Tea for you and your dolly, anyone?
Today is Blue Monday (visit Smiling Sally by clicking on the Blue Jay logo on the right to see what Blue Monday is all about and who else is participating) and for this week's Blue post, I am inviting everyone and their dolly to join me for tea.
I don't know how old I was when I received this tea set, but I remember playing with it as a little girl. I am now 56 (but don't tell anyone) and marvel that the set has survived this long. One plate has a chipped edge and the oval platter was dropped as a child and broke into three pieces. My Sweet William (aka my hubby) had me soak the platter in hot water to dissolve the yucky brown glue from decades ago and pieced the platter back together last night. I'm not showing a close up of the platter because he has more work to do on it, removing the excess glue tonight.
Here are photos of the service sitting on a napkin so that you can judge the size.
The service is china and was made in Japan.
Dress your doll or your favorite stuffed animal in their fancy duds and come join me for a cup of tea.
