Matching Tea for One Show and Tell Friday

Birthday Party in a Bag 001[3]The end of the month is approaching.  Check out my Birthday in a Bag Give Away post.  All comments earn an entry for a Birthday in a Bag from me, to celebrate my 40th Birthday. 

I love Show and Tell Fridays. It’s so fun to see everyone’s special treasures.  The link party is at My Romantic Home so stop by and see all the blogs that are linked up today.


Last weekend, my friends from church and I were able to spend some time at the Ruffles and Rust Antique Sale.  I love this sale because everyone does such a great job displaying all their beautiful and fun items.  Some things are homemade and others are one-of-a-kind collectibles.  Check out the Come Junk With Us blog and see all the fun.


So on to my Show and Tell…

Isn’t this a beautiful Tea-for-One?  I almost got through the entire sale without finding anything I really “needed” to take home.  I have so much stuff as it is, I try to be very considerate of what I add to my collection.  When I saw this teapot, I knew it was just what I was looking for.

I already had the rest of the set!  I found this set at an at-home tea party sale.  I didn’t consider buying it at that time but I mention I really liked it.  My husband clued in to that thought and bought it for me for that Christmas.  I love this tea set!  There is something about the magnolia flowers of which I am particularly fond.

This tea set has no markings as to the manufacturer or anything about it.  I am sure it is made in China.  There is probably nothing of real value in this set, aside from the beauty and my partiality to it.

When I have to simplify my life to just the stuff I can fit on my boat, I hope to still have this tea-for-one.

What a beauty Beth. You'd be surprised what fits on that lived in an RV for 5 years and I sure did bring along a lot more than you would have thought. This was a very pretty post.

It is so fun to find just the right thing to take home with you on a special trip. It was nice to read about your husbands thoughtful purchase for year. Beautiful tea set.

Hi Beth, your tea set is so pretty. I love it too and would have enjoyed it very much. Your hubs is a keeper for being so thoughtful. Lucky you to find the matching teapot for one.

Thank you for your visit.
Hugs, Jeanne
