Tea for Two

Here's one I prepared earlier...


This 1950s Japanese lustreware children's tea set was boot fair find when we were in Lincoln at Easter. I couldn't resist the adorable motif, with hand painted colours. It was supposed to be to sell, but I couldn't bear to part with it so it's now on display. When I have my own house I would love to have a display shelf of vintage toys. I've always loved miniature things, and when I'm out boot-fairing I keep seeing all these fantastic vintage toys - just this week I saw a toy sewing machine, toy weighing scales and an adorable toy shop till! I've even seen a miniature washing machine before - and it actually worked!



The stacked teacups graphic can be found on notecards from FierceMally.
