Look what I found!

I did a bit more unpacking the other day and unearthed a box of my grandmother's antique teacups! My aunt gave them to me several years ago, but we never had space to display them in the old house, so they hung out in the attic for the past several years. The yellowed newspaper indicates they've been stored since 1990 and now they'll get to be used and displayed again. So excited. There are a bunch of different sets, but I think this turquoise and white coffee set of 12 is my favorite:

The rest of these are individuals. I'm not sure if they were ever part of a larger set or if they were collected individually. I should ask my aunt sometime.

This one is beautiful and super old:

This one is the least interesting on the outside, but the pearlescent inside is beautiful (and pretty impossible to capture on camera):

This one is really cool and I have no idea how old it is. 50's? 60's?:

This one is gorgeous. It's rimmed in gold and I'm going to put it on my antique secretary desk where I will store paperclips in it. Hooray.

That is so great you've got room now to take those treasures out of storage and display them.
