A Cup And A Saucer

Well I had to rack my brain to think of something different for Green Day over at Fiona's Raindrops and Daisys today. 
And this is what I eventually came up with.

This was my mum-in-law's tea set, well everything but the tea pot. 
I think it is so lovely and delicate looking. 
I'm pretty sure that it was her wedding china too. So I feel quite honoured to have it. I keep it safely tucked away in a glass cabinet just so that is doesn't get broken. 
But I was feeling quite brave and decided to get some of it down to photograph it. 
If you knew how clumsy I can be you would totally understand how nervous I was doing this, lol.  I think I am the worst in our house for breaking glasses, etc., I have no idea why that would be. 
Some people (namely Danny and the girls) think I am a tad clumsy but personally I think I am just unlucky!!!
Anyway you will be pleased to hear that no dishes or cups were hurt or damaged in this photoshoot :))

I love the handles on these cups and it gave me the perfect opportunity to play about taking some pictures. 

I love circles and arcs - I much prefer  rounded shapes to sharp straight lines. 

I often wonder if I would have been related to the Hobbits in Lord of  The Rings, now don't laugh. 
I DON'T have large hairy feet - honest I don't!!!
I just loved their houses with the round windows and doors. 
How cool would that be to live in a house like that!! 

On that daft note I am going to say:
I'm sharing this post today with 
you should go over and have a look at all of the lovely greenery over there. :)

Happy Friday everyone!!!

Oh I love those cups and your photos are awesome.
I also liked those little houses the hobbits lived in and I being under 5ft. tall would fit perfectly in them. B
