On Hoarding

It has been more than three years since I started collecting cups and right now, I have more or less 160 teacups and mugs stored and displayed at home.  This collection started out as an amusement to nice patterns and it kind of blown up to hoarding (yes, I admit I was at that point…

On Aging

   Sipping my coffee in this red Churchill cup and saucer, enjoying my alone time and treasuring these moments that I am at home and not feeling the need to do something or be productive. I was raised to denounce laziness. We have to be always doing something whether it is for school or a…

Heirloom

This week had been quite an experience. I was asked by a friend to look after their daughter and by look after, it means they drop her off at 6:30AM in my place, I feed her breakfast then take her to school which starts at 9AM and ends at 10AM. On Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays,…

The Struggle

I wasn’t as busy as the previous weeks yet I totally forgot to write this week. I guess this is because I have been procrastinating with taking new photos of my chinas. You see, I am struggling with taking good photos of them. The recent ones I’ve taken I feel are not post worthy and…

Small but Irresistible

I’ve seen thousands of cups in many designs and I am always left in awe seeing each of them. Some were very intricate and some are simple yet dainty. Naturally, most of them are expensive. The featured cup for today’s post is a Foley espresso cup. When I saw it was really torn because I’ve…

Immortality

This week has been so hectic and toxic. My naive mind has always thought charity work will bring out the best in people. I never knew until I experienced it first hand that it can also highlight the greed of people. So this weeks blog title is Immortality. I chose this so because it made…

A Fragile Heart

Doing a quick post for this packed week. Last weekend I bought some tin cups with quirky lettering for myself and some friends. The funniest of all this one which I gave to a friend who hosts a booze cruise event every month. Unlike me, she isn’t a coffee or tea drinker but boy can…

A Favorite

  I got sick last week that I needed to be hospitalized for 4 days. The week before that, my parents visited me for my father’s 60th birthday. I think everything went well and mine and husband’s preparations for the party paid off. I thought I would share this favorite cup which is what I…

An Impromptu

My folks are coming over for my father’s 60th birthday so I had to do some cleaning. I was on to my cupboard when I opened it and this view greeted me. This half of my collection which I have decided to share with you. My they have grown so much in just a span…

Beginnings

My love affair with teacups and china pieces started with my love for food and coffee. I thought how cute it is to have nice canvas for the food that I am eating. It will surely make the experience more fun! I started with making cheap purchases in home furnishing stores, thrift shops and eventually…
