I need a tea cup and saucer!

I really like these tea cups! I think that they are so pretty!

I sadly don't have any kind of tea cup and saucer set :( Every time I want to buy one they are $12 dollars or more and I think that is kind of expensive for ONE tea cup and saucer. Am I wrong? I love this little pink and gold tea cup.

The reason why I need a tea cup and saucer is because I bought this great little stand to display them.

It's metal painted white, and I just think it is really cute and romantic.

Tre chic! I haven't had any luck finding tea cups and saucers in my local thrift stores either. I really just want to find a cute set at Goodwill for like $4 but I can't I find any! lol Of course I find really cute ones in Shabby decorating stores everywhere but like I said they start at $12 and go up from there and I'm not really willing to pay that much but I might have to huh!? I will have to just find the most beautiful tea cup and saucer then. :) I love looking at everyone elses sets.

I have two thoughts here...
~I think that if you really love it $12 isn't too much. (or $15 for that matter...)
~If you spend $12, you really, truly MUST use it - for your morning tea or coffee, afternoon chai, honey/lemon water when you aren't well. You absolutely can't display it - even if your display is darling. Something else will have to go on that. You deserve to spoil yourself with a tea cup and then each time you use it, you will remember that you are worth having something so sweet~

I love those pics of the tea cups and saucers...they are so pretty!! I hope you find one soon. I feel the same way about spending that much for one. But the nice ones cost that much around here also. I would use it a lot but display it also. :) Have ya checked on ebay or craiglist? Maybe they would have one. And definately try looking at garage sales for that would be the best price. Happy hunting!! :)

Hugs & Blessings,


Thanks for the giveaway info....I will go check those out. ;)

How about looking at yard sales or estate sales?

Ok..here is the thing with ebay, etc. You might get one cheaper..but...you must figure in shipping and sometimes that can run you right past what you want to pay. I admit to paying a lot for a cup and saucer I REALLY love. I have many and love them all. Probably my favorites are my Beatrix Potter ones of the seasons. Exquisite. Keep looking because that special one marking this time of your young life..is out there! $12.00 is NOT expensive for one you love! :) (old spend thrift here!)

Beautiful tea cups!
I'm an obsessive collector of tea cups and
A couple of years ago my grandmother gave me a beautiful sky blue tea set as a wedding gift.
It was a wedding gift for her for over 50 years, without doubt the best gift I received on my wedding day!
