Tag Archives: Lady Gaga
The ol’ 25th birthday is creeping up on me (tomorrow!), and I’m getting nostalgic. Birthdays used to be all about ripping open boxes with Barbies inside, now they’re all about ripping open bottles of champagne (not that I’m complaining).
My brain might not be able to handle these two worlds colliding tonight… Gaga on Gossip Girl? Sensory overload.
I imagine they’d have a lot to talk about, like tea cups, taking over the world, trends in hair accessories… Speaking of trends in hair accessories, check out this collection of headbands that’s been worn by Blair’s minions on the show from Pas Comme Les Moutons, swoon:
It’s amazing how I find some crazy people aggravating, and other crazy people I find completely infatuating. Lady Gaga belongs to the latter group; she is a total crazypants and I love it! I have been reading that she travels with a special vintage purple tea set everywhere she goes, and throws diva fits when it’s misplaced.
I don’t blame her frankly, it’s a precious tea set and eco-friendly to carry your own beverage container! Scanning some sites for a similar teacup for myself (perhaps to keep on my desk at work for a bit of chai, or a well-timed diva fit of my own) it seems that tea cups have been taking on a life of their own lately and are being re-purposed for some other creative recylcing projects.
Lindsay Pemberton, a New Zealand ‘upcycler’ makes these funky bangle bracelets by using a diamond saw to cut vintage teacups into wearable art:
The greeneyedgirlshop on Etsy has filled vintage tea cups with environmentally-friendly soy wax and clean-burning wicks to make these whimsical candles:
And how can a cup of tea get a bit more proper? With the help of Martha Stewart, of course. Without any alteration to a vintage tea cup collection, they’ve become jewelry dividers in a shallow drawers:
I haven’t found a perfect Lady Gaga tea cup yet, but I will be keeping my eyes peeled for them at flea markets this summer!
