Who says your tea set can't be architecturally interesting? When not in use, I'd be happy to have a good looking stack.

I'm a sucker for stacking tea sets for one. I'm also a sucker for hand-painted animal faces, so this is pretty much the best gift you could ever give me.
Someday, everything in my kitchen will be shaped like an animal, all the while remaining incredibly useful.
Oh thank goodness the bears are here with my tea. I don't know what I'd do without them.
Sorry tower, I have to flip you over to drink my tea. No slight against the French, promise.
How many awesome scenes from Alice in Wonderland can someone pack into one elegant cake? My favorite part is the little cards at the base bent over to be croquet wickets. How obedient?
