I have always loved collecting antiques. I think it started when I was a little girl and would go to my grandparents house and admire their china hutch with all the family heirlooms inside. I especially loved the teacups. Anytime we had hot tea or apple cider, I would beg to use one of them. I would carefully take my time choosing the perfect one for that moment and then my grandma and I would sit and sip tea while we talked.
I sure thought I was grown up back then. I treasure those memories and want to even make some with my own daughters. I love the idea of being able to just sit down, relax and enjoy each others company at a slower pace than our usual life.
While I have some teacups set aside for our future “dates,” I often see older, cracked and very used ones at garage sales and that gave me an idea. Why not buy them and let the girls use them for decorating! My daughters are very much in to the fairy gardens trend right now, so I decided to gather some ideas on how to use old teacups for crafts. In fact, these might just be our daughters’ birthday party theme next year! How fun would that be?!
