    I didn't understand my love for teacups until I saw a watercolor teacup in Susan Branch's memoir, "A Fine Romance," which was a moody black teacup. Now it's becoming apparent that I may be slightly obsessed with them. I've been doodling them, googling them, and even attempted an embroidery piece with a made-up teacup that sorta bombed. When I saw this book I had a hunch it was going to make me cry with happiness, and I was right.

When I saw this book I had a hunch it was going to make me cry with happiness, and I was right. Oddly enough, what I love most are the irregularities and imperfections of each watercolor teacup. My favorites are the ones with creepy crawlies and the German teacup with a human head on its handle.

It's simply tannin-tastic.

    Really interesting history of porcelain that I had no clue about and Molly Hatch's illustrations were great. Really interesting history of porcelain that I had no clue about and Molly Hatch's illustrations were great.
