Collecting Tea Cups



Hello everyone,
I'm delighted you're here for a visit. If this is your first visit to My Cozy Corner welcome.  Today, I'm sharing my 'Tea Cup' collection. Since, I'm half English, I think I've inherited the tea drinking gene and also the love of beautiful tea cups.
This summer Sweetheart and I updated our 90's kitchen and dining room. We painted the walls and installed new flooring, plus some other updates I'll be sharing soon. Well I had to completely empty my 'Tea Cup' cabinet. While the tea cups were sitting on our table I took a few photos. I have a few!!!
I hope you'll find a favorite.
I have a few tea sets. Tea cup, saucer and dessert plate. I didn't photograph them this time. Maybe sometime later if you want to see them.
There are many different styles and colors.
Do you see a tea cup and saucer similar to one in your cupboard?
I've collected most of the tea cups in the past four years.
Thrift shops, estate sales and yard sales.
Do I need more? YES!
Do I have space for more? NO!
Will I keep looking and buying? YES!
Gosh, I hope you've enjoyed this post.
I have enjoyed sharing my 'Tea Cups' with you.

  2. What a great collection. I love to use mixed settings. My family and friends all have their favorite and that is where they choose to sit at the table.

  9. Hi Betty,
    Happy New Year! What a fabulous collection of teacups you have! Most of mine came from thrifting too and it is fun to hunt for them, isn't it? One of these days, I'm going display mine on a table and count them because I don't know how many sets I have and it would be nice to know. Thank you for sharing your pretties at my HOME and have a lovely weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  12. Oh my goodness they are beautiful! The only one I have right now - aside from a few little saucerless orphans - is a newer cup-and-saucer in Royal Albert Old Country Roses. I do love teacups, however I don't drink tea (I do think I should START, however! LOL) so I don't collect them. Dessert plates, on the other hand... well I love dessert so I have quite a few of those! :) Can't wait to discover more of your lovely blog, thank you!

  17. I LOVE your collection. I collect teacups, too, and love looking for those that have something unique: a scalloped top or different shaped cup or I even have one with an added porcelain strip across the top of the cup for keeping men's moustaches dry while drinking! How do you store your fabulous collection? Oh, I could swoon at how lovely they look huddled together! Love your photos!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  21. I enjoyed looking at these! I used to have a lot of tea cups as well when I lived in our little cottage. We used to buy one on each anniversary and then we had many as gifts and so forth. We have downsized and when we sold our spindle cottage we left a lot of the tea cups at the cottage. Now I only have a handful. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Susie,
      Yes, I love them all . Each cup and saucer has a story. I have a large china cabinet in my dining room with the tea cups and tea sets displayed for my pleasure. I love to set tea tablescapes and have tea parties for my dear friends on special occasions. Thanks for visiting.

  27. Hi Betty A girl can never have too many teacups! I have a lot to but none the same as yours. Lovely collection. When I was a young bride many years ago my mothers friends gave me a cup and saucer shower, which started my collection. Over the years I have given lots away as gifts and people seem to really appreciate them.
