Tea time

At the Vintage Fair yesterday I bought this little cup...
... which turns out to go with this little plate:
So great was the delight at having found a partner for the plate that a celebratory tea party was held, at which two very small cakes were shared out, perhaps in the hope that fairies, or plastic deer, would be tempted to come and eat them.
All the mismatched cups and plates were very happy and cheered up an unbelievably cold day.

No one mentioned the fact that the pin up lady was actually an ash tray.

Love the post-market celebratory tea!

And your collection of delightful plates are just marvellous.

Roaring with laughter here. We have the Pinky and Perky mug here and last year at the Vintage and Handmade I bought a white plastic reindeer to sit atop our Christmas cake.

Yep, I have the Pinky and Perky mug too! And a cactus saucer, and a Yogi bear mug that goes with your plate, and good old 'Homemaker' of course!
Mine sit in the china cupboard, and are deprived of cake....
