First up, a silver tea set!
My grandmother gave this set of silverplate to my aunt (Aunt Marilyn), who gave it to me as a Christmas present. She had cleaned the set, but I went over the pieces again with silver paste, and they came out so beautifully!
I currently have the tea tray set on top of a new present I bought myself (there was a pre-Christmas sale)
A pretty Queen Anne hunt board! I put it in the basement so I am ready for my next party :). I have been watching this piece since last spring and the discount finally pushed me over.
The top is a piece of ruler and scrabble pieces, and the bottom has little cups and saucers and even a spoon hanging from it! Here is a closer shot:
And here are the three gifts from my parents,
the Spode teapot from my New Year's brunch, a new Teapot calendar for my kitchen, and a pink Royal Albert box that I am so excited about! I will definitely have to plan a party around that new piece (which will remain a mystery for now)!
