vintage teacup from little eye on etsy
It’s February, which means the only thing sustaining any of us until the first 50 degree evening brings us a downpour to wash all the road salt away is pretty much junk food, our favorite tv shows streaming, and bright pops of color almost constantly.
Even though the fresh, white snow is beautiful (and will continue to get taller and taller and still beautiful after the coming three-day Nor’Easter we’re supposed to get, it’s still white. So white. So endlessly white.
I’ve been knitting with bright colors on my needles (most recently: turquoise and orange) and listing brightly colored objects in the Etsy shop to keep my eyes open. They’ve put me in charge of revamping the kitchen at work at possibly the most daring time of year for me, colorwise. I think I’m using Stefanie Hiebert’s retro living room as my color inspiration. Lunch break won’t know what hit it!

I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time… is it because I have a bad habit of turning old things in to new things? Or is it my insatiable search for the perfect vintage tea cup? Whatever it is, I don’t mind. The kitchen is covered in wax and now I have a bunch of new, pretty things to share.
this tea cup is everywhere
These are retailing from $8.95 to $12.95, and will be listed in my shop over the coming days. The tea cups and saucers are enhanced with an unscented soy wax and wick, and are suitable for washing and reusing for tea time once the wax is gone.
my favorite so far
Each one of these is different, the one just above is my favorite so far. Navy blue and orange tones are so nice, and contrasted with the whiteness of the porcelain and the wax. Simple pleasures!
Butterfly Mug, $6.95 from Little Eye on Etsy
Listed this pretty one in my shop last night. The lip curls out which is lovely for tea. The blue/brown combination is one of my favorites!
