The China Syndrome

It started out innocently enough. I ran across a very old pair of bone china cups with saucers by Minton. They were a gorgeous coral branch pattern. They were only big enough to hold 1/2 cup of coffee but I might start drinking espresso, I told myself. Just for these cups. Sold.


That wasn't the end, though. This china took ahold of me.
So, I set out to find more...and over a few years, I did.





Then last night I found these coffee cups. Perfect.
