This and That

posted on: 3.18.2015

Teacups. I dig them. In fact, for years I have dreamed of owning an extensive teacup collection displayed in some sort of lovely shabby chic hutch. But alas I have never had enough space in my series of small apartments, not to mention I live with a man who already finds my measly collection tedious. Although, he does put coffee cups and tea cups in the same category and if that paring were true I would have to agree with him. Regardless, behold my two favorites:

-I bought the first at an antique shop in Morro Bay. How pretty is it?! I swear I feel like Marie Antoinette every time it catches my glance. That is, the happy version of her before the storming of the Bastille and all...

-Tea cups, sea monsters, and boats oh my! I guess my dream space would be somewhere between 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Alice and Wonderland. Luckily, Anthropologie gets me.


  1. I like the first cup the most. I feel like I could buy it at Anthro.

  2. Oh love teacups too! I always look for them when I go into vintage shops.

  3. I really like the first set! It's gorgeous.

  4. I really love the first one! Very old English vibe to it and you're right, I too feel Marie Antoinette when I see it.

  11. Anthropologie has so many cute home decor stuff! Glad you found a teacup there :)


  12. I have so many souvenir coffee mugs that are taking up my kitchen cabinet (and are, frankly, just chunky and in the way) but I love the idea of collecting these delicate teacups... so pretty!

  13. I'm a big lover of tea cups and have a little collection on the go myself. It started a few years ago when I spotted some in a charity shop and they have just grown from there. I do wish there were more occasions when I could get them all out though. xx

  14. Kraken cup! Haha. I love that super cute Anthro teacup!
