Clare’s Collections – coffee cups signing out!

I never collected much of anything as a child. I have NO IDEA where the desire comes from now, as an adult. But I collect LOTS! And so I’m sharing some of the pretty, to stop Hubby from boxing it all away in the loft when he gets tired of it around the house :).

And there’s more… Coffee Cups.

This is the last for a while – not that I’m stopping collecting LOL just that I’m wary of wearying you all with my personal obsessions. This is another charity purchase, a full set of 4 cups, from the wonderful Saturday market in Lymington, when we were there for the weekend last year.

Do you browse charity shops and fairs? What’s your favourite thing to collect?

*SIGH* another set I can’t remember the provenance! I love the bold colours, even the blue inside. Though I’m a bit “off” about coloured insides in a cup, as if it makes the coffee taste different – do you have any odd habits like that (or is it just me)?

These were a stylish set from another Spanish holiday. I’m a sucker for the black saucers! I also like an unusual cup shape, though it’s not always easy to drink from LOL.

These were a family hand-me-down. So delicate I’d be scared to use them! The colours are reminiscent of my Nana’s china that we inherited when we moved into her house.

These were another charity shop find. Modern and probably not expensive to start with, but I love the geometric design. I don’t know what art genre that would be?

These came beautiful Barcelona. So did a salt ‘n pepper set, shot glasses, a set of cake plates… but that’s all for another day LOL.

This week starts with… Coffee Cups.

These came from a charity shop. My picture doesn’t do the bright scarlet colour enough justice. Funny thing is, I don’t even drink espresso LOL but I adore the delicate size and shape.
