This sake set is from Daiso, cost a total of 8 dollars for all 5 pieces! The origami crane chopstick rests were a birthday gift from my roomie! (I believe she picked them up at World Market)

A pieced together tea set. Each item was discovered at various flea markets, garage sales, and discount stores. I love that nothing matches and each cup and sugar bowl reminds me of a different treasure hunt for the perfectly imperfect tea set.
I know this may seem tacky, but I love receiving mugs as gifts and souvenirs because they have a practical function! And I don't mind serving guests mismatched mugs because it adds a touch of fun and whimsy ("Which mug did you get? I got the one from the hawaiian pancake house!"). If mismatched mugs aren't you're cup of coffee (haha!) use them to store pencils/pens on your desk instead.

I know it may seem strange to some but lately I have been coveting dishes the way I covet shoes. I collected quite a few dish sets over the years and they are taking over my house as "decoration" every where, my bookshelf is FILLED with dishes. Crazy, no?!
