I haven't contributed in many months as I have been working full time in the city, and unfortunately Op Shopping has had to take a back seat.

My visits have been quick 'once arounds' as shops are about to close for the day, and I have been collecting mostly vintage bone china teacups, saucers and side plates, as well as the usual tablecloths and hand embroidered doileys.

And I am proud to announce that I have passed my love of Op Shopping and collecting beautiful things from the past on to my daughters who are 27 and 18, and they are now coming with me on the rare occasions we all have a Saturday morning off at the same time, to hunt out their own treasures.

Here are a few of my recent finds, which are not just stuck in the china cabinet, but are used daily for a delicious hot chocolate or relaxing cup of tea.

Love all of those gorgeous cups and saucers - they really do make the tea taste better I am sure. Thanks for sharing.

Great collection. Those teacups are so dainty and precious!

Those cups are gorgeous! Nothing throws you back to the past quicker than drinking tea out of an antique teacup, I think.
