So let me introduce you to my new favourite teacup. Er…yes that’s right, much to my mother’s amusement I am now amassing a small collection of tea cups that I take turns drinking tea from (I need to hold a tea party!) This new addition to the family goes by the name of Birdie and designed by awesome ceramicist, Camila Prada.

Yummy Green tea, a Gingerbread man decoration made by my friend and my favourite iPhone case. Yup, naturally my phone case features Hello Kitty and friends dressed up as Aliens. How could I resist?
Camila is based in Stoke on Trent, north of the West Midlands which is a city well known as ‘The Potteries’ reflecting their incredibly rich Ceramic history (Wedgewood and Doulton are all based here.) It’s so great to see great ceramic ware still being created in the region and Camila’s tableware are full of fun and personality which is evident from their individual names like Koko, Lil Bubba and Big Poppa. You guys know by now that I have a love for the kawaii and I am inexplicably drawn to inanimate objects with faces (who’s with me?) so I was over the moon when she sent me Birdie the teacup. Camila’s ceramics are definitely, excuse the pun, my cup of tea.
