The humble tea-cup, either in porcelain, ceramic or glass, in most cases is not a multipurpose item.  Most people think of it simply as a holder of  hot beverages that we drink from.  Since we’re all about multipurpose pieces, mixing and matching, we wanted to show you a few ideas that we’ve come across that might be fun to try!  We love the antique china tea cups to organize and compartmentalize little accessory items such as rings, small earrings and even for little, easily misplaced items such as safety pins and extra earring backings…we’d love to hear if you give it a try!

In any drawer, antique china tea cups works as a charming and whimiscal storage area along your bed, in your dresser or closet…

Small cups and dishes placed on your bedside table keep everything at arms reach!

Little tea cups hold a multitude of things…you can find these and other unique holders at antique shops and estate sales!

    • Thank you so much Valentina! That’s SO true about the recycling aspect, or even dusting off the ones hiding in the storage and giving them new life…by the way, your book is fanastic! xx ~ Trèsors De Luxe

      • I want to keep and preserve anything beautiful from the past. Obviously it is not always possible due to space constrictions.
        Thank you for the compliment on my book. Are you referring to my latest book on colors: RED – A Voyage Into Colors? Have you seen it?

  1. Thanks for a great idea! I may use it for my own collection, but also, I can suggest this to customers at the estate sales I run where there is often an abundance of teacups.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and “Liking.” This is such a fun blog – great ideas, beautiful objects, and a touch of whimsy. It’s a real pick-me-up for the spirit.
