Parties are so much fun, aren’t they? And that includes the many special blog parties online. I just heard about a very special annual Mad Tea Party that is going on right now. I popped over to take a visit and oh my, what a delight! I thought, “I want to add to this fun party – but how?” And then I remembered two delightful treasures from my past. “Perfect!” thinks I.
Would you believe the little saucer above was from a tea set I had when I was just a wee little girl. Guess that makes us both antiques. Sadly, it is one of only two or three pieces that survived my childhood. (Though considering that I’ve had a good case of the “drop-seys” since very young, it’s a bit of a miracle that anything survived!)
This lovely tea cup was from the sister of my beloved grandmother. What a treasure to enjoy a warm and blissful cup of tea while sitting in the gracious old home it now can be found at. Sitting at the dining room table in the large and lovely formal dining room, I can take a sip and look outside at the lovely shade trees, occasionally spotting a deer and its babies passing by. Talk about afternoon bliss! That’s definitely one of the great things about living in the city but being right next door to the country and we do appreciate it!
I hope you enjoyed this little mini-tea party – it’s not a bit mad, just a sweet delight full of fun memories of days long gone by along with appreciating the lovely new memories that have been created in this delightful and historic old home.
And don’t forget to visit A Fanciful Twist and enjoy an absolutely GORGEOUS and delightfully mad tea party full of the most amazing treats and treasures.
