Teacups

Next is my collection of teacups. I have only been drinking tea for a few years. My mom always tried to get me to drink it while I was growing up but I didn't like it. I wish I would have tried harder. We could have had some nice tea times.

I brought the teacups back from Canada when I visited 1 1/2 years ago. I wasn't planning on such souvenirs! I was talking to my mom about how much I wanted some teacups and she said, "It's too bad you weren't here about 6 months ago, I went to a yardsale where the lady was selling boxes of them."
I talked her into taking me to the town where the sale was and trying to find the house. I'll do anything for a bargin! We found the street and my mom narrowed it down to two houses. The first one, the lady just looked at me funny when I explaned what I was looking for but pointed me next door. The next house was the right one and the lady was so nice! She invited my sister and I down into her basement and pulled out some boxes full of teacups! My sister helped me pick them out and I got 6 of them for $20.00. $15.00 american!
I had to get another suitcase just to bring them home. :0)

This is a picture of my version of a piesafe. Pie being my favorite dessert, it is only right that I have a piesafe. :) I kept looking on ebay but the prices were way to high for me. I found this hutch at the resale store, painted it, put on vintage glass knobs and Phillip replaced the glass with screen. It is empty right now but I normally having some baked item inside.

Here is where I keep all my letter writing things. I love to write letters so I keep everthing by the kitchen table. Grace and Emily have a couple of penpals they write too also.

Hi Kelli,
I just love your blog! The china is just beautiful! I really enjoy hearing about treasures, such as these, being used and not just stashed away in a cupboard. The teacup collection is wonderful! I really like the story and am so happy that you have the memory of the lady who sold them to you as an added bonus. Your writing cupboard is so nice (and so organzied!).
Hugs,
Flora

Kelli I love the china it is so pretty. I admire your tea cups, in fact,I'm down right jelous! I love the way you have them displayed too. My paternal Grandmother lives just a few miles from Canada, loves tea. It is because of her that Danny & I love to drink hot tea. A Georgia boy drinking hot tea, LOL! I'm coming to Kelli's Tea Room!! Do you have any scones?

Hi Kelli,

I was feeling gloomy and discouraged, but have delighted in looking through your blog - it really cheered and encouraged me.
