Instant Collection

My sister's shower was technically supposed to be a tea party, but with the unbelievable heat in the studio that day, no one wanted anything but gallons of water (and lemonade). We had all gathered tea cups to actually drink out of, but we used them as decorations instead. A few days before the shower I had a stroke of crafty genius and decided to re-label dozens of tea bags.
So instead of using the tea bags, I laid them in the tea cups!
My mom flew in with a box full of china, and she decided to give me her collection instead of flying back with them again. I don't blame her, I'd be so nervous to fly with so many pretty little breakables!
I think this green one on the left, the blue floral one, and the little scalloped one are my favorites. I have to find a cute way to display them! And now I have a new collection to add to, although I kinda feel like I'm cheating because I got an already-established collection instead of starting from scratch :)
