Saving Those Childhood Cups and Saucers

I am reposting a few posts from my old blog and I love showing some cups and saucers I collected as a little girl. These were given to me from my Mom when I was about 8 - 12 years old and I displayed them in an old China Cabinet in my bedroom. They were from the post World War II Era. I seem to have 3 extra saucers which means I broke the cups I am sure! They are marked Occupied Japan. I remember seeing Lily of the Valley and Forget Me Nots often on the old dime store Cups and Saucers from the 1950's.
If you have a little girl this would be a wonderful thing to begin collecting! Maybe even consider a special place she could display them on a shelf or cabinet.

What a nice collection of pretty cups and saucers. It must be wonderful to have a collection that was started at such a young age. I remember being very much a tomboy when I was little and didn't have any collections, except maybe books.
