When my grandmom passed away, it was up to my mom, dad, sister and I to go through her things and figure out what to do with it all. One of the items I picked out for myself was a small tea set. I don’t know why I liked it, but my sister and mom didn’t want the delicate set and I took it. It was neatly put away in a special box.
For years it stayed in that special box until my daughter was born and had her first tea party.
Now I am not any kind of antique expert, so recently I have been curious what the meaning of the writing is under the saucer:
This could well be upside down for all I know.
One of the freakiest moments we have had though, was during Laura’s little tea parties with her friend Shelby, they both got a little spooked when at the bottom of their cup, at the end of their tea, they both noticed, “Hey, there is a face in my cup!”
Sure enough, closer examination showed a definate image of a Geisha looking lady, inside the bottom of their tea cups!
Now that we’re used to our little lady at the bottom of our teacups we’re not so spooked anymore, just a little curious as to the origins of my grandmom’s little tea set.
