I especially like tea cups even though I never really use them at home.
When I was thinking about blogging about tea cups today the lovely Samara of maddabling posted a blog that included this awesome tea cup shop on etsy, DadsTeacups.
I found many faves there but am particulary fond of this fruity little one -

I also love tea cup art -

Here are some fine works by Aussie artists and designers.

Now if I did have a tea cup collection I'd want to display them, maybe like this -

I also love the many things you can create using teacups -
Cake stands -

You can use them as planters -

And finally I scourd my cupboards for some teacups.
You see I'm really a mug of tea girl and have a mighty collection of mugs from my travels, but realise I am sadly lacking in the pretty cup department.
However I found these in my mum's china cabinet, which my daughter has inherited.
They are family heirlooms, but I'm ashamed to say I know nothing of their history.
This on has "Japan" stamped on the bottom.
This set is Royal Worcester and quite old by the look of the design.
Look how fine and fragile the handle is.
Do you have family heirlooms?
What about teacups? Are you a tea cup fan too?
