Teapot and teacups

Hi to everyone visiting 'Tea Things Tuesdays' at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/.

Thanks to Kim for hosting this and be sure to check out everyone and all their 'tea' treasures!

This was my Mom's tea set, she had gotten it from the Ukraine when she went for a tour. It was still the USSR and she said it was very hard to buy anything there at that time. She managed to get six teacups and saucers and six teapots all for less then $20 US.......at some village bazzar that they were at. When my Mom passed on I inherited the whole set, I display them in my kitchen cupboards which have clear glass fronts.

Santa waitng for a nice warm cup of tea. I think that he's ring his bell for all his elves to come. :-)

This teapot is below my chandelier which has the Christmas ornaments hanging off it.

Santa is still ringing his bell for his elves to take a break and have a cup of tea. :-)

This Santa has baked some gingerbread cookies for his cup of tea.

This label was on the back of the saucer, I haven't got a clue what it stands for but probably some numbers the maker used for his own records.

Now I think that I'm ready for a cup of tea myself.

Thank you very much for stopping by and please do leave a comment I love to hear from you.
Be sure and visit the other Tea participants.

  5. Hi Erica,

  6. Hi Erica,
    I'm back! My youngest son attends U of T, studying for his PhD in Math. He loves Toronto! I haven't been there yet but from what he tells me, it sounds like a wonderful city full of museums and every food you can inagine. I would love to visit someday and hear a live symphony! That would be my thrill! So glad you stopped by and I have become a Follower of yours. It's nice for we Canadians to stick together. Have a lovely day.
