Giveaway with Zinnia Pea!

Entries now CLOSED. Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to the winners! jx

With Christabel’s love of literature and tea, Zinnia Pea showcases what happens when interests collide in a beautifully quirky way. By refashioning old white china into practical works of art, Zinnia Pea shows us yet another way to keep sustainability creative and fun…

On the cup: “This is a Tale about a tailβ€”a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel, and his name was Nutkin.” And on the saucer:Β  “He had a brother called Twinkleberry, and a great many cousins: they lived in a wood at the edge of a lake.” Both from Beatrix Potter

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.

The lovely Christabel has given us these two gorgeous pieces to give away to a couple of our lucky readers.Β  Just leave a comment here telling us which one you’d like to have as your own – and voila! There’s an entry.

Good luck!

Jen x

  30. I was browsing Alice in Wonderland cups and pots in her store just yesterday! I love how the text seems to match the shape of the upcycled china.
    They’re both gorgeous pieces, but as someone who has been flood evacuated from my workplace, and am camped out in a temporary office using someone else’s mug, I’d absolutely adore that Beatrix Potter teacup. Good tea needs a good cup, agreed?

  31. The adorable cup and saucer would be the perfect fit for the tea parties my daughter and I share! Every grown up should have a story cup!
