Hello friends! And for those who are enjoying the Collections Blog Tour, from Elegant Musings, also welcome!
I think there is something wonderful about having something from another time. No one else can be there again, but yet, YOU have a piece of it! Quite lovely, I'd say.
I have tea cups from another era, but I also have been fortunate enough to find some beautiful new tea cups and tea pots that I hope will become vintage favourites eventually! I collect tea cups and pots, well..because I love tea! I also collect tea, and drink it too of course!
Would you take a browse a bit of my collection with me?
This very unique cup is from Ten Thousand Villages. A fairtrade store that purchases crafts from all around the world, and sells them in North America! Check it out. Isn't that leaf imprint wonderful?
These sunny yellow beauties were brought back from my sister from the East Coast. They're made to look like crushed paper cups. How neat!
The same sister also bought me this set for Christmas. Apparently I am predictable to buy for. This ethic elephant set is not from somewhere ethnic..but pretty just the same! I love the blue-grey shade.
A classic, toffee brown tea pot. But my youngest sister crocheted me a tea-cozy to keep my tea warm! She even added a cute yellow button.
Ah, yellow again. It's actually not my favourite colour, but I think it might become mine! These mustard-hued cups and saucers are just from Ikea, but picked out by my boyfriend. Nicely done.
This one's my favourite! It's from my grandma, and simply beautiful!
Oh, I could show you many more, but I decided to just display a few of my favourites. Are you an avid tea nerd too? What do you sip from?
