Vintage Tea Time Treasures

I had a great time last Friday on a jaunt to one of my favorite places to hunt for vintage tea treasures--McKinney, TX. I went with a new friend and we spent hours going from one antique mall to another. Just look at some of the pretties I found! By the way, they are now listed on my website...

From Sweden...From Germany...

From Austria...Limoges

I feel like I have been around the world!

You found some very beautiful things. Wow! Sounds like the two of you had a ball. It's so much fun to spend time with friends. Thanks for sharing your treasures.

I am so glad you have a new playmate to help you find items for your show and tell, lol. Your site is always a beauty. And someone is going to win a beautiful basket this Spring Bingo Season. woohoo
Have a blessed day,

Hi Karen,

What lovely tea cups you have! As a tea drinker myself, I love tea cups. I must own one of your pink ones someday! :)

I love your house, a true Victorian!
I have a suburbian replica LOl. It is big and blue. I love the doll house in the entry. I recently moved a vintage secretary into my entry and am filling it with dolls and such. I have a day care so I thought this was appropriate. I am hoping to leave it this way( I change everything). I also wanted to put a blue victorian dollhouse in the entry. There is a few pre-made at a local shop. I love that yours looks like your home and you made it too!!!! This makes me want that doll house even more. I am so glad I found your blog.

Karen, stop torturing us with all this chatter about antique shops and going out with the girls! I'm so jealous. lol

Tomorrow night I hit an auction. I can't wait. I'm going to go early and see if there is anything I HAVE TO HAVE. If not, home again to save my pennies.
