Some of you may be aware of my addiction to teacups, especially really old delicate ones, they just don't make them like this anymore and the replicas they do make don't  have the history attached to them. When I come across a teacup in a charity shop or flea market I instantly think of a little old lady and the teas when they would be brought out for special occasions.  Proper tea with a strainer, homemade cakes and sandwiches eaten in the parlour which was only used for special guests.
My husband curses me when I come home with yet another teacup and I have made some into teacup candles using recycled candle remnants but it seems such sacriledge, teacups are for tea !
