Hello friends. It has been so long.
I hope you knew I wasn't disappearing forever. Though I admit I've been away from the blog for far too long. I got too busy, and then I just got lazy. Shameful.
I promise I have a number of projects to report on from over my hiatus, and I'll start with these Mr & Mrs Mugs.
Among my previous sales of painted porcelain, I've done a number of these sets for a happy couple.
While I'd sold pairs of these as wedding gifts, I had yet to have a couple to give them to until this summer.
Then I suddenly had three! Three beloved couples married this summer within 3 weekends. So I got on it. Instead of the usual coffee/tea mugs I had sold, I decided to do some more traditional tea cups and saucers. I figured that, even if it was a wee bit girly for the gents, it felt more like wedding gift china.
One of these sets I decided to do in green, to mix things up a bit...
But wait! There is a special surprise or two waiting underneath.
On the saucer, I put each couple's wedding date and monogram.
And on the bottom of the teacup, a little heart.
For one couple, who had an apple theme to their wedding, the heart on the bottom became an apple instead.
OK, that's it for my first post back. As soon as I can wrangle my hubby photographer, some decent weather, and time off I will get photos of my new winter coat. I'm so pleased with it and can't wait to show it off.Pin It
