Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: glasses, cups, saucers

Glasses, Cups, Saucers

I was so pleased to see this challenge as it gave me an excuse to show off some of my vintage china. I love old things and have been collecting vintage household items for years. For this challenge I am going to show you some of my English bone china tea cups, my beautiful Royal Albert dinner set , my seventies stacking mugs and last but not least some vintage glasses. Some of you might think they are sexist. I am sorry in advance if anyone does not approve of these and is offended. I always thought they were rather interesting myself.

Royal Albert
Moonlight Rose by Royal Albert
Vintage tea setting
Here are some of my vintage tea cups. Anyone for High Tea?
More vintage tea cups
There is nothing more relaxing than a good cuppa and a chat with people you love.
Stacking Mugs
I won most of these mugs on the sideshows in the 1970’s. They were a very common sight at the breakfast table and at morning and afternoon tea.
Vintage Glasses
Vintage Lady Glasses. When you turn these around the elegant ladies are in their underwear.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
