Teacup Swap

I think it's funny how what we choose for others says so much about ourselves.
Last week I received this sweet hand painted demitasse from Yvonne in a teacup swap hosted by Pat.
My first impression of Yvonne is that she is "earthy"- as in down to earth, decorates in earth tones, drinks tea from earthenware mugs and her poetry makes me think of her as an earth mother.
But the delicate cup and saucer she sent me is bright, blue and hand painted and makes me think of her water color paintings.
Every time I see it, I will think of your art, Yvonne.
Thank you so much!

Gorgeous colours - and clever you placing it with that scarf for it's photo opportunity! Perfect colour match.

That tea cup has a very unusual handle doesn't it?
