I love the tea sets. My younger sister has many of these that she has bought for her granddaughters. I remember have them as a child and they were so much fun.

Candy said...

A little girls dream. To play with tiny tea sets.
And of course, I can't wait to see what you are doing with the Business cards and sample chips.

See ya tomorrow,

Your tea sets are just adorable, Barbara Jean. I have always loved the Precious Moments pieces. It seems they have been around forever. And I didn't know they had a tea set(s)! So cute!

I really like your formal set! The flowers are so pretty!

Formica tags! I remember having a large assortment many years ago when I was trying to pick out a counter. I was so confused by all the choices!!

Have a wonderful week, Barbara Jean!! :-)

Your tea sets are adorable. You are a stinker to save what you are making for a later post. Of course I do the same thing, and did on today's post too. So I guess that makes me a stinker as well. I also plan to share what I made in Wednesday's post as too. I will need to remember to come visit you tomorrow.

When the construction is finished in my yard, I've got all these ideas in my head for decorating it. I've thought of getting little tea sets like that and hanging the individual pieces in the trees as ornaments. Love these little sets!

Cute tea sets! I had a china one when I was little -- my mom gave it away to a "deserving" child when I was in high school -- she had a tendency to do that, so I have almost none of my old childhood toys!

But I used my own daughters as an excuse to collect more little tea sets, and I have my mother-in-laws lustreware one from the 30s.

Cass -- very curious about your project!

I have several tiny tea sets I keep around the house and some holiday ones that only come out on those days. I just cant resist those tiny thngs!

Kim said...

I have a collection of mini tea sets. But most of them are packed away in the attic. I have no idea where in the attic though. Hopefully someday I'll open a box & find them. Thanks for sharing yours.

Gypsy aka Tam said...

Happy Three Or More Tuesday!!!
Your mini teasets are so sweet and they certainly bring back memories. Hmmm, I may need to look for some of those just because I'd like to be prepared for when I become a grandma some day *smile*.
Have a wonderful evening,

Kathleen said...

Such cute tea sets..and I wonder how you made those business cards out of formica samples..:)

Beverly said...

Your teas sets are so pretty and delicate. I have one that is a red pepper.

I can't wait to see what you create.
