A ladybug's tea! This just inspires images of daintiness, as you have so wonderfully illustrated!
Your favorite color? I'm going to think "pink!" :o)

What a pretty painting. I love pink too but I rarely use it to paint with...don't know why. Love the ladybug.

Love your lady bug tea. English tea hey? Just normal tea for me living in the UK then. Lol. Although I don't own such a pretty tea set. I'd like to though.

Now you're favourite colour....mmmm....real hard but I pretty sure it must be black. No? Oh, I shall have to think a bit harder ;-)....A wild guess then: pink! Probably a long shot but that's my guess ;-)

EVA said...

Pink would be my guess!

I love how you wrote color! (except you missed the u! lol) I wish we'd thought of that!

Another beautiful painting with adorable details, Heather!

SaraLynn said...

This is so beautiful. It reminds me of all of my grandmother's old teacups...

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Your work is always so charming- I love how you really caught the delicacy of fine china and the sweetness of a quiet cuppa- whether it be tea or in my case coffee! Lovely work as always!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

On a hot summer's day when you're feeling a bit peckish and in need of a sit down, there's not much beats a proper cream tea (cornish clotted cream naturally, strawberry jam and homemade scones with the tea blend of your choice - I'm rather fond of Earl Grey when it's hot).

Delightful piece that made me rather hungry...

Pointy Pix said...

I think it might be pink!! Your work is just so delicate and whimsical!

ger chouinard said...

PINK! Heather it's Pink! Right? It IS Pink Heather ...isn't it? Totally guessing. Love your ladybugs, always so perfect and just in the right place at the right time. Hope you enjoyed your tea ... how could you not? Happy PPF and thank you, as always, for the inspiration.

Michaele Razi said...

So sweet and lovely! I love the feel of this, or rather, the peaceful, wonderful feeling I get from it!

Gerri Herbst said...
