Every morning I drink coffee out of a big ol’ coffee cup. Some have photos of my kids, some have names of universities or “certain” coffee store logos. I like them because they’re big and they hold a lot of coffee. A lot of caffeine.
As I drink my coffee every morning, or reach for my afternoon tea, I often think “I should use a pretty tea cup”. You know, like the ladies on Downton Abbey.
Tea cups and coffee cups are easy to come by in your local antique shop or thrift store. There are so many types and styles available. I did a little Etsy searching and was so impressed by the number of tea cups that have a “modern” look. They coordinate with today’s trends, or have a timeless aesthetic that makes them as chic today as they were in their time. Here are some of my favorite “modern” vintage tea cups:
Aren’t these amazing pieces of china? Can you find one that coordinates with your style? Do you think you could transition over to a smaller modern vintage tea cup for your modern coffee? Or are you happy with your mug?
