Cassandra’s Cup, Chawton, Hampshire

Cassandra's Cup Tea Room Chawton England

This is a picture of the ceiling at Cassandra’s Cup in Chawton, Hampshire, England. I haven’t been there (yet!) but their website says they are a “small tradional tearooms situated in the beautiful village of Chawton, opposite Jane Austen’s house”.

There are so many lovely Jane Austen tea connections – but they shall have to wait for another day, another post.

I would love to do this hanging teacups thing in my kitchen.  Which would necessitate the start of a new collection of teacups.

Oh. Drat.

  1. I cannot pass up a pretty teacup! I also find that I buy pretty little bone china plates that are made in England. I have made a tiered plate for tea sandwiches or cookies made of bone china with pretty candlesticks in between the plates. It’s pink and flowery and oh-so-pretty! I shall watch for your blog posting about Jane Austen teacups!

    • Dear Karen, I get weak in the knees at the sight of a pretty teacup. Which means my knees are usually very wobbly!! Was it difficult to make that tiered server? I’ve seen some lovely pictures of them on Pinterest.

      • Not difficult at all once I found the proper adhesive. I wash and dry the pieces well. Stack them to make sure I like the look of the pieces together then glue them using a caulk gun and a tube of Silicone II which is for sealing windows and glass. Leave the finished piece for several days and don’t touch it. I don’t immerse it to wash it but rather just rinse it. I’m always afraid of it falling apart! I’ll post a pic on Twitter of one that I made so you can see it.

  2. it’s the cleaning that would drive me crazy !
