Teacup and Saucer Marriage



The cabin teacups are a set of six that I found at a yard sales years back. I fell in love with them! The lady selling them didn't cherish them at all --- so sold them for a quarter apiece. But she did value the saucers. Those she kept because she might need them some day. I will admit that I tried to get her to keep the teacups (I thought it a shame that they be separated). But she felt I was silly to even suggest such a thing! Instead, I purchased the teacups and have enjoyed them these years without saucers. This summer I decided it was time for a teacup and saucer 'marriage' and I've kept my eyes open for saucers that fit the color scheme and china-type of the teacups. The teacup and saucer in this picture is the result of the 'marriage'. I think they look quite nice together --- and there's equilibrium in the teacup and saucer world again!

  3. I recently found your blog through a friend and I must say that I am in love. I love all things tea or tea related. I collect teacups and teapots as well although my collection is miniscule compared to yours. I have enjoyed seeing what you have done for your teas. You have inspired me. Thanks so much.

  4. Hard to believe she wanted the saucers but not the gorgeous cups. Glad you are 'marrying' them! ~Adrienne~

  6. I have done the same thing. My sister collects unusual cups and saucers, so I am constantly on the lookout for one or both. Cindi
