is having a "What's in Your Cabinet" party. It sounds like fun so here I am posting something for you all. I did not show all my cabinets because it's just too much and I do not want to overwhelm you but I am showing a few where I keep some tea sets. I apologize in advance because there are still a lot of pictures even if I did not shpw everything. Enjoy!
This one's in the family and you probably have seen it cause it is the newest cabinet that we acquired.
I keep my flow blue collection here and then some.
Bottom shelf has my Homer Laughlin eggshell dinner and tea set and a silver plated set.
This large cabinet is in the kitchen. I bought it from Nancy of Nancy's Daily Dish.
The top shelf has Quimper pieces and others.
Second shelf has some MacKenzie Childs dishes and a Queen Elizabeth II teapot and cups.
The bottom shelf has my pink/peach American Limoges Coronet tea set. I have other pieces which I stored in the garage. Yes, I have a walk in dish room in the garage full of dishes and 1/3 of the garage has shelves that hold more of my dishes.
On one side shelf holds a tea set that looks like a blue and white pottery. I also have 4 antique teacup sets here that have an unusual shape. Notice the deep saucers and the spouted cups. Supposedly, hot coffee is poured from the cup into the saucers to cool and then sipped from the saucer.
Bottom of left side shelves holds Limoges William Guerin and Hammersley's Bird of Paradise dish sets and cups.
On the middle shelf of the right cabinet is a tea set with Fleur de lis.
The bottom has Bavarian Tirshenreuth "Rosedale" dish set.
I have some Old Britain Castle cup sets here. I have a complete dinnerware set that is stored in the garage. The only reason I left some here is to remind me to use them if I want to. I also have a tea set in the garage in the same pattern.
On top of the fridge is a chicken teapot and chicken sugar and creamer set inside the cloche and another unmarked one with a bird finial.
I also have another cloche up there with antique cups.
I have a copper tea kettle hanging on the pot rack above the kitchen island.
I have more tea sets in the kitchen cabinets and on top of the cabinets, mostly Polish Pottery which I won't bother showing now. It's just too much.
In the formal dining room, I have this corner china cabinet.
Inside is my gold and platinum Greek key dinnerware set which includes a complete tea/coffee set.
Next to it is a tea table with white coffee and tea lattice set.
The bottom shelf holds a Celadon set and a Sheffield silver plated teapot behind it.
In the hallway, I have a doll cabinet.
and I keep my Prince William and Princess Kate plate and cup here. It's special to me because they were married on April 29 (which is written on the china), which is both my husband's and my birthdays. Their initials of CW are written both on the plate and cup too which are also my initials.
You might have seen this because I posted it maybe last month. It was a cabinet in the family room which I moved to a guest room designated for my mom.
Everything here are tea sets. Top has Johann Haviland Brown Rose, 2 other BavarianTirschenreuth teapot sets and a Tirschenreuth "Briar Rose" tea and coffee sets.
2nd shelf has Hammersley's "Bird of Paradise tea set, a teaset with Victorian courting couple, a jade mini tea set, Tirschenreuth set (can't remember pattern name) and Poland's Warvel.
Third shelf has Kent Pottery tea set, 222 Fifth green and white "Adelaide", a coffee pot with purple flowers called Enchantment by Royal Stafford, Tirschenreuth green and white set and Tracy Porter's Artesian. I love the peacocks on that one.
The bottom shelf has my Spode Emma's Garland set and some others that I cannot remember pattern names.
Thanks for your visit and especially for your kind comments.
I appreciate the hostesses for these fun parties and for all their hard work.
I have a lot more tea sets in other cabinets and in the garage too but I will just show those some other time.
