Vintage Teacups

When I moved out for the first time, my grandma gave me a set of the cutest little teacups and saucers. I wouldn't actually use them because they are antiques, but I would have them on display (and still do), which helped cheer me up if I was ever lonely.

This one's for you Anna (of Cornflake!), who recently spotted the yellow teacup in a post last week. These make me happy because of the colors, floral detail inside each cup, and the cute little gold handles.

Oh, my, what pretty little teacups.
I so love the colours, too. The yellow teacup is especially lovely.
I have antique teacups, too, but I use them daily:-)

They are such pretty teacups, I love the little flowers on the inside. It's lovely to be given little gifts like this, my grandmother gave me her mothers cutlery set and rolling pin and it means so much to me to have them.

So sweet and special since they are from your Grandma! I like the pink the best. I have some Depression glass from my great aunt and it holds great sentimental value to me. xo

They are so lovely. The different colours make them even prettier. I would be so tempted to drink from them every day!

Okay what brand are they, what do you know about them, I have to have a set, I need to add them to my antique store list. Read the bottom carefully and tell me what you see please Poppies. I need any numbers as well.
These are real keepers! I still have my Grandmother's china too! Love it!

Why having boring white plates when you can have these stunners!! Love the bright colors... so fun!

Bren said...

These are so sweet Shawna! I have my Grandmother's china, and always think of her when I use it. Thank God she had good taste! I still love it, but maybe I just love it because it was hers? Speaking of tea, have you broken out of your Earl Grey routine? :)
