Curiosity 4: Hand Painted Tea Cups

I recently found some neat looking white tea cups at Goodwill. I like to go to thrift stores and look for interesting things. I also look for specific things when I  got to thrift stores. I think it helps to have an idea of items you like/want when you go to thrift stores. You may not always find what you are looking for, but it gives you an idea of where to start in the store. I look for tea cups, copper jello molds, dresses, natural fiber sweaters, and anything else that catches my eye! Anyways back to the teacups. They are plain white, but with a raised design. I really only wanted one but they came packaged together as a 4 pack and were only $3. Once I got them home I decided that instead of having 4 white teacups I would paint them and have 4 different teacups. I am only half way through the painting because I had to get glass paint (from the craft store) and experiment with one before I spent any more money on other colors. Here are the results so far:

The top left one is still all white. The top right one is about a third of the way done, I want to get some purple or blue paint before I finish it. The bottom two are completely done. Maybe when they are all done I will have to have a tea party outside in the yard, the tea cups seemed to enjoy their photo shoot!
