Some of favorite teacups

With  Springtime officially coming up this month it makes me think of teacups.  I love all the pretty little flowers them.   I really need to get my teacups out of the basement and display them.  Here are a few pictures that I took a few years ago.

I bought the metal dress mannequin at Goodwill and painted it off white and added  one of my favorite teacups.




Here is  teacup in the first picture.

  6. Your teacups are lovely, Jody! I love teacups and china in general. I see you live in Colorado. My son will be moving to Colorado in the Fall for his post-doc. It sounds like beautiful country. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you. Colorado is a pretty great state to live in. The only thing I don't like is that we don't really have a Fall and Spring. It usually starts snowing in October and can still snow in May.

  10. Wonderful post.
    My love for vintage china started years ago with an antique cup and saucer. Then it was on to tea pots, misc plates and full sets. Now I am addicted. I have so many that I have started finding other uses for them. I made a bunch of vintage tea cup candles for Valentines Day. They were a hit.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Will visit again soon.

    1. What a great idea. They would make a great gifts. I think it would be fun to glue 3 or more on top of each other and make a lamp out of them.

  15. Your link caught my eye on Inspiration Monday. I just love teacups, but I have not displayed mine in my home as beautifully as you have. Very pretty.

    1. I have a little room in my house with bookcases that I use for storing all my plates and some of the decor I use through out my home. I think that I will display most of them there. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  18. They're beautiful! Do bring the out!! Just today I took mine out of a bin in the basement, which I've been wanting to do for some time, and after seeing these old friends I really want to have them out! I told myself I MUST do a post with them! Thanks for further inspiring me!! ~Zuni

    1. We have lived in this house almost 3 years now and I still have some boxes that I haven't opened. If you can believe it just the other day my husband said he was ready to move. I told him that I was not ready and we just got the house almost how we want it. He just doesn't like living in an HOA community. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

    1. Yes I saw those. I tried that once. I glued the teacup to the saucer and also added a little stuffed teddy bear around the cup.
