Nostalgia: Sunday Creative

Nostalgia: n. a wistful yearning for something past or irrecoverable

Grandma’s Tea Cups

I use to visit my grandma’s house every summer. I remember her living room was lined with shelves that were covered with tea cups, and sugar & creamer sets from everywhere around the world. They were irresistible to my two brothers and I. We touched when we should not have, several sets did not survive our growing up years.  My grandmother is 97 years old now, my mother has passed, so I am the keeper of what is left of the collection.

This is one of my favorite sets, a sugar and creamer set.

  1. These are elegant! Beautiful pieces! My grandmother collected china cup and saucer sets; she died 45 years ago, and I wonder what happened to them!
