Teapots and Teacups ~

Hello Everyone,
I hope you enjoyed your Christmas weekend!  Today, I'm sharing photos of my niece's collection of teapots and teacups. As some of you may recall, the women in my family gathered at her home a couple of weeks ago for our annual "Girls Only Holiday Party." For those who missed it, that post can be found HERE. Just like her Aunt, my niece enjoys collecting pretty tea things, especially exploring thrift stores and antique shops for that "special find."  So, of course, I had to take photos to share with you!  I have several nieces who enjoy drinking tea, including my 9-year-old grandniece, Chloe. Humm...it must run in the family!

This is an "Alice in Wonderland" tea set - really darling!

More...



I hope you've enjoyed this wee look at part of my niece's collection!
Until next time,
Cindy

Seems really odd to be saying hi to another Cindy Adkins. Hi Cindy, nice to meet you I know your a good friend to the other Cindy Adkins. This is making me dizzy.
You gotta be a good one with a name like that.

there is something really quaint about old teapots and teacups. Quite an array to be chosen too from the stores of today as well.

Oh, I especialy love the Alice in Wonderland tea set. It's totally delightful.

I think the little girls in our families learn to love tea and tea things because it's been a part of their lives since they were little...at least that's how it is for my daughter and several of her friends. I have been into tea since my daughter was just a wee thing...the same with her friends' moms...so the girls have grown up experiencing the beauty and serenity of teatime.

Have a wonderful day.

Love,
Patti
