Spring Time Tea Ware Finds

Spring time is here!  At least in my corner of the globe.  With the warmer weather and beautiful budding trees it makes me want to take my tea outside. 

I was fortunate enough a week or so ago to be gifted with some darling new additions to my tea cup collection.  After a birthday luncheon my family took me to several antique stores to hunt for tea ware.


Isn't this darling?  It is a single cup and saucer that is in great shape.  The best part- it was $0.80!  I could purchase tea ware all day long at eighty cents!
This find was worth searching around.


These four matching tea cups have me anxious to host a garden tea party; or maybe a Mother's Day tea?  


Again, it is worth spending time, looking around in little shops. These cups and the saucers are in fantastic shape and the set was under $20.00.

I need to get a book on tea cups and saucers that tell collectible pieces from mass produced.  But, at the end of the day I like pretty tea cups and will pick up what catches my eye and fits in my budget.

Here is a close up of these pretty floral cups.


Where do you search for your tea ware?
