I love collecting and painting teacups in watercolors. The beautiful patterns and flowers on each teacup inspire me.
As Blaise Pascal (1656) said "Things are always at their best in their beginning". As I begin, share with me in Teacups Of Joy. I always feel renewed after a good cuppa and a little reading from a good book. The pleasure doubles when shared.
Here's another quote I love. "Let every bookworm, when in any fragrant, scarce, old tome he discovers a sentence, a story, an illustration, that does his heart good, hasten to give it." (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
I am a stay at home mum, have a great husband and 3 beautiful children. My home backs on to national park and is surrounded by very tall gum trees. There is not much of a garden so I content myself with the painted variety. It is peaceful here and away from the rat race.
