Shattered Christmas Cup.


Talk about broken dreams. Yesterday, I dropped my favorite Christmas tea cup. It came from my Auntie's estate. I remember the day I brought it home, feeling so proud to have something of hers.
As I took it down off the shelf, it fell and shattered into many pieces.


I was totally devastated.
I always had it displayed on a wall shelf in the tea parlor.



It is made of fine china and it does not glue well. I did everything I could to save it.
Here is my end product. It looks so sad. I can not drink from it anymore. It is just a decoration and fond  memories.


Happy Holidays to my dear tea loving friends,
Lady Estelle

Valentine's Day Tea at the Studio!

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It was one of the most celebrated  in the Victorian era outside of Christmas...
