Tea With Mrs. Fox has tagged me to show my tea cups. I posted this quite awhile back before I met her, so she didn't get to see them. I am re-posting them in honor of her request. They are mostly what I'd call coffee cups not tea-cups, so I'm bending the rules a little bit. Here they are, and like I said, "I must have variety."I'd like to show you what I drink out of every day. I like variety! Either that or I'm crazy. Here is my coffee cup collection. Sometimes I use a different cup for morning and afternoon. Am I nuts This one is fun for playing cards with my kids. I have four of them.
This owl is one of my favorites, because I like the lightness of the cup; the way it feels in my hand. I drink out of him in the afternoon. He was made in Japan, as most of mine are.
Of course I love all my florals. Most of my cups are from the 1970's also.
I found these at St. Vincent De Paul for .49 cents. I use the red check one for camping and for picnics in the backyard.
The one with pears is the first one I began collecting. I got the idea from my sister Sharon. Sharon always had these cute coffee cups. Many of them were pedestal cups. She told me she paid less than a dollar for them at thrift shops.
I got so intrigued by the idea that I could have variety for so cheap, and be so thrilled with my purchases. When looking for a cup I like to find a certain shape, and the pattern must go all the way around. It has to feel light and nice in my hand.
These are bone china. They are very light weight. I love the cool patterns from the 1970's.
Sometimes the crazier; the better. I couldn't resist these colorful ones.
I love these great shapes and colors. Everyone of my cups was purchased for less than a dollar, and each one is special to me. I really do use them and enjoy them. Thank you for letting me share my collection with you today. Thank you Mrs. Fox for tagging me. Please go over and see her favorite tea cups. Please ladies do not feel like you have to show as many as I have shown. "My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." Psalm 23:5
