Another recent conversation I had where tea sets/teacups came up, was with a cousin. I was telling her about my vintage and thrift shop purchases. She then asked if I was able to see tea sets/teacups up for sale in the shop because she likes them. Oh my goodness, you too! I told her I'll keep an eye on it the next time I visit the thrift shop.
After our conversation, I realized that there seems to have a tea set craze going on and my curiosity was perked, so I searched for tea sets images. The search results generated, lo and behold, so many beautiful tea sets and teacups! They are so pretty, no wonder a lot of women fall in love with them and I think I'm about to count myself in! I actually do have a small demitasse collection (blogged here) but I guess they're different from those fine teacups.
Lately, in such coincidence, I decided to cut my coffee intake so instead of my usual mug, I have been having my coffee in a teacup. The day, I went back to the thrift shop, I particularly looked for tea sets/teacups. I saw one set but it was too expensive and looked overused. There were many teacups though, some with their matching saucers and some without. They too are quite expensive. But this pair, I love so much so I bought it! Makes my breakfast more enjoyable!
It is a Mikasa brand. I would really love to know if this is vintage. No search results for this particular design came up.
On another trip back to the thrift shop, I bought this teapot. I am not a huge fan of tea right now but at one point during my active days in Swap-bot, I received a lot of different flavored tea packets which I also enjoyed. I was even lucky to win a give-away of a few tea inside this cute tea wallet!
