Afternoon Tea, anyone?

In days gone by, when a woman wanted to have a tea party, she might not have enough teacup and saucer sets for all her guests. As a result, it was not uncommon for a guest to be asked to bring her own teacup and saucer--often carrying her treasure in a beautiful case for protection.

This sweet tea cup tote, done up in two coordinating Afternoon Tea prints from RJR, is a wonderful way to take your favorite tea cup and saucer to your next tea party. Two layers of high loft quilt batting offer protection from breakage. A padded plate liner keeps the cup and saucer separated. Fully lined. Reinforced bottom provides support and further protection. Venitian lace, pearl braid trim and a hand-crafted ceramic rose button add a touch of romance. A drawstring closes the tote and provides a handle to carry your precious cargo. Holds a 6” saucer and tea cup. (Tea cup and saucer shown for display only and are not included.) An added bonus is a lovely coordinating, lace-trimmed napkin. No tea parties in the near future? It could also be used as a purse! Too sweet! Dimensions: 6 ½”w x 7”h

Directions for use: Insert saucer. Place padded liner on top of saucer. Place tea cup right side up on top of liner. Pull drawstring to close. Enjoy!

A Sweet Necessi-Teas original design!

what a great idea to protect those precious teacups & saucers. Sadly, nowadays, most people only have mugs :o(
