Why Teacups are particular: Celebrations and moments of calm


Persevering with my sequence on why teacups are particular…

Effective china teacups are related to particular events and when pals/household go to and due to this fact don’t sometimes get used a lot.


This affiliation (utilizing teacups = particular events) implies that for those who drink tea out of teacups frequently every single day turns into particular. They create a mini celebration and on the identical time a second of calm.

I’m very cautious with my classic cups and don’t use them that always, however I’m grateful to have an unbelievable assortment of contemporary patterned cups and saucers which might be appropriate for on a regular basis use. (Full disclosure: some days I’ve quite a lot of dishwashing by hand to do!)

I can select a cup to go well with my temper – whether or not I’m aspiring to sketch it or just drink from it.

These colored and patterned cups and saucers

  • make me glad
  • trigger me to get pleasure from my cup of tea extra (plus make the tea style higher as mentioned final time) and
  • create a quiet second in my sometimes busy days.

The calm comes from focusing my thoughts on making use of pigment and water to my web page and on the identical time there’s a celebration of color, sample and sudden watercolour magic. So the 2 – calm and celebration – coexist on the identical time.
