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: 


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.  :)

Death and Finals

The Feather and the Rose will come back from the dead after we finish the test-taking, paper-writing extravaganza that is the end of the semester.  For those of you whose lives have not been suspended in a sleepless whirlwind of studying, we hope you are enjoying the holiday season!
