Tea for two

Whats classier than a set of teacup and saucer? Few things I should think :) But seriously teacups are everywhere and not just since a certain pop artist started dressing up and parading around with one but, well, since we were kids...does anyone remember riding in their 1st teacup and saucer?

I went antiquing recently and decided I would follow in my mothers foot steps and purchased my 1st teacup and saucer(It felt good). My mother has been collecting for some time now and has a really great collection.

She displays them on a rack and while I am far from a "collection" I was researching a way to display my cup and saucers.
I wouldn't have enough space for this but its amazing (maybe with minis?)

I love decoration with pieces from everyday life, love this idea.

I shouldn't however sell myself short because in all actuality I have a mini teacup and saucer ( I received as a parting gift from a dear friends baby shower) that my oldest son actually uses when we have tea.

I enjoy out of the norm teacups very much and hope to flush out my collections with some pieces like this:

 My mother had a brilliant idea and used teacups and saucers as "Thinking Of You" giveaways, she would hand them out with her very own home-made tea mix and a cute little "Think Of You" card attached. I found some other D.I.Y ideas incorporating teacup and saucers.

And of course for the common man a chandelier :)

Ever since the new Alice in Wonderland, Tea time themed accessories have became very popular and as a big Tim Burton fan I would say I rather enjoy some of the more creative pieces.



My personal favorite teacup and saucer search landed me these cool pictures.

So whether its a new collection, displaying a growing collection or accessorizing/wearing your collections think out of the box :)
