Time for Tea

The break in postings over the last few weeks was unexpected. By accident, I left my camera and memory card full of pictures a few weeks with my mom, and wasn't able to retrieve them until this past weekend.
This teacup was part of a larger vignette for a doll my mom was working on. The cup and teaspoon are only Chrysnbon, but Mom added the resin tea and I added pink flowers to the cup and saucer. I made the tea bag from tissue paper.


  1. I LOVE the tea bag!!!

    Being plastic is not as great a fault in my way of thinking as being out of scale. I like Chrysnbon!!! They STILL make the best scale bathroom fixtures available.

  2. Wonderful tea bag. The cup and saucer are cute.

  3. Thanks for all the comments!

    Catherine, I agree that out of scale is far worse than being plastic. I just hate how recognizable Chrysonbon pieces are! I always think " that's Chrysonbon!" when I see a plate or teacup with this particular shape, and it sort of breaks the illusion of the miniature scene for me.

  4. The addition of the flowers, tea bag, etc prove that it's the details that make the miniature special. Just lovely.

  5. The tea bag is so cute. And I like the cup with tea.
