Who doesn’t love a pretty tea cup?
The tea cup above served mostly coffee, to my mom and dad. I can look at those roses and be ten again.
And this is my grandmother’s Lenox, the Ming pattern.
Here’s the gold-rimmed china that graced my great-aunt’s Thanksgiving table. My aunt had no children, so her china came to me.
And finally, our wedding china.
An abundance of tea cups. Sadly, rarely used.
I prefer to drink my tea from a mug. And when we have company, I often send the wine bottle around another time instead of hopping up to make coffee or tea.
So a quandary. What to do with so many tea cups?
Giving them away or selling them yanks mightily at my heart. My daughters, at least right now, are politely saying, “No thanks.”
This is a downsizing project I’m putting off for a while.
What about you?
Are you blessed/cursed with an abundance of tea cups?
Times have really changed tea cup-wise.
Hey! Here’s a happy change. Tea in funky forms.
