Matchy Tea Party….


Can you even see it? 

018So funny how “matchy matchy” this set is!  It even matches the toile tablecloth.

I purchased this set as when my girls were little – it is a set we used to have tea parties……such fun memories for them and me!

They would get dressed up in their glittered dresses, cinderella high healed shoes with a  missing diamond clip their plastic shoes, fluffy boa’s wrapped around their little necks & last years easter hats upon their little heads…025they would apply uneven lipstick of course & load up their little tea cups with cubes and cubes of sugar…

Tracie,
Love your blog. Thank you for visiting mine. It's always so much fun to start from scratch and pick everything out. My husband says I have "gypsy blood" because I love to move, but I think I just love to redecorate. Your home looks so cozy and warm.
Happy White Wednesday,
ShawNa

Sounds like great fun - we all remember things like that from childhood - my grandmother had a cup with a frog in the bottom - its eyes emerged from the tea as you drank - i loved that cup
