The Tea Set Betty has started her own very unique Tea Set. She is asking for donations of china cups and saucers to put together a truly unique and eclectic collection.
This will not just be a collection of china, but a collection of stories. The collection has been started by Betty Ayers, with more donated or pledged. The idea is to have a storyboard at each tea party which will have pictures of the teacups and saucers and the stories behind them. When you attend or host your own tea party with tea consultant Belle Ayers Tea Party, you will be able to check out the story behind the cup and saucer you are using, or perhaps inspireing a few stories of your own?
The Tea Set is beginning to take on a colorful, eclectic life of it's own now...if you would like to donate a cup and saucer AND the story behind it, any size, adult or child's ceramic and any seaseon or holiday (the child size will be used for Tea Tasting Parties, just the right size)...please email email@example.com or bring your donation along to the next tea!
Each person who donates a cup and saucer receives a gift certificate! Thank you!

This beautiful English Rose teacup & saucer, purchased at TJ MAX is the first pattern I truly want to collect. I have others but this one is beautiful and pink! Made by Roy Kirkham, England fine bone china. The only difference is that my teacup has a gold ring around the bottom of the teacup. Photo...an exclusive design, Footed, ribbed and no trim.
Royal Daulton Chanticlair Salt (hen) & Pepper (rooster) set 2004, Studio, Rooster, Flowers, Stripes.
This photo is from the Royal Dalton ad. A copy of my set, found at the Good Will in January 2012. I've always been attracted to roosters but this is my only choice. They are so cute and adorable. I have bought rooster items for family gifts and this set is the best. All their red colors are striking. I am a thrift shopper of the Good Will and find some beautiful home decor.
Are you a Tea Lady, wife & mom, or student? Do you collect aprons? I do. Can't resist those lovely aprons.
Most of mine are in storage but I bought a new one
last week...that I will be showing you! I'm messy in cooking, dishwashing and various household duties, so I have to wear
an apron. Started as a young married woman, I enjoyed them
so. Come to think of it, an apron was my first sewing adventure
in school (4-H Club). Mine was green checkered with dark
green trim. Gee, was I proud of it!
I look forward to hearing about your apron collection and seeing
photos when possible.
May this be your sweetest spring,
Blessings, Betty (please tell us your story below) Thanks!
