Blue Monday: Tea Cups, and Blue Eyes


 It's blue Monday again over at Smilin' Sally's.
Above is a little collection of blue tea cups,
and sweet blue tea cozies, handmade by one of my vendors.
 close up of cup. Anyone know what they are called?
 Here is a drawing by Charlotte Becker.
I looked all over the internet to find this particular pic,
but could never find it. Anyone know the name?? Value??
Seems like most of her work sold for a lot.
This is a print with very muted colors.
 Here is a close up of her beautifulface.
And look at those blue eyes!!!!! Such sweetness.

This picture of her face shoes much more color than the drawing does.
The top photo is more like the actual colors.

That's it for my blues today.
Hope you will join our wonderful hostess Sally for more blues.

I love this post - and now I want to go embroider a tea cozy! I'm not sure what that china pattern is.

How pretty love that print. I am a big fan and collector or Bessie Pease Gutman artwork. Kind of reminds me of her. Have a great week!

I do not know the cup pattern, but I noticed the embroidery behind. I love all hand made linens. Crochet, embroidery, you name it. I have a lot but still want all I see. That is such a sweet little face in the picture.
