Teacups are so pretty,and I had bought a few alone ones in the hope of finding a similar,not always matching saucer.
In the meantime, I decided to make them useful, while enjoying their beauty, instead of keeping them out of sight in a cupboard.
Today we went hunting, and you can guess what I was hunting for. Yes more lone teacups. Alas at the antique shops we visited,they were so over the top prices,it made me wonder how on earth they possibly make any sales. I don't get a kick out of paying too much for my treasures.
So it's back to the charity shops.
They measure as you might know 1 cupful, and are easier to lift the stuff out of the canister.
So it makes sense that a small pretty coffee cup measures 1/2 cupful
Much prettier than the plastic equivalent don't you think?
I have found I can measure 1/4 or 1/3 easily using the 1 cup;
I found this large 2 cup size quite a while ago and have been using it for collecting the stock when I cook a chicken. Now it has pride of place with my new,vintage pretty measures.
I so enjoy opening my cannisters now.
Now I find these quite ugly,and really don't see me using them again.
