Tea for one

I've been searching vintage tea cups on Etsy (surprise!) as I drink tea almost every day but have been using a giant coffee mug to drink out of. These are so pretty:

From the Nostalgia Shop, vintage. Also in pink, sold as a set.

From forestofice, vintage

From Leaf Design, vintage

Then I stumbled across Louche Lab, from Brooklyn. I must be psychic because a lot of things I am drawn to are made locally! Here are some of her pieces:

Seahorse and octopus tea cup set with saucers. P-p-p-precious!

Japanese style tea cups

Tapas plates with sea life

I love how simple they are and they look like watercolor paintings - my favorite medium for its versatility and transparency.
