Tea cup Tuesday and a glitzy skull

Look at these boxes, I saw these in a shop some years ago and I had to have a look inside and this is what I found!

These are my wonderful teacups for this Tuesday (and not a spot of china in sight!) and I adore them so much so I have never used them. I must of had these a few years now and for an amazing price too! they just look so 50s (to me any way) the colours and the box they came in. They're just made to look that way as they were new in a shop and the same wonderful delight was found in the next box!

I was going to a wedding and I bought them for the gift however, getting them home I loved them so much I bought a set for my self too! again unbelievable value (I do use these all the time) I also have one of those original tan baking bowls. I just love them, aren't they great colours? and the boxes too are just wonderful so this was my little share with you this week I do hope you like them. Don't forget to pop over to Terry's & Marther's for tea cup tuesday This has become one of my pleasures of the week, going to see lots of wonderful tea cups and so many too! I didn't realise how popular this little habit of mine was lol it seem's I am not the only one. 

On to my crafty treat for the day now.

Over at A Skull a Day There is a skull a day shown (not my usual cup of tea ha ha) However, not horrid at all. I found a freebie on there, how to make this skull. So I thought I would share one I made with you. Skulls don't have to be a gruesome thing do they? No as you can see here I have made a very pretty skull. I coloured the card stock with copics then added lots of pearls and gems and I also added a tongue ha ha. Pop by and collect this template it's will come in handy come October I am sure. You could enlarge it and make some giant ones to hang out side, or keep them small and make a garland of skulls, I enjoyed making mine .Hope you liked my little shares of tea & skulls (very extreme lol) Love Dawn xx

Hi Dawn

I'm getting a very strong idea that you have a fettish for crockery, could I be right ?

Awesome masks.

Oh Dawn, I love your cups and love your bowls, and will definitely look up how to make those skulls! Yours came out great!.. But I was all choked up as soon as I read about your Dita! She was a beautiful dog, and I'm so sorry to hear the news. She was obviously a great blessing to you, and I'm sure she had a very happy life. What more could anyone ask... Loved the beautiful scrapbook page you showed of her! Hope you're holding up ok since then.. I just became a follower! Does that cheer you up at least a LITTLE?!! ((hugs)) ~tina

I am glad you opened up those boxes. Great find! Hope you use the teacups for a summer tea. Fab colours.

Terri said...

Your cup set is very vintage looking, and those boxes too. Wouldn't it be fun though, to use them ??? You could set a vintage table with them!
Thank you so much for showing them to us.

You get the prize for the most unusual tea cup post. Skulls and tea cups. What a combination. But I sure love those cups and bowls. The colors and style are so mid-century. Really, really love them. You sure know how to pick them.

Love the mixing bowls too. Such gorgeous colours. I bought a lovely 1950's green jug the other week (for only £6) and it such a beautiful pastel green .... so 50's.... if only my camera would work again.....any time soon
