The week sure went by quickly! Here we are ready to celebrate Tea Time Thursday once again.
I purchased this old book when I was on my trip out east. I just loved the cover! It is not in very good condition, but it makes for a great backdrop and I just love the graphics. It has a publisher date of 1900. Like a lot of children's books from that time, it is composed of short stories that have a message for children, encouraging them to be good children.
Jimmy found me this sweet little boxed china set from Germany. I just love this look and want to rescue every set I find. Oh oh....
I found this sweet little silverware place setting at a doll show. It is still in it's little box and features a knife, fork and spoon plus a napkin ring holder with a napkin and a knife rest. It's dolly sized but not miniature.
Last weekend I found another sweet vintage pair of children's gloves. I adore these gloves from the past. I was doing a bit of research about gloves and tea. If you wear gloves to tea, etiquette instructs you to remove them and put your napkin over them on your lap. Who knew? I was also surprised to find that you can still buy children's gloves. I do remember getting a new pair at Easter for my new Easter outfit.
This boxed note set seemed to be calling to join the party today! It's a lovely set of invitations for a children's party. I think there's about 8 different designs.
Just a little Tea Time Thursday presentation today. It's been pouring rain...time for a cup of tea. The changing weather means hot tea for sure! I am going to have a cup of vanilla caramel today. Happy almost fall.
