I have a special place in my heart for orphans - who doesn't? 💕 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 🐶
