Wow, does that bring back memories of a time before everything was plastic! I remember having tin cups too... I sure wish I still had one! Love the special one you kept from your Grandparents home. What an adorable collection! Love them hanging from hooks, but can't wait to see how you're going to display the new ones!


You do have the cutest things to share! I love little tin tea cups or even the little plates too! So cute! I see these and they remind me of my sand pail when I was little... I would love to collect those but they are just too darn expensive! Hugs! karen....


What a cute collection! I really love the Little Red Riding Hood one. They really do remind me of fun tea parties with stuffed animals and brothers in silly hats... I think we played with my Moms old set at my Grandmas a lot.

I love how you have displayed your cups with the little hooks in your cabinet. My wheels are spinning.

I think those cups are so cute. I can't wait to see the new display. I did see a small Christmas tree (I forget where I saw it) in someone's kitchen using children's tin dishes to decorate it. It was awesome.

Your last picture is exactly how I display my toy cups. Like minds I guess. If I had enough tin toy dishes, and in good shape, I'm just weird enough to want to use them in daily life. I think it would be hilarious to have my kids over for dinner and serve it with those dishes......yikes, I'm psycho!



Darling collection and my favorite is the chubby little greyish kitty! I have had my eye out for that set!! So sweet! xo Heather


This definitely is one of the cutest collections yet - and I love that cup hook display.

Cute collection! I don't think I've seen one of those cups in years! Wonderful collection.



Yes.....you do have the cutest things to share!Very sweet that you snagged the little tin cup that you remembered playing with.Love how you have them displayed too!
Thanks for sharing :-)


I'm wondering if you've ever seen the tin tea set shown in this photograph? This is my sister and myself-Christmas 1949. I know it had blue in it. I can usually look at old B&W photos and remember colors. Whenever I see any tin I look for this set, but I've had no luck.


These are SO sweet! I am always tempted by the little china tea sets but I'm holding the line and resisting.


Such a very cute collection!! :) Love all the pretty colors and cuteness to each tea cup! :) Hope you have a Happy Memorial day! xo Holly
