A Busy Tea Time Tuesday
This teacup is Japanese Lustreware . You can see why it has been given that name. Look at the luster and shine. You can see my reflection in the bottom of the teacup as I took a picture of it. I have a lot to do before I am ready for the Lake Lawrence Christmas Bazaar this weekend. I have been up later than usual finishing Wee Little Sheep, felted balls, yarns, weavings...as usual, I don't have half what I had planned ready for this bazaar.A cup of black tea helps bolster me for a few hours more work.I will listen to Christmas carols too, they help keep me in the mood for Christmas crafting. Look at how neatly these little sheep line up for me. Wouldn't it be nice if my real sheep would? I have 4 of these Lustreware teacups & saucers. Although they are a matching set, each one is unique in that the details show they were hand painted. They vary oh- so- slightly.The bottoms of the cups have no markings, but the saucer bottoms say "HAND PAINT, Made in Japan". To see more teacups , tea settings, and 'all things tea', just click onto the names of the ladies listed below~now I must get back to work! I am looking forward to taking tea with these ladies during my breaks.
