A cup of coffee now..

After all my crochet works, I drink a cup of coffee. Actually I drink 5 or 6 cups of coffee in a day. I don't know It is harmful for my heart or not. As I am suffering from hypertansion and cardiac insufficiency, some doctors are saying harmful but some others are saying not so harmful for my heart. But what can I do. I like coffee so so much..
Then I made a cup of coffee for myself. But I really want to show you the coffee cups. These are so ancient traditional fine porcelain cups. They were inherited by my grandmother. These are traditional for drinking some coffee species. These cups are so small but they are used for drinking coffee in Turkey. I like these old cups very much. They remembered me that old but happy times with my grandmother and my grandfather and also my father...

one for me, one for my mother..

How small they are..


  1. What beautiful cups! I collect china cups and tea pots and drink 5-6 (actually more) cups of coffee a day, too. We are birds of a feather!

  2. Beck, the cups are exquisite. Cherish them, as I know you are. I am so happy to see you are using them rather than collecting dust. Coffee tastes so much better in family heirlooms.

  3. So beautiful! What a treat to have your coffee in such treasured cups. Can you buy decaffeinated coffee in Turkey? My husband and I have gone to that and it's much better for us.

  4. Those cups are a real treasure, not only because they are so stunning but also for their rich history and the memories they posses. Something to be proud of.

  5. Thank you for all friends. These cups make me happy because I remember some of my family members that they are not alive now... But all happy memories are living with these old things maybe. It is a very good idea that I must find decaffeinated coffee Dear kristen. Maybe some big marketplaces I can find. Really thank you. I ll lookfor it tomorrow morning...

  6. oh my.....those are the most beautiful cups....What a treasure for you to have them....I like to think of the hands that have held them...
    If that is the size coffee cup you are using they are small cups...one of my coffee cups is about equal to three of yours....so maybe you are not drinking as much as you think??? You can also do half caffeine and half no caffeine.
    and thank you yes I love my 9 kitties....sometimes it is a challenge!!! when they all want to eat at the same time!!
    Happy Day to you!
