I've been holding on to my grandmother's teacups for awhile, but don't really throw enough honest-to-goodness tea parties to make them see the light of day as often as I'd like.
Luckily, there are re-purposed vintage teacup projects all over the internet (thanks, internet!), so now it might just be a matter of figuring out which project would best display that fine china. Teacups are pretty easy to come by in any respectable thrifting locale, so it shouldn't be too hard to scoop up some of your own for projects.
