52 Colors :: Week 1

This teacup is from my mom’s formal china set, and is in pristine condition because no one was ever allowed to use it. I never even knew she had a formal china set (we aren’t really formal people) till I was a teenager and watched my sister register for china for her wedding. Mom’s set is from Japan, so there isn’t a traditional saucer, despite having a traditional teacup. It does, however, come with saki cups and wasabi/chopstick holder plates, which I kind of love.

I went with this soft gray/blue color for week 1 because it’s so calming, and a perfect, quiet color for winter, don’t you think?

    Beautiful! I love it, the color and the china! Oh gosh, it reminds me of my parents set, a Noritake silver rose, very similar in the grey and silver. It was our dinner china and we used it all the time. I remember not being very fond of it when I was growing up, but now that my mom's older…and I'm older :), I love it!
    Happy New Year, Brandi!

    It *is* a lovely teacup. Shame your mom doesn't use it more often. I think things like that should be used and enjoyed more than they are… Otherwise, what's the purpose of having it if just to look at them? :(
