The end of last month I was in nearby Rochester, MI on business, and afterwards I stopped in at one of my favorite shops, Plain and Fancy.
After I got the jacket home I decided it would be fun to embellish it with a lace teacup and teapot applique set from a vendor [Zoey Story] on Etsy. I didn't realize until after I placed my order that the vendor was in China, but to my delight the appliques arrived very quickly.
I machine sewed them on right away, and wore the jacket to the riverboat dinner cruise that I've already blogged about. The appliques are perfect for a tea lover, and I like their addition to my jacket.
