What I really need right now is a cup of hot TheraFlu. But, since I'm not supposed to take that in my condition, the next best thing would just be some nice peppermint or chamomile tea. I searched and searched on Etsy for a teacup worthy of this task, and I couldn't believe how hard it was to find a cute teacup. Not a large, handmade pottery mug, and not an old teacup made into a candle (there's lots of those), but a cute, whimsical, "today"-sort of teacup. I finally found the teacup above. It's full message says this: "Laugh More, Gripe Less, Ignore Critics, Say Yes, Order Dessert, Love Life". So while it's soothing your monstrous cold, it's also giving you a pep talk! What more could you ask for in a teacup? Not to mention the fact that seeing white polka dots on a red background has got to cheer you up a little.
Artist thepaintinglibra also makes this super-chic latte mug:
Ah, now if only this one came as a teacup and saucer. Perfection! (Unless of course you drink lattes regularly, in which case, this is perfect...but I don't...and this is about me, right?) Sorry. I get a little cranky when I'm sick.
