A Recent Purchase....





Well, I finally purchased a blue and white tea cup set. I found it on Ebay. It's funny I didn't realize it until a few days ago but the same cup that I purchased on Ebay was the same cup that I had on my inspiration grid at work.




This is my inspiration grid. It has things that I love. I have a room in the middle that is from a French hotel. I love the furniture! I have my dream Chanel bag. Peonies from my bouquet last year. A chateau that is for sale in Normandy and last but not least the blue and white tea cup that I found on Pinterest and that I just loved.






Here is the photo on Ebay. I seriously didn't realize it was the same cup until the day before it shipped! Uncanny right?

So I made an offer and it was accepted! I received it on Friday and here it is below. 








Now it is exactly as she said in the description, I just didn't realize that it would be so small. 





But I have to keep in mind that these cups are from the 40's and everything was in smaller portion sizes back then. I still love it but the search continues for my blue and white cup. I do love my new set that I picked up last week. 





I do love these cups. They were such a wonderful find! I sort of wish I would have picked up those crystal vases too! Oh well all the more reason to continue to go antiquing!

  1. Love your new tea cup and saucer. It's beautiful and dainty. It will fit in perfectly with your other blue and white china.
