Lime violet tea cup

Lime Violet Tea Cup

A favourite tea cup and saucer. The saucer is still in one piece, the cup not so lucky, although I’ve kept the pieces along with a lot of other pieces from over the years. I may one day learn to make mosaic art.


Available printed on these and other things… (links to shop are in the captions)

  1. Pansies! Grew up surrounded by them. They’re sprouting outside even as I type.
    But what do you mean by edible flowers? Do you make tea out of them?

    1. Hi there! I haven’t made tea with violets myself (are pansies and violets the same..?) but we eat the flowers fresh picked. I tried putting them into cake mixture once but they disappeared a bit when the cake was cooked. I think they’re better as a garnish, or in a salad, very pretty! I’ve heard the leaves are edible too but I haven’t tried that yet 😊

      1. actually they are quite close to each other but there does seem to be some difference between the two. However, I am going to find out if I can make tea with them.
