In all my sorting and sifting of closets and cupboards, I came across my collection of tea cups from Great Aunt Pearl. What a treasure and memory of such a fun lady who was full of personality. Combine that with the online pen/ink/watercolor sketchbook course I'm in the middle of which is led by a lovely Australian woman whose love of a good cup of tea inspires her to paint many of the beautiful cups it's served in. So I put together a listing in my shop that was inspired by this class. A beautiful china tea cup surrounded by meaningful text - in my case, a bit of the story of Aunt Pearl.
Do YOU have a special tea cup, piece of china, or vase etc. that tells a great story? Send me your story (100 words or less), along with a photo of the item and I'll immortalize it in pen/ink/watercolor.
Such a unique tribute to a special person you want to remember in a really special way. This also creates a memorable way to honor a loved one, or give it as a wedding gift featuring a watercolor of that chosen china/pottery pattern or special piece along with the little love story that led up to it. You could even buy a new mug or teacup that would match the artwork and wrap them up together.
You can order your own version and receive it in time for Christmas giving.
