It’s Thursday and time for another edition of Thursday Thrifty Treasure. Do you remember those mug trees our moms kept in the kitchen next to the percolator when we were growing up? When is the last time you heard the term percolator? Well this TTT isn’t about a mug tree or a percolator. I know you are sighing a relief.
I love cups and have a bit of a collection but displaying them in unique ways is a challenge.
As I looked in my pantry one day I spotted my three tier wire glass drying rack from World Market. Inspiration struck. My collection includes a lot of blue and white cups and mugs. You probably already suspected that since I don’t hide the fact that blue and white is my absolute favorite color combination. So I pulled the rack out of the pantry and started getting all my blue and white cups together.
As I was hunting down all the blue and white cups in my house I remembered having a small blue willow pitcher. It would be perfect to go on top. I found it and placed it on a small plate which gives the pitcher the stability it needs to sit on top.
The little pitcher looked unfinished so I added some silver plate knives from my stash of silver.
Then I started adding cups to the drying rack. I’m not sure my collection is large enough to fill the top two tiers of the rack with 10 different cups. Let’s see.
No, my collection wasn’t quite large enough so I used a blue and white creamer and I am always on the look out for more blue and white cups.
The drying rack sits on my kitchen counter and delights me every time I look at it. I think you would agree this isn’t your Mom’s mug tree.
Collections are always a quick and easy decorating idea the trick is finding a unique way of displaying it. All of the cups and the creamer were thrifted except the fragile looking cup in the foreground of the photo above. It belonged to my Mom.
Please be sure to come back tomorrow when I will have more Quick and Easy Holiday Décor and More. If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the right, so you will never miss a post. Thank you for visiting.
PS World Market still has the three tier glass drying rack available for $14.99. (This is not a sponsored post.)
