Teacup measuring cups!

Years ago I came across a set of teacup measuring cups, but I had a friend who I knew would love them so I gave them to her. (She has eight children, so I figured they'd see more use at her house!) Last week I had a wonderful surprise in my mailbox when Karen in Georgia, a recent giveaway winner, sent me these wonderful new teacup measuring cups!

As you can see from the box, they came from Pier 1 Imports. Now that store was not on my "tea radar" as a possible source for tea goodies, but it sure is now!

The set includes 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup teacups. I will so enjoy using these in the days ahead. Thanks again, Karen, for the delightful gift!

These are the cutest things ever. For once, you can actually leave your measuring cups out to be admired. I love these and we have a Pier One near-by. :)

I saw these same measuring cups when I was in Pier 1 a couple weeks ago, but didn't buy them. Wish I had!

Really sweet, and love the bright colours. Also great to use for younger kids.

Unfortunately, we use the metric system in Europe and not 'cups'. So I couldn't use these. Too bad :)

How wonderful! I wouldn't have thought of Pier 1 either! I think there's a store about an hour from us....

I LOVE your blog! It is becoming dangerous though because I've been buying some of the things you have been blogging about! I went to out to Michaels and purchased the adorable paper and now I called Pier One and put a hold on some measuring cups! Thanks for the info!

I haven't been to Pier One in ages. These look cute.

So cute! I may have to look for some, not that I cook all that much...but I do like cute things.

The Pier I store near me has some ceramic measuring teacups but the design/pattern is different and not as cute as yours.
