I think I am going to take out the 4 saucerless blue and white cups and either repurpose them (goodness knows what for)
Oh, Bushlady, don't you know you shouldn't say something like that when I am around?
Bless's top 10 15
20 things to do with saucerless tea cups:
1. Use them to make tea cup candles! I did that with some extra Christmas tea cups my neighbor gave me (they did have their saucers, and I hot glued the cups to the saucers, along with a fabric poinsettia and gave them as gifts one year).
2. Make pin cushions! Cut a fabric circle, stuff with some fiber filling, make into a small round pouf to fit into the tea cup, hot glue in place. Give to any friends who sew.
3. Use them as "cup" measures!
4. Use to hold tea parties with granddaughter when she visits.
5. Keep to hold used tea bags.
6. Keep by the kitchen sink to hold a sponge, or scrubbie
7. Keep by the stove to pour bacon drippings (I use one for that purpose).
8. Use to store small sewing notions like buttons, safety pins, etc.
9. Use to store small stationery supplies like paper clips, push pins, etc.
10. Use to hold jewelery - by the sink for rings taken out while doing dishes; on the dressing table for earrings, etc.
11. Use to hold pot pourrie
12. Plant a cactus in it.
13. Buy coordinating saucers (dollar stores often sell plain white saucers) to make sets.
14. Fill with any of the following: tea bags, chocolates, cookies, artificial flowers, bath salts or bath beads, or a small teddy bear, and give as gifts.
15. Bake "cup" cakes in them (in the microwave).
16. Dessert cups - Serve puddings/desserts/fruits/jello in them.
17. Or serve soup: soup "cups"
18. Breakfast "cups" - for oatmeal, coddled eggs, etc.
19. For drinking tea! You don't really need a saucer, all the time.
20. Send to Bless who collects blue & white china, to add to her collection!
