| i’ve had these tea cups for a few years, hidden away in the cupboard, never really knowing what to do with them. my grandmother loved tea. often you would find a tea bag on the end-table beside her favorite chair or you would see her tea cup storing a used tea bag, saving it for the next cup. the cups are so beautiful, i have always been afraid to use them for drinking, for fear that i might chip them or break them. while cleaning my bedroom this weekend, i realized that i could place my everyday jewelry in and around them–finally a way to bring them out from the cupboards!! it’s a practical, yet girly way to remember my grandma every time i look at her tea cups.
