Tea Cups, Tea Cups, Tea Cups

I bought a vintage birdcage at an antique show in July. I couldn't think of what to put in it until Amber suggested a small plant. The first plant I bought was HUGE and did not fit at all. My Tupper vision was way off. Try number two was a success. I put a succulent in a tea cup and I think it is very cute.

Amber and Mike made two tea cup yard ornaments for me several Christmas' ago. I am limited in the number of SOS I can have in my yard. (stuff on a stick - family friendly version). Here is how I solved that problem. I have a tomato planter that had slots for a trellis. Instead, I planted flowers and put the tea cups in the slots. Next year I think I'll plant climbing flowers to climb up the stakes.

I got to wondering what other kinds of tea cuppy goodness is out there in the world. Here is some of what I found:

Here are some beautiful tea cup wine goblets. How did they do this? via

Now I want to run out and buy more of these lovelies to make some of these projects. Hmmmm, in true wrinkly fashion I am probably just dreaming.
