Yay! It's time for Show & Tell Friday which is so graciously hosted by Kelli @ There is no place like home. Be sure to pay her a visit and see who else is "showing" today!
Today I'm sharing the second shelf of my china cabinet. I've always loved this set of tea cups and saucers. There isn't much I can say about it except that it came from a great aunt. I can remember my mother sipping her coffee in them and she'd let me sip my hot cocoa from them from time to time.
If our neighbor, Miss Shiela happened to come by, an afternoon tea was served and mom would use this set sometimes. Miss Shiela would never sip out of a regular mug as she was a prim and proper English lady. It was she who showed me "how" to "take" tea...with a bit of sugar a dollop of cream. I still enjoy it this way to this day.
The crystal pieces are from Princess house and I inherited them when mom passed. The tea pot is mine and I've had it for about ten years now. The plate behind the crystal tea pot was found at the thrift store. I paid fifty cents for it.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope your day will be great!
