Sit and Sip

I've never collected much of anything but every once in a while I see a beautiful cup or saucer and I just have to have it. Perhaps it's because tea is such a wonderful liquid. It's warm and soothing when you're sick and it can be refreshing and exhilarating in the summer in the iced form: iced-tea.

And there is only one liquid that is consumed more than tea: water.

How 'bout you, do you have any items you collect?

Here are a few of the tea cups I've collected over the years. This one is my favorite:



But this one is pretty too:

 And I love the flowers and pretty patterns:

And even if the cup doesn't come with a saucer, sometimes I still buy it:

And the cups don't even have to be old or delicate. They just need to speak to me, like this one:

It's like drinking from a flower...at least that's how I think of it.

So sit and sip some beverage and enjoy more than the day. . .remember to even enjoy the vessel you're drinking from :)

My grandma has a teacup collection. I'm kind of hoping no one else wants it.
