Denise, a tea friend living in England, recently showed a photo of storing teacups and saucers.
The first time I saw this method was on my first trip to England in 1995.
The funny thing is I can tell you exactly where I was when I saw this method, but couldn't remember exactly how it was done. Since then, I've been laying teacups on their side sort of snuggled together, but just didn't get it correctly.
Thanks Denise for sharing this method in a photo.
The teacups above were the last gift purchased for me by my dear Aunt Ida.
They are not valuable in price, but are priceless in sentimental value.
