travelling with tea

i have to show off my wonderful (but poorly photographed) new tea cups. i had them specially made by a potter on etsy, mepottery, who has loads of other wonderful things. i wanted a stoneware or ceramic cup that would fit in my cupholder in my car and i couldn't find any without a handle or that were slim enough on the bottom to fit. it's terribly inconvenient to have to hold a mug of hot tea on the entire drive to work in the morning.

fern, the oh-so-curious cat who loves to be photographed. she was "helping" with the photo shoot of the mugs. perhaps that is why i couldn't seem to focus correctly.....

Hi Laura,

Fern must have been a big help with photographing the mugs. I can just imagine! The tea cups turned out really well and will be great in the car.

BTW - I have a pic of Hazel on my blog. I always think of her when I read your blog!

Those are wonderful mugs!!! What a great idea. So nice of Fern the cat to help out. Pono, my dog, likes to help out too, sometimes. It usually involves a nose, right in the middle of what I am trying to do.

That Fern is such a poser! She is such a cutie.

Nice tea cups...very warm and earthy.

Cool tea cups. I am currently hooked on a combination of Stash chai spice and green tea, which I drink iced. Yum!
