In A World Where Teatime Rules The Afternoon


In a world where teatime rules the afternoon...that's our world, for sure. Uh huh. An afternoon without teatime is rare in our little cozy home. In fact, you can find the hubby and I sipping on a cup of PG Tips (almost) every morning before starting our day. There's something incredibly soothing about holding that perfect cuppa in hand...closing your eyes....taking in the moment where you feel not a care in the world could bring your down. Ahhhhh....yes, that is...teatime!

So, to celebrate the fact we love tea that much, I'm dedicating an hour or two every day to doodle out YOUR favorite tea cup/mug...(or coffee, if you prefer!). The illustration above is the first checked off my life and I'm absolutely in love with the results. If you'd like to see the actual photo sent to me, you can check it out over on my Facebook page. If you'd like to see your favorite cup/mug doodled by muwah, simply email me (or Facebook message me) the photo. Until then, enjoy this darling illustration. xx

  14. Nice drawing. Both the style and the idea of drawing peoples teacups reminds me of Tracey Fletcher King's Cuppa with Friends... I did a double take!

    1. Ha! Thank you very much! And yes, probably inspired by my "big sis". It's a perfect way to work on my own technique and improve things needing it here and there. Thanks for popping in! xx
