Here's one of my small teacups--I think I purchased it at an antique shop years ago--there was no saucer, and there isn't a stamp on the bottom of the cup, so I don't know anything about it, except that it's pretty, and the handpainting on it is beautiful. The pearlized finish and the gold leafing seem to lend a "fairy-like" air to it, don't you think? I am not a "teacup connoisseur" but I do have a collection of sweet cups that I love. Hop on over to Artful Affirmations to see links to all the beautiful teacups this week!

This was another plain, unfinished, wooden frame that I painted, sanded, and then embellished with Prima and Doodlebug flowers, rub-on words, paper doilies, and a bit of antique lace, an antique button, and word from an old children's book. The background paper is from the Madeline line by K & Company, and the sweet image is by Paper Whimsy.

I had decorated an unfinished wooden frame for a weekly challenge earlier this year; I didn't like the image that was in it, so I took that out, changed the frame a little, and added a Paper Whimsy image that I've had for awhile, along with some embellishments. A lot of fun to work on!
