Did you know that the things you collect can reveal so much about you? We can learn a lot about a person based on what he or she looks for, takes care of, and proudly displays around the home. For some homeowners, it can be books, figurines, and plants!

In the case of Real Living reader Bacel So, she cannot get enough of sweet and dainty teacups. Here are the tea sets from her impressive collection that we absolutely love:

Display Case

It is so satisfying to see the things that matter to you all in one place! If you would like to show off your personal collection, you should consider having a display case built!

For this collection, Bacel selected an ornate white frame to match the sweet feel of the floral plates and tea cups inside

One for Every Month

Since tea sets can be rather expensive, it feels so luxurious to own one tea set for every month of the year! Imagine having a different tea set to look forward to every month!

For this month, Bacel can use this "September" tea cup with matching plates

Blue and Gold

We chose this tea set because of the unique colors! Since most tea sets have pastel colors on a white background, it is always refreshing to find one that has regal blue and gold shades.

Birds in the Forest

Most tea sets feature images of flowers, and this tea set is no exception. However, this one still stands out because it has a unique detail: an image of a bird with bright-hued feathers!

Pink and Yellow Roses

This tea set has a simple, traditional pattern of pink and yellow roses. Gold gilding makes the tea pot, cups, saucers, and tray even more special.

Vibrant Colors

When compared to the hues of the other tea sets in this Quezon City home, this floral pattern seems especially bright and vivid

Watercolor Brushstrokes

We think that the watercolor pattern of this tea set looks fun and playful! The unexpected print certainly looks charming.

Classic Blue and White

One corner of this Quezon City home is adorned with precious finds that have traditional colors and prints.

Skirt-Like Teapots

These quirky pink and yellow teapots are meant to resemble ladies wearing voluminous dresses

Unique Shapes

Compared to most teapots, this particular one has a wider mouth and a sharp, D-shaped handle. The matching teacup also has a wider mouth and a D-shaped handle. The prints are also different from those that you usually find on other pieces.
