Peek-a-boo cups from Crumpet & Skirt

I spotted these charming tea cups at the recent 15-Minute-Factory craft fair in Brick Lane, where they were being sold by the equally delightful Elizabeth of Crumpet & Skirt, a new gift and homeware line for the discerning pin-up devotee.

Seen from the outside, the mugs are virginal white bone china, but tip them up for a slurp of tea and each piece tells a different story. I like the subtlety of the design, and the way that Elizabeth has resisted the urge to go for a more in-your-face showgirl design with these cups, which I'd have no problem leaving out when granny comes to tea.
