My Tea Set

My parents have been redoing their office and, in the process, had to take everything out and organize it. This treasure manifest itself during the reorganizing. This is the tea set my Opa and Oma gave me when I was little. It holds a lot of memories of filling those little cups up with water and then spilling the little cups full of water on the carpet. I am pretty proud that every piece is still in the box and intact. I have never really been in to keeping things for my future children, but this...this changes the game completely. Also, there is a little bee flying right above the girl's head. Perfect, or what?

  5. I have a really large and unhealthy tea set collection. For some reason, when I'm in an Anthropologie store, I somehow buy another set instead of a sweater, skirt, or jacket. There is something about using real and decorative plates (instead of paper) that makes a meal that much more enjoyable. I hope to pass down what my dinnerware to my children so that they will have memories attached to them just like you do.

  6. This is so tender. I was recently reunited with my childhood tea set (also given by grandparents), but I had broken one of the little plates when I was a little girl. Still devastated about it.

  7. awwwwwwwwww,
    such a sweet little tea set!
    I know what you mean about saving things for your future children; mostly it seems like dragging your stuff from house to house for not real reason....but this? so worth it.

  8. I remember playing with these little tea sets! I think I had one with dalmatians, and it was most definitely made in China and not Germany.

  13. this is the perfect little set for you, miss bee. last night in the car robbie and i were talking about tea parties…when i was a kid, i collected old tea pots (everyone knew to get them to me for birthdays & things) -- but somewhere in, like, the bazillion times we moved when i was a kid, they all got lost. : /

    …can you & mandi & i have a tea party soon?

  14. I had one just like this when I was little! Only my little girl had brown hair, which made me ridiculously happy because "she looked like me."

    I wish I knew where mine is - probably broken and in the basement of my parents house.
