Why are you buying a single saucer?????????

"Why are you buying a single saucer"? and "What use is an odd tea cup"? are phrases that I have heard on numerous occasions from The Other Half.....he really cannot get his head around why I buy them! I love seeing a single forlorn tea cup sitting all unused and over looked.....
And these photos illustrate exactly why I buy them!!!! This beautiful tea set is completely made up from miss-matched china.....pieces that other people think are fit for the rubbish bin or tip.
I think the miss-matched china tea set illustrates the whole ethos of "shabby chic" Taking something old and unloved and breathing new life and purpose into it, creating something that some one will love and cherish hopefully for many years to come.
This beautiful set will be one of the items for sale in my etsy shop which I am setting up soon, hope you like it as much as I do!!! x x x


i love hearing from other bloggers and try to answer every comment x
