What can I say, its the fuel that keeps me going, even though nowdays I drink Decaf as normally tea affects my head too much resulting in splitting headaches, I know guys that’s not proper tea, its hot and wet and makes me happy so there! I seem to doodle teacups, other people doodle stars or wiggles mine are often teacups. This *tea cup Illustration is taken from an Anthropologie Mug (Ayaka Mug)I have and its one of my favorite possessions. Alas I am back to the 9-5 job tomorrow (7.30-3 I should say) it will be lacking in tea, but I will be getting back to my routine for a while, even though I lost weight over Christmas I am feeling podgy.

So to people who have gone back to work, working hard or who haven’t had a break over Christmas I hope you have the time for a good cuppa.

    Beautiful illustration and the cup is great! ♥
    I'm feeling a bit podgy too since Christmas because I've eaten so much, but I just have to accept that I have eaten a lot and to work it off now. 🙂

    That picture is just absolutely stunning Ella! Tea is my ultimate favourite, can't go a day without at least 2 or more cups! x

    So pretty Ella. I would totes buy an illustrated teacup from you, fyi. Alas, Anthropologie can fill that gap for now. Best of luck on your return to work sweetheart! xx

    I really like the illustration 🙂 A tribute to tea is always a good idea. I usually drink it before I sleep or in the daytime, if I don't have coffee, I go for black or green tea – they do wonders for my metabolism!

    I have to have my morning coffee but then for the rest of the day I'm a tea person 🙂 love just having a cup as I work/study. This illustration is so beautiful, amazing work 🙂

    Lovely illustration!

    I'm quite lucky, while I work in a restaurant, we're free to drink tea as much as we like (provided we bring our own tea bags). I do love a good cuppa (or two… or twenty)

    Hope you have a nice day back at work.
