Just put on a happy face...






I recently found this little tea cup. I loved how it had a little pocket for your tea bag. It has proven to keep my cup without any tea bits in it and i can leave it in there and just pour more hot water thru it to get two cups out of 1 tea bag. I'm so thrifty. I collect white dishes and have quite a few pieces that i have collected from the thrift store over the years. I dream of displaying them on open shelves someday. But this one needed more personality.
I used this deco art glass paint marker that i got from JoAnn's craft store and it worked like a dream. After drawing my happy face. I followed the directions on my pen which said to let it air dry for 8 hours and then place in a 250 degree oven for an hour. It's supposed to be dish washer safe after it's cooled but I wouldn't take the chance with this little guy. I like hand washing my special items and this cup truly makes me smile.
