This beautiful birds teacup and saucer is just £2.99 from Dunelm Mill. How sweet it is and such a bargain! Pretty teacups can be bought on Etsy and eBay too and of course the charity shop and car boot sales are always worthy of a visit.
I like to drink my tea in them but really there are so many things you can do with these beauties.
