Help! There’s a storm in my tea cup, and you’re invited.
p.s. This is really, really expensive, so if anyone wants to make an affordable version, I’ll supply the pipe cleaners.
That’s seriously the best thing ever.
Although I wish there was a little video of it in action. But that would probably make me want it more, so I guess it’s for the best!
ha — exactly!
beautiful idea, but i can’t believe how expensive it is!
i know ditto would love a video! this is so fun!

I love hand crank pieces! I came across this piece on etsy the other day, it’s not in a tea cup but same concept… and affordable! Maybe you can see if they can make a tea cup version?
