I love hand made objects. They have a certain spirit to them.
Each year I go to the student art sale at the Glassell school.
Each year it is my goal to come home with one tea cup.
Sometimes I come home with a little something extra.
This year I came home with the kitty print.
His name is Emeril!
I thought he looks a lot like my Teddy.
The tea pot came from Glassell, but not this year.
This is the new tea cup.
It is hand thrown porcelain and is very thin.
I have criteria for the perfect tea cup.
It must be pleasing to my eye.
It must feel good.
It must feel good in my hands.
And, IT must have a good feel.
You know ... the spirit of the cup .. the feeling of the artist and the clay.
Some years I've picked up a cup and put it right back down.
Not this year.
I knew immediately ... before I touched it ... that it was the one.
It called to me and I brought it home.
Just like the kitty print.
He called and I listened!
Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.
Wishing YOU well and a wonderful cup of tea.
