Hello! Welcome to my journal of life's small pleasures. Join me as I explore paper crafts, vintage finds, local sights and more as a way of celebrating life's gifts.
You may be wondering about the 'incident' referred to in my blog name. It is a story of a broken teacup that was the catalyst for starting this blog.
Before my wedding my mother gave me a box of teacups that she'd received as a young bride. My lifestyle is fairly casual so the teacups have remained carefully packed away for years. They just seemed too precious to use for pudding or paperclips :)
Once in a while I open the box to admire their pretty patterns. This year when I lifted a cup from its tissue nest it broke in two. Despite its coddled and protected storage it had become undone by time. I thought "wouldn't this cup have preferred being used, loved and possibly chipped by admirers before it broke down?" I didn't want to be like that teacup, breaking down before sharing myself with you and the creative community I've enjoyed so much on the web. Thank you for joining me today- I'm wishing you a teacup full of happiness!
