About Cuppatea and Me



My Belleek collection started with a lovely set inherited from my godmother, then I discovered American Belleek. I've been researching and collecting since 2006 and having a wonderful time. It's always fun to get notes from fellow enthusiasts.


I've enjoyed reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass time and time again, and started collecting books and ornaments and figurines about 30 years ago. It's a small but meaningful collection, with contributions from friends and family.


And while I like coffee, I love all things tea! I grew up in several different countries where tea was the beverage of choice, and have always been attracted to teapots, tea cups and saucers, and creamers and sugars.

In 2006 I started buying and selling on line, and have a small on-line store where you can find collectibles and more. If you are in the mood for a little shopping, see Cuppatique on Etsy for vintage, antique, and handmade items. I've posted some of my American Belleek for sale there, as well as:

      vintage cross stitch and crewel kits

      handmade Christmas stockings upcycled from fabulous purses and other finds

      vintage kitchen and home items

      and more
