Lines & Shapes

This was delivered just in time for a morning tea break. It contains some beautiful images and is visually very calming (not taxing or challenging). Just what I needed to accompany a warming cup of Bengal Spice this morning.

I wonder how many photos of cups of tea there are out there on the web?
Umpteen-thousands I’m sure, and I have no doubt that the web doesn’t need another… but I love this particular ‘bat-winged’ cup so here’s another anyway. The cup is by Finnish designer Sami Rinne and was found at one of my favourite shops in Amsterdam, Kauppa. Kauppa specialises in design from Finland and is full of beautiful, covetable things.

It’s safest to leave your wallet at home when visiting Kauppa (it will still be an entirely gratifying experience).
