to see the saucer of the one because it was so unique.|
|I used a SU! punch to punch the tops of the tags, and Spellbinders heart dies. I also used embossing folders to make texture on the hearts before die cutting them. The smallest hearts are the punch outs of a border punch. I always save them. That was fun gluing them on! The dsp and cs was from my stash, as well as the white grosgrain ribbon. The Happy Valentines Day is from SU! Teeny Tiny Greetings. I am linking my tags with Try it on Tuesday: Love is in the air.|
And this is my beverage tonight as I do my blog post. I know, hilarious, right? I am drinking out of a mug! LOL
This is for T Stands for Tuesday over at Altered Book Lover.
