anyone fancy a cuppa?

I thought I'd show you the pictures I took yesterday of my newly painted cup and saucer in action. We ran out of milk though, so I decided to have peppermint tea instead. It was very enjoyable indeed.



I wanted to show you that the underside of the saucer is also painted - here it is! I'm not a huge fan of ginger biscuits but recently I have really been craving them. I had a craft day with the lovely Sian on Tuesday and what did she offer me as soon as I stepped through the door? A cup of tea and some ginger biscuits! Hurrah for Sian! 

Time for a brew, me thinks...

  2. Ah it's nice that you think of him! Mr Pippa had a handpainted mug for valentines day so don't worry: he's not being left out :o)

  3. I love this idea! I'd never thought of painting my dishes. I've got a boring little set of white dishes right now that might look a little different in the near future :)

  7. getting old saw your work with wax i thought you would do more like heating the wax and use bits of card to drag the wax across the canvas or try drawing with tips or again using card of different sizes.good fun.try first with old tubes of paint.love to you both and GOD bless. SILLY PODDY
