Vintage Tea Set for Vintage Thingies Thursday


Another Thursday to share our treasures. My home is full of treasures of my family, from pictures to letters. Vintage glass, china , plagues proclaiming their belief in God to a Guardian Angel watching over us.

Today for Vintage Thursday Thingies I am sharing a tea set that belong to my mama when she was a child. One year at Christmas she gave this to me as my gift. How I treasure it and have it sitting out on a shelf so I can see it daily.

Mama was born February 1922 so this tea set is probably from the late 1920's

I hope that you enjoy seeing this treasure of mine.. have a great day.

  1. I love the colors and design of your tea set. I am impressed by the sifter. That is something I would not expect to find with a tea set. I think I would collect sifters if I had room for them.

  5. It always amazes me when something from so long ago manages to be passed along. Particularly playthings. Someone really has to love it to keep it around long after they outgrow it.

  8. Oh I enjoyed enlarging this picture to see this sweet little tea set. I LOVE that it was obviously used by a little girl, and how precious a keepsake it is.
    My Mom was born in March 1921; she might have played with a similar set. Treasure all those heirlooms.

    YOU HAVE 13 GRANDKIDS? I am SO jealous. My tally? ZIP. I need to light a fire under my girls.... Happy Halloween!

  14. thanks for stopping by. yes it is a true treasure. I looked forward to christmas and a new treasure. I think she would of rather had the money to buy us something but these were more valuable and I tried to tell that to her often.
