Midday Muse: Treasury of Teacups

I spotted this collection of tea cups in a store window recently (excuse the gate), and was inspired to start gathering mismatched antique teacups to display in my own home. Even a chipped and color-faded antique demitasse set looks magnificent when displayed amongst friends of similar form. The good thing is that these teacups are not usually too expensive, and you can find them at second-hand shops, antique shops, and of course eBay. The key to it, I think, is designating a shelf or glass cabinet for them to live out their old age, so the collection looks intentional and not like you pulled the short stick in an inheritance raffle.
