Crafty Tuesday

I have goodies to share today, but they were not crafted by me. Far from it, in fact.

I must say I have been doing very poorly on a few of my resolutions, and the “making time for scrapping” is at the top of that list. I just haven’t found the time. There is always next week, I guess.

But, check these out…

They are handcrafted porcelain teacups hand-carried to our home from China!

The photos really don’t do them justice. They are each just a little different, but all that beautiful porcelain robin egg blue color.

Our friend Davin, who was visiting from Chicago this weekend, brought them back from his travels to China. He says he purposely picked ones that were a little “sturdier” so that we would use them, especially with the girls. Although I think their intended purpose is tea, he suggested we could use them for ice cream dishes, maybe?

That just might work around this house!

They come stacked in this little basket and just look so pretty on our countertop.

And they are so pleasant to photograph. No running away, or quick motions. No goofy faces.

What about you – any craftiness this week? Or maybe someone else’s artistry that is brightening up your house that you’d like to share?

    Oooh, those are lovely! I love that delicate blue color. Nice pictures of them, too! See, it’s fun to seek out different subjects! Now that I’ve started, I’m seeing more opportunities everywhere I look.

    Very cool! I think ice cream is a great idea. They look like the perfect size for a little taste of the cold stuff!

    Beautiful bowls. I love the color. You’ve inspired me to blog about some new art in my house, but I really hope I have some time soon to get back to sewing. I feel disappointed that I hadn’t had time to make anything yet this year.
