Pretty Tea Tiles

 As you can tell I haven't posted since my St Louis trip shopping with my daughter and I think I lost my camera someplace on that trip? Anyway I can't find it in this house where I hang out.
So i'm looking back through old picture just to write a post.
Hopefully the camera will show up. I have been wanting a better camera but sure didn't want to spend the money for one I would rather spend that much money on a trip someplace.

These picture are of what I call tea tiles ,which  you set your hot tea pot on. Instead of sitting right on your table.I always liked the ones with ladies faces. I haven't used them for some time. Sort of like a hot pad. Very Victorian 
                                                                               

Always anything with the sweet little blue birds is desirable to have 
I always like the ones with ladies  on them 
 And then there is roses


Happy Mother's Day to all us Mothers 

I'll keep looking for my camera, I just remembered I have an old digital camera someplace in this house so going to look for it. I am great at sticking things in drawers and not remembering which drawer upstairs or downstairs?

  2. At my age, I thought I had heard of most vintage goodies, but not this one. Great find and useful.

  3. I love the tea tiles....I wouldn't have known what they were! Beautiful.

    So sorry about your camera. If you decide to invest in one look at Amazn.com first. You will always find something in your budget and look at the customer reviews. I really and truly rely on those.

  26. Janice,
    Tea tiles... never heard of them either, but not surprising since ALL of my family drinks ice tea. No one drinks hot tea. Hope you find your camera.

    Thanks for stopping by. Every time I read your blog's name I smile with a vision of curtains in a tree.
