Legacy cups

I am finding that many of my friends have teacup collections that were handed down to them from grandmothers and mothers.  The more I work on this project, the more I hear stories about teacup collections and the fond memories that they bring forward.  This cup was in my friend Jill's collection.  It was fun going to her house and seeing all the gorgeous cups she has and photographing a few for paintings.


  1. Love this idea and the notion that each cup has a story. Are you going to title each piece?

  2. Thanks for your comment and your question! And yes, I decided just yesterday that I am going to name the cup paintings after the wonderful women that I have known from the "teacup generation" such as my Aunt Evelyn who just passed. I have cups from my mom and my grandmother and have started asking for pictures of legacy cups from relatives. It is a sentimental journey.
