Tickled Tea Tipping Pink

Another PINK Saturday has arrived, please click on over to Beverly for more pink ideas, she is our host and includes a list of participants with her post today.
I'm posting my four teacups and matching saucers my grandmother had.

I found a perfect shelf to display all of them. My grandmother packed 4 shoe boxes each full of 4 teacups and saucers for 4 of her granddaughters.
They weren't to be opened until long after she was gone. They had no one names on them. She left them with my mother.

I love my collection and I'm tickled they are finally unpacked.


No tipping here! The shelf has a groove in the wall side of the wood for the saucers to sit in, and you can see the rail guarding the cups. They are hung in my diningroom.

Monetary tipping allowed! Especially for the cook! Just kidding.C&G Design

Ohhhh, you brought tears to my eyes, but good ones. What a joy it was to wrap the four shoe boxes in joyus Christmas paper and place them under the Christmas tree and put my four daughters names on them and put from Nana on the tag 15 years after Nana was gone from our mortal world! Could'nt hardly wait for you girls to read "from Nana" and see your faces!!!!

Happy Pink Saturday, Dawn. I agree that you should always tip the cook. ;-)

What a wonderful gift from your grandmother. She would love that you display and treasure her pretty teacups.
