Two lighthouses for the end of summer.
I bought a whole box of cups, saucers, and 2-handled cups (?) in the below style so there will be lots of future scene in them.
This cup and saucer make me think, rough seas ahead!
The last 2 for now are 2 lighthouses.
The ocean and snowy tiny worlds are rarer because I have to find the right kind of cup to put them in. Somehow, flower designs don’t work for me and they are what I find most when I am in the thrift store.
Forget-Me-Nots and Lily of the Valley decorate this cup.
This is a glass sugar bowl, I think? It came with a creamer which I will make into something another day.
A bright yellow house. It is fun to use the same cup and using the colors of the decoration, come up with a variety of designs.
This Tiny World is made on a lovely cup with Paul Revere’s historic ride.
Winter in Boston didn’t show up this year until March! We had enough snow to cover the ground yesterday but it was pretty much all gone by this morning. I will be happy if I don’t see any more real snow until next November at the earliest.
This kind of snow I can deal with. And OOPS! Ignore that hair on my snowy hill!
Another tea cup with violets.
And a mid-century Modern cup and saucer, made in Germany and found in a thrift shop.
I am working hard to have a good selection of my work for the Smithsonian Show. I will be at the opening gala in less than 3 weeks! Because I am so focused on getting ready for the show, I won’t be putting anything new into my Etsy shop until May 1.
Tiny World 1
I went to a tag sale at a church in my neighborhood and someone had apparently donated their collection of violet decorated teacups. You will be seeing several pincushions ahead with violets!
Tiny World 2
And here is a pic of my December Tiny Worlds-
I just had to get a few finished up for the show. The finish line is in sight! I set up tonight and tomorrow evening is the opening gala.
My etsy shop will be empty for the weekend (except for the instant download patterns) and then there will be an update on Monday, Dec. 18.
These two are the last for now.
I love topiary- And felt topiary is SO much easier to deal with than the living kind!
My studio needs a massive clean and so that is going to occupy at least some of my (US) holiday weekend. If you are having a long weekend, hope you are doing something fun!
