What Childhood Teasets Survived?


When I was a little girl I made mud pies outside with this blue willow teaset.....yes mudpies! If you speak with a lady who had a teaset during the 1950's - it was almost always a blue willow teaset.(See the legend of the blue willow on this blog.) I have collected these other ones below as an adult! Some little girl owned them I am sure and wonders where they went! I purchased the green and pink set in a junkie antique shop. I hope it wasn't yours.......

I had a Blue Willow teaset in the 1950's. The only piece remaining is a plate, but I have memories of serving "tea" to my dolls.

Love seeing your children's teasets. I collect them too. The blue willow I have was my sister in laws. She didn't want it. Love to dream of having tea as a little girl. I think I am still a little girl at heart.

Cute little teasets. I have found some cups and saucers but no sets.

I have the blue willow tea set - complete. My grandfather brought it to Alaska when he came to visit, when I was 7. I was sick the day he arrived and was playing with the teaset in my bed and put my elbow on a saucer and broke it. I've searched and searched and searched for a replacement - mine is finer and more dainty than all that I've found so far. My grandson loved to play tea party with it when he was 4 and 5 - I miss those days now that he is 8 1/2 - don't forget the half. I also have a pine cone child's tea set - I always wonder who had it before me and make up stories about her tea parties, I think they were in the woods.
