Lovely old china teacups

I collect them. They are so delicate, and charming. I bought this one from a lady who was selling a box full. She didn't love them but I did. I bought several from her.

I can't remember where I got this one, but isn't it lovely. The details inside of the cup are such a sweet surprise.

I think I bought this one for cheap at the St. Vincent de Paul store. I've never seen another one like it. I love the dandelion seeds inside and memories of making a wish and blowing.

I can't remember where I got this one.

This one I bought from Value Village. Every time I see it It reminds me of my Grandma Oelrich who passed away years ago. She had a modest collection of tea cups and this was one of the patterns she had.

I only have a few teacups that I've collected the bread and butter plate for as well. This one came as a set from the WIN (women in need) store downtown. It is a very fragile, and dignified looking set. I imagine it was used on old ships like the Titanic.

This one would have been a favorite of my other grandma I'm sure. She passed away years ago and she was Irish. It is also a good time of year to bring it out and use it. Happy early St. Patrick's Day.

Isn't this a sweet set. When I look at it I imagine a bunch of little girls having a tea party. It is very delicate and feminine.

This one is over the top decorated. Gold and Roses all over. I hope you like this peek at part of my collection. If you like them let me know and I'll happily share somemore of my collection with you.
