Tea cups, though I have but a few, are items I always pay attention to; I can't really help myself. This has nothing to do with my love for a cup of tea every day and everything to do with how I think that there are a wide variety of personalities across the thousands of tea cup designs out there. I've seen some be overtly feminine and delicate, others rigid, some crass, a few that are very reserved, and then the complete oddballs. Really, they're all very much individual characters and I wish I could have them all (without having to dust and/or wash them all of the time).
The beauties above are some of the few that caught my eye. And, like I do when I remember Pinterest exists, I pin them so that I can freely gawk without having to buy, and later figure out where to display, them.
The photos above, top-to-bottom and left-to-right:
- numerical mugs from Anthropologie (which they no longer sell)
- designed & sold by Bailey Doesn't Bark
- is apparently part of a huge set that I now must own; Black Forest tableware by Dibbern
- & 5. "Hidden Animal Tea Cups" designed by Ange-line Tetrault.
I'm sure to add more tea cups, and tea cup related items, to Pinterest, so check out the Tea Cups board.
