Many people — regardless of age, gender, and lifestyle — love to collect things! Some children look for stickers and toys, while those of us who are a little older keep items like caps, clothes, bags, and shoes. First-time homeowners, newlywed couples, and other home decor enthusiasts also appreciate beautiful belongings to display and to treasure.

Here are 12 tea sets (and other covet-worthy finds) in homeowner Lorena Serapio's 50sqm house in Bulacan:

Now that the rainy season is in full swing, we all need a cup or two of tea to cheer us up! To brighten up your day even more, you should choose yellow tea cups like these Royal Albert Primulette, Primrose and Tea Rose tea sets.

If you are looking for a classic yet playful color combination, you may want to consider red, white, and blue. Need a little convincing? Just look at how charming Lorena's blue-and-white Italian set appears against her red striped placemat

The Lomonosov Imperial Porcelain tea set is special to the homeowner because it was a gift from one of her "teacup sisters." She adds that it is also the most expensive set in her collection.

Some of Lorena's favorite blue-and-white pieces are proudly displayed in this corner. If you look closely, you will see the first set that she has ever purchased through Instagram! Hint: it's the teacup and saucer next to the blue clogs!

This Royal Albert Old Country Rose tea set is a must-have for teacup collectors! This particular set will turn everyday tea time into a special event to look forward to.

Compared to the other traditional pieces in Lorena's collection, this Narumi Milano tea set has a more playful pattern! We love the refreshing appeal of the blue-and-white print.

We were also smitten by the lovely colors and delicate details on these precious pieces.

Since most of Lorena's favorite tea sets have blue-and-white shades, it's refreshing to see these pink and red flowers. These pieces include her Royal Albert Old English Rose, Rose Basket and American Beauty tea sets.

On the days when Lorena wants to feel like British royalty or simply bask in the beauty of traditional English gardens, she can use the Royal Albert Kentish Rockery tea set. This tea set was inspired by Kent, the Garden of England

Lorena proudly displays her tea set collection alongside her cute owl pieces and small potted plants.

More blue-and-white sets are placed on the sewing machine used as a console table!

The rest of her blue-and-white tea sets are kept in a wooden cabinet near the dining area.
