I have not been joining Vintage Thingie Thursday much at all for the past couple of years, mostly because I think I've already shown nearly all my vintage thingies.
The other day I realized that what I love MOST about vintage thingies is the tale that goes with them, so I thought I'd "revisit" my vintage thingies and share them with their tale.
If you are a long time VTT player, and if you've already seen all my stuff I apologize in advance for forcing you to re-view them.
It is so fine, the china so thin, that it feels like an egg shell. It is translucent, nearly transparent.
I wondered who had owned it, how many tea parties had it seen, and most of all how it survived intact this long.
There was a set of 12 or so teacups in the case, but I decided to buy just one.
And this little princess of teas came home with me.
I decided to buy - - - she did not, or so I thought.
Until my birthday arrived on December 30th and Eloise, pronounced E-Lois, gave me a gift.
Tucked inside that gift, in a soft bed of fluffy tissue paper, was a sister to my teacup. "I thought you needed TWO" said Eloise, pronounced E-Lois, "I might want to come over and drink a cup of tea with you!"
Well, there's been no tea drinking from the cups as yet - - - instead they are gracing my buffet with their dainty little selves and - - -
Thanks Eloise, pronounced E-Lois, I just love my teacups!
Linking today to Vintage Thingie Thursday
Eloise is a sweet friend!
Wow, you are the queen of eclectic! What a great story. Now following you!
I used to do the "VTT" thing also but ran out of things to post about. I love to collect teacups.
What a special teacup! I love the eggshell porcelain. And how much more special with your thoughtful friends gift. Happy VTT!
That was a good story! I'm following you, too, love my library friends!
Happy Belated Birthday!!
The tea cups are lovely!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
They are so delicate and elegant! Perfect for the little tea lights. I sure love your little family of sheep, too! Stay warm my friend!
What a treasure - your friend, that is. The tea set is gorgeous too.
Keetha (I assume pronounced KEY- THA), she is a wonderful friend..always full of surprises for you! Such pretty cups!
Love those teacups! Beautiful with a tealight in them! hugs, Linda
What a sweet tale indeed! I think you need to invite Eloise, pronounced E-Lois, over for tea sometime soon!
WHY do I have an urge to crush it?! What is wrong with me????
There's some Broyles blood in that girl!
I love the little sheep!
