This owl is one of my favorites, because I like the lightness of the cup; the way it feels in my hand. I drink out of him in the afternoon. He was made in Japan, as most of mine are. Of course I love all my florals. Most of my cups are from the 1970's also.
I found these at St. Vincent de Paul for .49 cents. I use the red check one for camping and for picnics in the backyard.
The one with pears is the first one I began collecting. I got the idea from my sister Sharon. Sharon always had these cute coffee cups. Many of them were pedestal cups. She told me she paid less than a dollar for them at thrift shops.
I got so intrigued by the idea that I could have variety for so cheap, and be so thrilled with my purchases. When looking for a cup I like to find a certain shape, and the pattern must go all the way around. It has to feel light and nice in my hand.
These are bone china. They are very light weight. I love the cool patterns from the 1970's.
Sometimes the crazier; the better. I couldn't resist these colorful ones. Today I'd like to share my collection of coffee cups.
"My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life."
