tea by lilymaid7 tea by lilymaid7
I felt like putting something in here, and this is my favourite teacup, other than the one I broke, anyway. :) I do, actually, tend to keep it on my desk.

Oh I was going to ask if that symbol meant anything, but I see it's a celtic knot, not that I know what they stand for :lol: But it's a pretty mug and I bet the tea tastes really good from it :giggle: I'm a coffee drinker :nod:

I used to get cranky when I didn't get my coffee, so I switched to tea. :)

I've heard people say all sorts of weird things about what Celtic knots mean, but the "northern migratory peoples," as my art history teacher put it, used this sort of art to ornament everything from metalwork to wooden ships. Later they used the same style of art to decorate their manuscripts, like the Book of Kells, and the Book of Durrow.

I doubt I'd feel any less crankier if I switched to tea. I often wonder, does anyone feel refreshed when they get up from sleeping? I feel so groggy and I'm always tired.

The celtic knots do make pretty designs as for their meanings who knows :D

'Tis a pretty one, happily sitting there doing what it was created to do.

Thank you. :)

My other favourite was one my love's mum made, but I'm afraid I was a bit clumsy when washing it and I killed the poor little thing. I'd like to learn to make my own some day, but there are ever so many things I'd like to learn. I should probably get good at the things I already know first. :)

Within reason, of course. If you are as much of a perfectionist as I suspect, if you wait until you're "good enough" at the things you do now before trying to learn something new, you'll never never again try anything new. <grin>

I have found I'm prone to doing that, occasionally. :) On the other hand, I tend to do too many things at once, too.

Thank you. It is quite a wonderful tea cup. :)

(I happen to like men in kilts, myself. Especially bagpipers, actually. I'd always hoped to marry a bagpiper. I guess I'll just have to put my love in a kilt. :) )
