On The Easel - "Miss Etiquette", New Teacup Painting

"A Proper Tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, which is one you forget about afterwards."     ~A.A. Milne

Tea Etiquette Tips.....
    -It is considered rude to stir one's tea in wide circular motions. Proper etiquette requires the teaspoon to be held at the six o'clock position to begin. Then, any added liquid is folded lightly towards the twelve o'clock position two or three times.

Artfully Yours,
Laura Leeder
