Violet Teacup

Remember my mix-and-match violet tea-set? I found another cup-and-saucer to go with it! That makes four... and each one different. This one's not quite as pretty as the other three, but for $3.50 I'm not complaining!
Isn't it fun to collect something just a little out-of-the-ordinary and then find a piece for your collection at a very reasonable price?

Just thought I'd show you the latest addition as part of Kelli's Show & Tell Friday.

Very pretty. I am in an online tea swap and am looking for a cup and saucer. A pretty china one. Some places one 10-20 bucks for a set. 20 is the spending limit for the swap. And we are to be thrifty and creative!

I am hitting the thrift stores, etc, but no luck yet, I have not given up though. :-)

Lovely! I love the colors and the matching mis-match. I have mis-matched pink depression era dessert plates and got them at very reasonable prices too. Great find!

It's nice to have teacups and saucers that coordinate well together but do not match. They are also great conservation pieces.

I love all kinds of teacups. I think it is very pretty that all of them are different.

Yea! Now you have enough cups for when I come for tea. Would be fun to do that today! Why does it have to be soooooooo far?

I think you are on to something there. I like your set better because they are not all exactly alike. Take care.

I love the idea you are building this set, and they are all a little different. Very neat.
