Sit Down and Have a cUPpa

“Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.” – Letitia Baldridge

Put your feet up … sit down … and have a cuppa. This is I inviting you to join me…Do you use that term too in your country?

Cuppa is a Slang contraction of “cup of”, believed to be Irish in origin. Meaning to have a cup of whatever the person offering is drinking, not necessarily tea, or coffee. ” …

These are some great find in Hope Street Space which is a shop of curios located in Brunswick, Melbourne.

      Thanks Margaret.

    They are wonderful to look at. Usually though, the pots drip and the cups just don’t feel nice against the lips. Sorry, I’m a cranky realist 😉

    1. Teresa says:

      I guess they are just better as decoration.

  8. ladysighs says:

    Tea always tastes better in a fancy cup and of course sitting down.
    It seems I always drink my coffee on the run.

    1. Teresa says:

      Oh that’s good if you have the time to appreciate your coffee or tea. Maybe next time.

  9. Those teapots would be cute on the table whether I used them or not! I’ve always wondered about that term “cuppa”. We don’t use it here in the States, but I think it’s neat.

    1. Teresa says:

      Yes, sort of a casual term of invitation.

    We have a ‘cuppa’ in our household. British roots.

    1. Teresa says:

      Yes, that is right! Influence of the ‘Queen’.
