I blog about my jewelry inspirations. Readers will find that various elements of nature are my inspirations. Of course, I include jewelry making tips. This blog also includes some of my favorite Etsy shops, bead shops and jewelry customers.
I have four tea cups like the one above. I keep 1 of the 4 in my "jewelry room" where I go to create my jewelry and cards. I use it as a photo prop because it provides a nice white background for earrings to hang from and I love the rich look of the gold trim on it. The other 3 are in the kitchen and I use them to drink my tea in my "jewelry room". I find the tea and crafting relaxing. These are special cups to me because they were given to me by my husband's grandmother about 45 years ago. I love items that are connected with family.
I enjoy tea even more when someone else makes it. My girlfriends and I enjoy going to tea rooms to be waited on and sample different kinds of teas as well as catch up on gossip.
I have made earrings and cards to celebrate tea. I have several humorous cards with "Tea is the Cup of Life" on the front. I love the humorous saying
inside which reads "A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is
until she gets into some hot water.--Eleanor Roosevelt".
I hope that all the tea drinkers find a special tea from Santa on the 25th!
