National Tea Month

Out of inspiration from Blessed Femina and Marie's posts on National Tea Month. And since I don't have my own beautiful lovelies about me at present I have decided to post on a certain collection;


~Catherine the Great~










Catherine the Great is a delightful collection and the love has passed down from my Grandma Ginny, my Mom and to my sister and I. It is not common to see this set sold in stores. My mom loves to help build my grandma's collection by buying a new tea cup every year for Christmas. When my parents and sister ventured over to Russia they were determined to locate a Catherine the Great tea set. They were able to bring back some beautiful sets at a much more affordable price! They surprised me and gave me a little set for a wedding present to my DELIGHT! All us girls guard this china with our life! But we still manage to use it on a semi regular basis ;)
