I found this lovely teacup at the thrift store with the matching saucer....$.99 for both. Tried my hand at making a gnome with them. I don't love the back so if I make another I'll figure something else out. Going to gift this to my mom I think...she won't care about the backside. :)
EDITED to add.....I gave him hair around the back of the cup and added another pink flower to the hat. Much better.
