There’s a little bit of magic that happens everytime I make a new vintage teacup candle. That is after a lot of decision making….
What size should I make the wick?
Can I part with this cup?
The last question is case in point with this particular cup. I got 6 of these beautiful cups from Potterspury, last Summer. As soon as I saw them I had to have them and at that very moment, I knew it would be difficult to part with them.
I somehow managed not to use them in my wedding…. Trickery, yes. I enjoyed having my morning cups of tea in them. At weekends , if friends visited, I made a point of using these cups, just because. But then , as winter came and we began to experiment with new fragrances – I knew this cup was destined to be tea coloured and fragranced in warm sugar vanilla. We’ll at least 5 of them!
The last one sold to a lovely lady on eBay for Christmas. She wrote to say how beautiful the cup was and that it smelled divine. So I think overall, I did the right thing by sharing a vintage flicker …. Before and after.
