Tea Set in Curio

Bottom of Saucer

Did you notice the red insignia writing? 

"Made in Occupied Japan"

It was stamped the same on the tea cup as well.

I wonder did Daddy get this serving in WW2 for Mom?

It was never explained where it came from. It was one of Mom's showcased pieces she kept ever since I can remember. 

This is my all time favorite. I actually snuck and played with this set. My Doll babies and stuffed animals were always my guests.

There were two. Mom kept them in a back room with built in shelving, where the encyclopedias were kept. 

As a little girl. I was fascinated with tea cups. My obsession has turned into a hobby now. 

I have made this a Heirloom.

What is different now, I purchased Pudding, my Granddaughter her very own. We've had a few tea parties. I taught her Etiquette. She asked many questions. Do you hold your pinkie out while sipping tea?  Is this how you stir your cream? 

Of course; I giggled.  I had two boys who weren't interested in Tea Parties. They would rather play with cars and swords. So it's nice to have a new start with a little girl who amuses her Grandma. Thanks Pudding!

Her favorite part was washing her set and storing it away for another day.  I can't remember what happened to my own plastic tea set. I'm sure I out grew it and somewhere a long time it was pitched.

My Love for Tea Cups
 on Pinterest

This is a relaxing way for me to dream a little and have as many tea cups as I want. I PIN for quiet time. 
It's my private time for winding down for the night. So I hope you are able to go to my Little Collection that I so love to PIN and Enjoy.
