Another mini tea party



 I am happy to report that once again the snow is almost gone.  It should be fairly warm this week to get rid of the rest of it and then maybe I can really think Spring!  I have noticed my bulbs are peeking up.  Normally, at this time of year they are already almost ready to bloom.  Oh well, we WILL enjoy them when they are here!

This is my third post in the past four weeks that talks about mini's.  I do love them. These are sets I have in my shop, or have had.  They do sell fairly often.  I probably have a few more but I think this is it for now.

This first set is the traditional Blue Willow pattern, my personal favorite.  We use Blue Willow (made by Churchill) here at my house everyday.   This set was probably made in China though it doesn't say.  And I am pretty sure it is fairly new, maybe 15 years or so.  

 This second little set also didn't say who made it but also probably made in China.  I turned the cup on its side so you could more easily see the pattern.  But I also wanted you to be able to see tops of cups and saucers.



This third little set is one of the Resin sets that are being sold in lots of places.  Here is the picture of the set as it is placed on its tray.  And I found this cute little girl out in the shop to oversea the tea party.  She is an older one from Japan.

 This second picture shows all the pieces set about with the tray in the back.  I thought it was neat that the tray is a Gazebo.  What a great place that would be for a tea party in real life.  The little girl looks quite pleased with it all.

       
I hope you will also visit the other tea parties that are going on around the web today and tomorrow.
  And come back and see me next week.  You never know what I will have to show you.

Here is the list of tea parties I will be joining.
