Thanks for visiting me! And for inviting me to visit you! I love your tea sets, especially the children's set. I had a tiny one when I was a child, but in all our moving it was lost. I've been sad about that ever since! My husband bought one similar and gave it to me a few years ago! Thanks for inviting us into your lovely home!

Carrie said...

Your tea sets are lovely. I also especially enjoy the Bavarian set.

Alisa said...

I just adore your collection of children's tea sets. Thank you for sharing!

Miss Sandy said...

Your tea items are beautiful! My favorite is the tiny cup with the hand painted birds nest on it! I have the very same children's dresser! Mine is missing the top drawer but a pretty vintage linen covers it, I never thought to display a tiny tea set on it! May I borrow your idea? Lovely post!

Sweet Necessi-Teas said...

Miss Sandy, please feel free to use my idea! I love my little dresser. I have had it since I was about 4.

I saw one just like it in an article in a magazine several years ago--I think it was Home Companion. I have never seen another one...

Pam said...

All so beautiful!! I think my favorite is also your hand painted Bavarian set!

Everything is lovely, but I especially like the tea cart with everything set up for tea. It's obvious that you are ready to provide tea at a moment's notice. This certainly speaks a lot about your sense of hospitality. I hope friends visit you often. Old Country Roses is one of my favorite patterns.

Rue said...

I LOVE your tea things! I only have a few, but your post has helped me live vicariously until God provides the money for a tea service.
