I love vintage mugs and teacups. Even before I thrifted, I used to love looking at all the different new mugs in kitchen stores. I remember telling my mom that I wanted to open a coffee shop where all the mugs were unique; my mom’s reply was that it would be very strange and hard to regulate serving size. Millions of years later, I still think it’s a good idea, and it would be even better with thrifted mugs!
I’m wont to chain-drink tea, so I put my cups to good use. But I have so many that James limited the amount allowed in the kitchen: only the ones that fit in the cupboard. Fair enough. So I’ve had to be creative with my uses:
Mugs and teacups are great for holding little odds and ends: I use this one for my sewing utensils. I like to fill the cup with rice – it holds everything in place and the sharp ends don’t scrape on the bottom. This is especially helpful for my seamripper, but it works nicely with pencil/pen cups aswell.
I really want to get some fancy coloured rice, but for some reason I always return from the market and realize I’ve forgotten it again. Maybe this week, haha.
Do you have any little organization tricks?
