Teacup Treasures.

I was one of those kids who had a million collections of everything.Postcards, smash hits stickers, stamps off the postcards,a scrapbook of Lady Di, Pot birds( always was a bird nerd :)), Enid Blyton books etc etc.
Then as I got older and got my own place I definantly had a thing for nick nacks and ornaments.I love cats so for ages every bday and christmas present was something kitty inspired.Moggie money box’s seemed to be a reaccurring theme!
When I moved in with Wil not only did my real life cats move in but all my clutter and collections too.We had to come to some sort of compremize.I easily morph into a clutterbug.The boyfriend is more minimalist. For a while  he won ( most of my stuff was hidden away in the loft) until my fairly recent obsession with vintage teacups.

It started when a lovely Alice In Wonderland inspired tearooms Callooh! Callay! opened in town.I immediatly fell in love with it.Tea is served in vintage teapots and mismatched china.I wanted some of my own.:-D

Trips to the local car boot sale and charity shops proved fruitful.I soon had enough teacups for several Mad Hatter’s tea partys!

It was then that I looked up on YouTube how to make them into candles ( All my friends and family were soon recieving them for their birthdays, whether they wanted them or not 😉 ). Nowadays I take them to craft fairs and sell them.Its a hobby I love as there is nothing nicer than being complimented on something you have made.:).Plus I have met some fab new friends doing the fairs. All from collecting Teacups.

What do you love to collect?

This post represents day 12 ( Wow I’m impressed i’m keeping up with the challenge!) of #BEDM on twitter and Rosalilium.x

  1. Such beautiful teacups! What a gorgeous thing to collect. I think I could do with a handy ‘how to’ guide for turning tea cups into candles 🙂

  2. Hi
    Quick question on your teacup candles, when do you pour the second little bit in to fill the well? I really love your teacups, I am obsessed too!
