Vintage Tea Cups Love Affair


I think I enjoy photograph my vintage tea cups and plates collection very much. It seems like every now and then I love taking them out and just enjoy looking at them.  I rarely buy them anymore due to the price is getting higher; so I treasure these pretty dainty feminine tea cups for my own personal collection and enjoyment.




I started collecting and buying vintage china after I had an aorta repair surgeries. I was hospitalized for 2 months and went under 3 major open heart surgeries to repair the sudden erupted aorta in 2004. Recovery took a very long time. While staying at home I shopped on Ebay and bought many of vintage plates, serving platters and tea cups.




I bought quite a few  of them that occasionally I would serve  dinner out of my vintage  dinner plates, salad, desert, serving platters that I collected enough for 10 people family party.  Of course they are all do not match but I somehow attracted to a 'blue band' one. So at least they are all in blue color. And I think they are quite pretty when displaying them all together on the dining table. Now I could not find them as easy as finding them back then. So I stopped adding my collection. I can only suspect they are getting rare and hard to come by. Well, I am glad that I have collected a few.


I served high tea to an old friend of mine who came to New York from Italy a few months a go. {Last seen here} She is also a vintage tea cups  lover. So it was so much fun having her because we shared our love about vintage china and tea cups together.

For sure I will be having more high tea party in the future.




Can you see that I changed each object in the back ground ?  I am experimenting taking picture with depth of field lens and I love what this lens does.



 Happy Labor Day Everyone & thank you for stopping by !
