Show and Tell Friday



It's Friday and so I'm showing and telling..... Today's favorite thing to show is a small cupboard with some small tea sets. As a child I can remember having a lovely little china tea set and drinking tea from it. It was a bit small for drinking from, I'm guessing if we wanted to do any serious tea drinking we used my sister's set of Roy Rogers tea cups....those were much larger in size. I have no idea what ever happened to either of our tea sets but when I see a set at a sale I remember back to the days of tea parties in the playroom.


A few years ago I purchased this child's cupboard at my Aunt and Uncle's Estate sale. It is about 36" tall and was made for my aunt by her father when she was a little girl. I estimate the cupboard to be about 75 years old and I thought it would be perfect to use to display some tea sets I've been collecting.

Very pretty! My mom has tons of tea sets and my neice just loves to play tea time with her. Your tea set reminds me of that.
