Vintage Thingies Thursday 18 - Tea Set

This week I'm showing you something I used when I took pictures of my new tea cosy made by the talented Dawn from Piece & Love for me for the Time for Tea Swap. Coloradolady is hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday again, and on her blog you find the list of links to all the other blogs playing along this week.



My vintage thingies are a silver tea/coffee set and a little tablecloth. We had the silver set from my parents as a silver wedding anniversary some years ago. They have been birthday presents for my maternal grandfather.




The tray has a different pattern but they have always been used together.



The tablecloth is a very small one, with a clover pattern in each corner. Like all my old tablecloths, this comes from my family but I don't know who made it. The stitching is very simple so this may be a beginner's work. The colours go very nicely with my new tea cosy!


Now go to Suzanne's blog to visit the other vintage posts, and notice that Suzanne is also having a giveaway for her birthday on Saturday!
