I really enjoy teacups, especially the old-fashioned kind. Mugs are handy, and are great for coffee and hot chocolate, but for hot tea nothing compares to a delicate teacup with a dainty floral design. I have quite a few, and some of them are displayed on this shelf:
On the top shelf are two crystal vases along with two teacups and a pretty saucer. These are all thrift store finds 🙂
The middle shelf has a miniature tea set, along with another miniature teacup which is a thrift store find from my teenage years, at a Value Village in Tacoma, Washington. The teacup on the left is one I bought from a coworker, and the one on the right is another thrift store find, from a Catholic thrift store in South Sacramento.
The teacup on the left on the bottom shelf is from when we lived in West Germany when I was a little girl. It’s a July teacup, with the official birthday flower of the month and the word “July” painted inside. My father found this at a dump of all places! The teacup in the middle is one that I bought at an antique store. The teacup on the right is another thrift store find, and the flowers between the teacups are also thrift store finds, from different thrift stores at different times.
