Tea Cups and Roses

Vintage Tea Cup Candles

I love vintage china.  
I've been collecting for years and have amassed a sizable collection......  always gravitating towards those with rose motifs..
I have several full sets, lots of tea cups and saucers and many mix and match pieces.
I use them in a variety of ways.....  such as hanging single plates on the wall instead of framed art and using the well loved and chipped pieces in my mosaic projects.  
I wanted to give handmade gifts this Valentine's Day so I decided to make tea cup candles.
I made a number of candles keeping this one for myself.
I plan to take a relaxing bath and read my favorite magazine to sweet smelling candle light.

Have a wonderful weekend 
Happy Pink Saturday!

That is just a beautiful idea, Elizabeth What a wonderful Valentine's Day gift those made
I love rose patterned china, too, but I do not have a very big collection.
You always have gorgeous posts. xo Diana

A great idea and thought. I have a set of the birthday cups and saucers I wish I could sell. I do not need things anymore.

Alessandra said...

Such a lovely idea! Your tea cups are wonderful, delicate and full of romance. Your pictures are very sweet as usual.

That's lovely, I don't think I've ever seen that pattern!
