Your Opinion Please!

I found these stunning vintage Villeroy and Boch teacups for $1 each in Vinnie's a few weeks ago.


There are 2 different designs...


Even the underside is pretty!


I'm keeping one to go with the Villeroy and Boch plate I picked up for a couple of dollars recently...


But here's where I need your help. I'm thinking of using the rest of them to do this...


What do you think? Would it be a travesty to fill these beautiful vintage cups up with wax or do you think they'd be fab? I think it's a lovely idea :-)

What a cool idea!

I'm all for it and if you don't like it anymore you can always remove the wax and use the cups :)

I think they would look lovely, but I think they could be better used as Dessert dishes. Easy to hold, not too big and oh sooooo pretty.

I say do it! I love re-purposed vintage items. They will look so pretty and you will actually use them! x

Why not? Especially if you added a pretty coloured wax like the last images you've shown. I saw something similar at a market and the effect was stunning. :)

I'm thinking it's a go so!!! Thanks girls. Love the idea of using them for dessert cups too though, might keep a couple for that :-)
