A home for orphans



I have a special place in my heart for orphans - who doesn't? ๐Ÿ’• Orphaned cups keep finding their way to me; as left overs from larger sets, as part of mixed lots, or sometimes I come across one sitting there lonely and I can't resist. Usually these little cups have been part of a "trio" of a teacup and a coffee cup sharing one saucer. And even though they've lost their siblings, they are still wonderful both for use and display.


Most little coffee cups hold just one double espresso: perfect for coffee lovers. Personally I have a beautiful one with whippets that I like drinking from - I love whippets ๐Ÿถ


Over the years I've been able to delight many friends with a little orphan as a gift. It's perfect also for men, some of whom are not brave enough to admit that they love teacups but love drinking their coffee from an orphaned coffee can...


So I love orphans so much, and they are so much in demand, that I have created a special page on my website - if you need a little gift, or just need to cheer yourself up in this lonely year of the pandemic, then here is where you can find your orphan


You can find all my items here in my shop, and you can also find a whole page with small gifts here. If you always want to see the latest additions, follow me on Instagram... I post pictures and a story every single day.


And if you don't know what to choose, there are gift cards you can send... see the link below! ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ


Happy weekend, and if you are going to make yourself a little coffee, drink it from an orphan! ๐Ÿ’•โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ’•






We sell Gift Cards! ๐ŸŽ
