But you will be ready to say, what was your hope in doing this? — What did you look forward to? —To any thing, every thing — to time, chance, circumstances, slow effects, sudden bursts, perseverance and weariness ... Every possibility of good was before me, and the first of blessings secured ... {from Emma, by Jane Austen, 1775-1817}

Exquisite






I found these here, via Twitter and @nyplmenus {have you seen this New York Public Library project yet?! ... you should, you really should}, and just wanted to share them with you.  The teacups are crafted from recycled book pages by Swedish artist Cecilia Levy.
