Sunday Favorites - Measuring Cups

 Sunday Favorites over at Chari's Place, Happy to Design. I hope you enjoy this favorite from November 30, 2008. Wow! I've been blogging quite a while now.


 I was going back through the archives of one of my favorite blogs, Joanna Goddard's, A Cup of Jo. And I saw these cute measuring cups...

I thought to myself, “Self…would there perhaps be other cute measuring cups on the worldwide web?” And there were, lots of them.

I like the look of these because they stack, but they're pretty. And they would probably wash up really well, not like plastic. I would definitely like these in my kitchen.
And I would also be super happy to have either one of these in my kitchen. I think they're so fanciful and almost like what I would have wanted when I was a little girl, and we should never lose our inner child should we?
This one I want sooooooooo bad for my sister. She likes anything to do with the ocean and she would love these seashell measuring cups. Maybe I'll order them for her birthday? It's not til next year in October. Surely by then I can save enough money?

And these next ones would be perfect for my mom's kitchen because she has very limited space and doesn't like anything that takes up a lot of room. So collapsible measuring cups would be perfect for her.
On this next group the only ones I really love are the magnetic ones that attach directly to your stove. These others are very pretty, especially because you can hang them and they're so decorative, but to me their cold, there's no warmth to them. What do you think?

The rest of these I just thought were unique and you can probably only find these in antique stores, or perhaps eBay?

And these would be great in you want to get kids involved in cooking because they're such fun shapes and colors. It would be really hard to lose these don't you think?

Do you remember what kind of measuring cups your mom had in the kitchen when you were growing up?


  1. Cute cute cute! I've often looked at measuring cups in kitchen shops. I just don't have extra room for them at this point. They are adorable though.

  2. Those are some unusual and unique measuring cups. I would just display them and not use them.

  3. Such unusual and fabulous measuring cups and spoons. Love them all. Great post. Hugs, Marty

  4. Who'd a thought I could have something more then my silver cups....booooring...need to get me some of those giraffe ones:)

  5. those are so cute Alicia...seashells are my fave!
    thanks for dropping by my blog...also i'd like to invite you to join my first summer giveaway! here's the link:

  6. A few of those look really hard to clean. I like the giraffes but don't think they are practical.
    My mother was a great cook and baker but she never used measuring cups. Just any mug or spoon that she had on hand. She did it by eye.
    I don't measure when I cook regular foods, only when I bake.

  7. What neat measuring cups! Fun!

    My Mom had a graduated set of aluminum ones, and my Dad has them now in his assisted living apartment; they are as shiny as they day Mom got them more than 65 years ago, although a little dented here and there.

    I have several sets of cups but I'm afraid mine are relentlessly practical and dull!


  8. Aw ... I love them ALL. I think I'm going shopping today, and see what I can find. :-)

  9. What a fun collection of measuring comes to show! I love to see the different and fun styles.

  10. I love the giraffes!!! Hey, is this your first Iwanna???? So reminds me of it:O)

  11. Some of those are just adorable...and others would simply be dust magnets. I like the...bee hive, is it? They stack upside down so they'd stay clean.

    They're all cool, though!

  12. Hi Alicia...

    Girlfriend...all of these measuring cups are just too cute! I wanna...too!!! I really want a set of the pretty measuring cups that look just like those!!! I'm just sitting here thinking about the plain...clear plastic set that I have...ooooh, I really wanna some!!!

    What a great post, Alicia...thank you so much for sharing it with us today for Sunday Favorites!!!

    I hope that you're having a super Sunday, Darlin'!
