The Eye of the Beholder

Today at the junk store, I found four of these. I resist most things at those stores, but I was done for on this one. I bought them. 50¢ a pair. That's not too much financial damage.
I don't know why I love these old cups. They remind me of what you'd be served in old diners, or perhaps an old hotel in the '50s. I know they're thick and clunky, but that's part of what I like! I also like bone china so thin you can see through it. But these really appeal to me. I came home and promptly heated up a cup of tea.

Are there things that you find beautiful, that others don't? Each to her own.

  1. Oh, I would have bought them, too! I love thick old dishes very much! The green is lovely and your tea matches perfectly.
    Good buy!
    Happy New Year, MK!
