Teacup Flowers

Do you like teacups? Floral, plain, tiny, dainty, and vintage? I love them all! My favorite thing to do while browsing through the aisles of a home goods store is to stop and breathe in the beauty of these exquisite things. I think one just cannot have enough of these!

And they aren’t just for tea you know that. Right? Let them overflow with some pretty blossoms!

Here is a set of 2 miniature watercolor pieces of dahlias, peonies, and a few buttercups in teacups. They are painted on cold pressed paper. Each is 5.5 inches in height and 4.5 inches in width. Look out for these beauties in my Etsy store!


One cup at a time

Painting these blue teacups in watercolor was such a pleasure. I used to see paintings of pretty and dainty teacups on Pinterest, and they always reminded me of some other time. Finally one day I was inspired to paint.

I remember seeing rows of dainty teacups in fine china adorning the shelves of the cabinet in my mom’s dining room. Looking back even further, I remember seeing them in my grandma’s kitchen. Hand painted and delicate, those exquisite teacups with matching saucers perched quietly on the high shelves must have listened intently to the conversations around the dining table, observing old and new generations coming together, absorbing their stories…….

I cannot look at teacups without reminiscing about old times!
