Expresso Cups

The first year I attended the World's Longest Yard Sale and before I was a blogger I 'started' a collection with one buy.
Expresso or small coffee cups
Here are two of the cups that started the collection
along with these two.  All four seem to be from cafe's in Brazil.  I was going to buy one but the seller said take them all for the price of one...sold!
Since then I've added a few more to the collection.  Both of these cups are from Starbuck.
(the bunnies are from my daughter's collection)
The back cup is a New Orleans souvenir cup and the front cup is from Antoine's Restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans. 
I am not the one who 'took' this from the restaurant but gladly bought it at a thrift shop.
I've eaten at this amazing restaurant once and a small butter plate might have found it's way into my purse after a few glasses of wine.  I never do that sort of thing now!
Included in this collection are a few small coffee cups from airlines...also found at thrift shops
These are also Airline coffee cups
National Airlines and Pan Am
A restaurant ware cup and a cute little modern expresso cup, both thrift shop finds
These are two fun cups, small in size so they joined the collection!

Hope you enjoyed my little collection and no, 
I don't drink expresso! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Should I be checking your purse next time we travel? LOL

Love your collection. I started my friend on a butter pads collection each year for her B-day and almost wish I would have done it for myself too.

Love that you've tucked all the bunnies in the collection.

Linda - you have to try espresso - it is so good and you are so ready for it.

I use a restaurant ware demitasse cup in my clear glass sugar canister & an old teacup in my flour canister. I love all your cups!

Quite the collection of small coffee cups. I do not drink coffee either and did not know why some cups were so small. Love the one from Antoine's!

Donna said...

What a great collection, Linda! Now all you need is one from Paris! I don't drink espresso either. It seems that I was in the minority when we visited Italy last summer. I always ordered cappuccinos instead. I really do miss the cream in my coffee when we travel to Europe, they never seem to have it with coffee! So funny about the butter plate hopping in your purse:)

Hi Linda! Love all of these neat little cups! I've always wanted to go to that garage sale but it's never been close to me!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

So cute Linda, and I love the stories about you collected them. I have one of "those" restaurant stories too....ooops, it just slipped into my purse; years ago of course.

What a cute collection! I love mini/tiny things myself, so I look out for these too. You have some nice ones. I don't like espresso either, but I would never turn down a latte!

I LOVE coffee! Your collection of cups is wonderful. I also love how you display your different collections on the shelves. They look great together on the cute shelf. :)

This is a new collection (to me) of yours! I love it, Linda - what a neat idea to collect those darling cups. Love the cup from Antoines.

Such a cute collection! Your cubbies come in handy for so many lovely things. Hope you have a great Friday! No baby yet? I know you can't wait!

Sarah said...

Like I've said many times, "It's always fun to see what you put in your cubbies."
Happy Easter Weekend!

Oh Linda, you are too cute! Someone took that sweet cup and you found it at a great sale! HeeHee! I do not have really good steak knives and I tell the hubby if we were not so honest we could go to dinner at a steakhouse once a week and get a collection of good steak knives! LOL! Never, we are too honest but when I was younger I might have been braver! HaHaHa! Of course, if I cook at home everyday I might be able to save anough to get some great steak knives!? Any ideas what is a good brand that won't break the bank? HUgs, Anne
