It seems to me that Tea Cup Tuesdays keep coming faster and faster. Time is really flying. Here we are at the third Tuesday in Feb. already. Wasn't it just Christmas a couple of weeks ago.
This week I am again doing something a bit different. I want to share some of my mini tea pots, ones I have collected over the years. These are not "REAL" teapots. You wouldn't get much tea if you used them, but nonetheless I love them.
I have found them in various places but the majority seem to have come from the big Sussex Flea Market in Sussex, New Brunswick. I generally find at least one new one there every year.
To begin I will show a few of the little tea pots that were included in Red Rose Tea in Canada, at least for awhile. I never got any in tea myself and they never seem to have given them in the US tea. There were ones that I came across in Canada, at the flea market I mentioned above.
I personally like them better than the little tea animals they give out now. But of course they never asked me. I am sure there were more. These are just the ones I have found for my collection. These tea pots don't open up. They are about 1 and 1/2 inches tall and about 2 and 1/2 inches wide. I plan to continue searching for more in the future.
The next two little tea pots feature cats which are favorites in this house since we have three cats!
The next two tea pots are "souvenir" type. The one on the left is from Puerto Rico. I found it in Canada but bought it because we lived in Puerto Rico for three years back in the 70s so this seemed like a good souvenir from that time.
And finally I will end this weeks edition with an actual tea cup for tea cup Tuesday. This is a small set, and it is actually a souvenir from Colorado. Probably sold in a gift shop out there. It is awfully cute with a little Pixie, trying to crawl up the side of the cup and forms in the handle.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this part of my collection.
Be sure to shop in next week for more. I have little tea sets I will show off. And maybe another tea cup and saucer. I will be going to an indoor flea market next Saturday so hope to find some more good stuff!!
Mean while be sure to check out the other tea parties this week......................
