As a true Brit, I fit the stereotype perfectly—I love a good cup of tea!

There’s nothing quite like sipping from a lovely vintage cup; somehow, the tea tastes better. I relish indulging in a fancy afternoon tea on special occasions, complete with all the trimmings. However, my affection for delicate teacups does have one drawback: my clumsy nature.

Unfortunately, quite a few of these beautiful cups end up chipped or cracked under my less-than-delicate care. But not all is lost! Instead of mourning their demise, I save these wounded warriors for my upcycled crafts.

These are all such pretty teacup projects! I just sold 7 of my mom's teacups that she left with us when she passed in January. (Don't worry... her collection was huge, and every single member of the family took their favorite one(s)... and the married grands took one for each of the great grands, too! So glad to see you at Tuesday Turn About this week, and happy to be featuring your post! Pinned!

Thank you so much. That's lovely idea every member of the family having one of her teacups. Sorry for your loss.
