Welcome to Teacup Gardens

handmade custom teacup wreathWhen I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left,
And could say…
I used everything you gave me.

 Teacup Gardens is the result of a dream that never faded, and is truly the delight of my heart…..

I have been designing for over twenty years now, and firmly believe that it has been my love of older, gentler times that has influenced my work the most, none would be more evident than the beauty and romance  of the Victorian era. Long  before I even knew how to design, and without a notion of what I would do with these precious treasures, I was a young girl collecting wonderful vintage laces, fabrics, buttons and jewelry. But  my greatest love however was always old china, especially from the 1800′s and early 1900′s. Each piece allows me to dream, design and bring to life all that my little romantic heart can imagine.

Every wreath and work is unique and also one of a kind. Sadly, I am rarely able to duplicate any of them, simply because of the rarity of the china and other pieces that I have collected over the years, so please keep this in mind as you ponder any particular piece.  They have and will always be created with my personal passion for Victorian romance and femininity.

So may I invite you to rest a while, pour yourself a cup of tea, and take a relaxing stroll through our pages. You may just  find something that will make your heart smile, or perhaps someone you love.
