sip sip, tweet tweet

i’m packing for chicago this morning and drinking my tea from a brand new cup. i tend to buy cups one at a time and end up with an assortment of random patterns and sizes. i found this new cup at tarzian west in brooklyn when i ran over to find some pot hooks. the plate versions of this style caught my eye and i thought, “charley harper has his work on tableware?”. so i popped inside to check it out and it looks like it’s just a charley harper-esque pattern official charley harper edition by a company called tag. it was only $7 with the saucer so i scooped it up as research. when i got home i looked online and couldn’t find any harper work printed on tableware so i’m assuming this is not the real thing. it looks like you can find some harper prints on mugs right here though. so until i can find the real thing i’ll be sipping from my little bird cup this morning, trying not to get too nervous about the meetup tomorrow

[ps: the utensil pot behind the cup is by karin eriksson. you can view her “in the kitchen with” recipe right here]
