A Spot of Tea

I originally took these pictures with the intent to join in on Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. This week's challenge - take a picture of your tea or coffee cup and add on some of her lovely textures.

Well, these don't have any textures and since it's Thursday, I am certainly late for anything with a "Tuesday" in it!

Turquoise Pair
A pair of Japanese teacups, a wedding gift. The set includes a "Groom's Cup" and a "Bride's Cup". The Bride's Cup above, is smaller with a pink stem.

Delicate Design
The Groom's Cup - you guessed it, blue stem.

The pictures just didn't look "right" with the textures on them (as beautiful as Kim's textures are). So they are simply unadorned today.

And after I came up with today's blog post title, I decided to look up the origin of the saying, "Spot of Tea", because I was curious and blogging is meant to be educational (right?). I guess the word "spot" refers to a small amount. So we're talking about a small amount of tea. Which is fitting for these pictures, since they contained zero tea.

Heck, even though I'm two days late a several textures short, I'm sill going to link up to Kim's Challenge. I feel like a rebel. (I just hope I don't get banned!)

These are beautiful... and sometimes it's just best to leave things along in their own beauty!

This is just beautiful. Love all the detail as well.
