Collage of Tea Cups and Saucers

My collection of tea cups and saucers is constantly growing. This collage represents one afternoon's harvest from a local thrift store--orphan tea cups and saucers. No matched sets were found that day, yet somehow they all work together. There's even a saucer commemorating Queen Elizabeth's 1953 coronation!

I totally embrace this aspect of shabby chic living, especially when it comes to items for my tea table.

  4. Hi. Maria! It looks like a lot in the collage, but it's just two tea cups and three saucers. I know, I was shocked to find all that thrifty goodness in one place on a given afternoon!
