Yesterday I headed to the post office to mail packages for the two Valentine Swaps that I had joined. While I was down town I decided to hit our local thrift.
I found the prettiest service for 4 dishes by Royal Prestige. I smiled when I read the name ‘Midnight Moon’.
Perfect for these beauties with the midnight border filled with dainty flowers.
It prompted me to do something that I have been thinking about for a while. To open an etsy shop. I loved these sweet things, but I don’t have a lot of pink in my home.
But before I listed them I had to play a while. It’s not often I get a chance to join the teatime parties.
Working on etsy so no homemade goodies today. Just a simple ginger twist herbal tea and a store bought cookie.
This quote on the back of the tea bag will make all of you tea lovers smile.
I do have a pretty teapot and sugar bowl to go with this ginger tea. Pink and white roses and carnations to match the ‘Midnight Mood’ setting.
I just hope they don’t have me wanting to traipse into the kitchen at midnight for a spot of tea. lol!
I placed them on my red chargers with the beaded edge. It made the darker shade in the roses pop. Notice the pretty embroidered napkin?
I pulled from some of my Valentine vignettes to decorate the center of the table. My pink gazing ball was the perfect shade of pink.
I found these dishes in the collectors case so they were a little more pricey. I really didn’t know much about them, just thought they were so pretty. When I came home and googled them I found that just a cup and saucer was selling for $15 on ebay. Wouldn’t they be a wonderful Valentines Day gift?
We’ll see how this etsy goes. I love the hunt for vintage items, but I just can’t keep them all. I thought it would be a fun way to share my finds!
I’d love if you checked out my new shop on my sidebar! I have more items to list. Just gotta get better at taking pictures.
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
