Teacups of Joy

We're back!!!  We survived the papers and the finals and the journey home. 

If we're being honest, the fact of our survival was largely due to these: 

 
 
TEACUPS. 
 
 


From the ever-wondrous Anthropologie.  You can't tell in these pictures, but they're oversized (similar volume to a mug).

 
 
The blue one is Tyler-Rose's.  Isn't it gorgeous?  Especially with the berry tea? 


They have LEGS!  Which, as Tyler-Rose had to point out to me, is practical because you don't have to worry about using a coaster.  But it is also just fun.  When you hold it in your hand, it feels like a little creature is perching on you. 
 

 
Added bonus:  it can proofread your term papers!  ...okay, maybe only your Jane Austen term paper. 
 
 

 I was so excited that I put a fruit smoothie in mine at one point. 
 
 
So we survived, but only through frequent indulgence of our Anglophile tendencies.  But since there's nothing wrong with that, I think we'll carry on in this manner...

Though I would like to add:  we have it confirmed by an actual English person that these are, in fact, very cool teacups.  The lovely Miss Cole saw mine on Twitter and straightaway got one for herself.  :)

  3. Ooo... nice tea cups. And I like that they are mug-capacity tea cups. I'm not sure a regular-sized tea cup can handle the quantities of tea I consume. :) Thanks for the heads-up. A bit late for Christmas, but I have a birthday in a few months... ;)

  5. I love these teacups. I have big ones, too. I'd like one with legs.
