Looking for fancy tea cup recommendations:

I'd like something that's either understated (traditional, white porcelain), but outstanding quality. Or a little more elegant: 1, 2. (These are pretty ideal, but I don't think the manufacturer ships to the US.) Any recommendations? Thanks!

I want seven swans a-swimming.... in tea

I received this swan teapot for Christmas 2011. Now I'm on a mission to turn it into a tea set by buying a tea tray, sugar bowl, creamer and half a dozen cups and saucers that go with it. And I also need to learn to make tea properly, as opposed to thowing a tea bag in hot water, Canadian-style. I think my best bet for getting a swan tea tray is to keep an eye out for a secondhand wooden tray I can paint with a swan motif, but I haven't found the other items yet. Super Shoppers of MeFi, what items can you suggest that will be perfect for my swan tea set?

What was this musical cups game I played in the 80s?

Are there cup holders on the International Space Station?

Okay, here's an odd question that's been making me think...

Does the ISS have cup holders? If so, are they the huge ones that fit Double Gulps? If not, are they specially designed to fit some sort of "Space Cup"?

If not, do they have to hold their drinks the entire time?
