I'm a tea drinker. There. I've said it.
Most days I drink my tea out of mugs. It's just easier that way. But sometimes I want to drink it out of a dainty cup. So I collect bone china tea cups. I've paid as much as $24 for a tea cup -- but that was when I had a regular day job. Those days are gone. So now I look for bargains.
This little beauty (called "Geranium") was just such a bargain. I got it at a yard sale for a dollar. Why? A tiny hairline crack in the cup. I really, REALLY had to look at it a couple of times before I saw it. But will that distract from the pleasure of a nice cuppa? I think not.
On the same day, I came across this coffee mug. I love clunky old restaurant china and have many pieces. This, alas, is not old, but it was only a dime. If nothing else, it'll make a nice place to put pens and pencils.
Or I could just put it in the daily mug rotation.
What's your favorite cup/mug for tea (or coffee or cocoa)?
