Sharing my Tea Sets...

Sharing a few of my favorite Tea Sets....
This is part of a set of china that I inherited from my beloved grandmother, who passed away on Valentines Day 2006, at the age of 93. She was a precious, dear soul and her love of "junkin'," bargain hunting, and creativity transcended the generations. She found this, who knows how many years while yardsale'ing! (Lochs of Scotland, Loch Leven, Royal Warlick)

It is one of my most cherished belongings! :)

Part of my Noritake Azalea China...."How befitting of the South!"
I have collected over eight place settings, many bowls, platters, and other extras, but have not found a Tea Pot yet!

This is a tea cart my dad, ("my junkin' buddy"), found at an auction!
The tea set was a birthday present from my mother-in-law several years ago, by I. Godinger & Co.

"What a neat idea!"
This is a Silver Tea Pot Wind Chime that I found at a state fairgrounds flea market. The craftsman was onsite and it was hard to choose just one! I still have not found the perfect spot for it to hang outside!
Enjoy ~ ....Rhonda

Hi Rhonda,

What beautiful tea things you shared. So many of the pieces you shared were lovingly given to you by someone you love, that that makes them even more special.

Thank you for joining in the Gracious Hospitality tea blog-a-thon! I'm really glad you did!

Love your collections! I enjoyed the photo of the tea cart with the display and also the tea windchime. We have one hanging in our garden, it's more of a tea kettle, and I just love it! Thanks for sharing. Nancy

I never thought it could be possible. I own about 7-9 hair straighteners from cheap to deluxe. Not one of them could

penetrate my thick, curly hair enough to do anything other than heat up the cuticle and make sizzling noises. This iron is going to change my life. I spent 700 on ionic straightening, and this iron works

better!!!! If you spend any amount of time wielding a heavy blow dryer, forget about it. I used this iron on Air-dried, curly hair. I wish I could upload a digital photo- I look like a hair commercial.

Unbelievable but true!!! I LOVE IT!!!
