We end most evenings with a lovely cup of sleepy time tea. I purchased these two tea cups and saucers years ago with the intent to paint on them and sell them, but they got packed away and forgotten. I stumbled upon them a week or so ago, looking for something else. I decided to retire our morning coffee mugs for tea cups for our evening ritual. Although they would be fun to paint, these days, my current surfaces are more often wooden or treasures I've harvested from the beautiful beaches along the coast of Maine.
