On Christmas Eve this year, my sister and I gave my aunt a framed family tree of 5 generations on her side. We did a lot of research via Ancestry.com. In return, we each got vintage tea cups that belonged to my Great-Grandmother Florence. It was a family-style Christmas! I love these cups. They're so dainty and delicate. Being careful, I've been drinking tea out of my pink one. Makes me feel like I'm back in the day, penning a letter to a friend at my writing desk. Pouring caramel colored tea from my silver tea pot. My house is slowly being filled with vintage items from my family. It makes it that much cozier! Did you notice my reflection in the top picture? Hard to hide in a shiny tea pot!
I have a passion for stories--especially those told through art and fashion. I am a crafter, jewelry designer and sewer. I cosplay and costume with a 1960s Singer machine, and read everything I can on late 19th and early 20th century design. I love to create and entertain. I believe the beauty is in the details.
