Tea Cups & things

When I posted pictures of my serving cart, I mentioned that it's usually covered in teacups and the like, and a few of you expressed interest in seeing my teacup collection...so here it is! I don't really have all that many so I've included some that belong to my mum, as well.

You may think I've just posted the same teacup and saucer set twice...but I actually have two of these. One belonged to my paternal grandmother, and I found the other in an op-shop. I've since seen a mint green set that wasn't, alas, for sale. One of them was made in Japan, the other is Westminster China Australia.

I'm not one for wearing florals, that much, but I love floral patterns on other things. Especially pink floral patterns!

These are some novelty teapots my sister got for my mum, including a jar of marmalade and a fancy toilet.

Little coffee cups (above & below) - the woman mum bought these from broke one as soon as we went over to buy them...luckily she had multiples so brought in another the next week.

I have a vague notion that these are larger because they were made for men? Both of these (above & below) belong to my mother, as well.

And these are my favourites so I had to post more photos of them.

  3. Those pink ones are so lovely. Pity the mint green one wasn't for sale (isn't it a pain when that happens??).

    I would love a complete tea set, preferably vintage.

  4. What gorgeous little tea cups you have Andi!

    I actually have a bit of a thing for those Japanese off-centre tea cups and that one you have is wonderful. :)

  9. The pink set is gorgeous! I think a whole table setting of that style in pink and mint would be heaven :)

  13. I love those pink teacups so much! They're just so delicate and pretty :)

    I like to collect tea pots and I would expand my collection to cups too if only I had more room! I need more shelves, hehe.
