Thrift Store Tea Cups

I bought a couple tea cups from my local thrift store the other day  for .50 each.  They're so sweet and delicate,  I just knew I could make something fun out of them.

I spray painted them white, tucked in bottle brush trees and cut out vintage images from  Lisa's Altered Art.  I used the Black Ice Brooch for the "Fancy Pants" tea cup and the Delicate and Delightful Chain for the "Think Happy Thoughts" tea cup.  I finished them up by tying ribbon around the handle. 
I thought they turned out quite sweet. :)

 Check out more beautiful brooches from Melissa Frances.
