Things in my House Thursday XII

My Mother has collected teacups and saucers since she was a young woman...so I'd say about 70 years. When I was a little girl, I'd love to hear 'the story' about each one...who gave it to her, or where it came from...
Since she lives in a little townhouse now, she does not have enough room for all of her belongings, so has entrusted these precious cups to me...so here are a few of them on display.

I want to thank everyone who has left such sweet comments about my Auntie Fern. I do have such fond memories of their family coming to North Dakota to stay on the farm...and of our family traveling to Minneapolis to stay in the city. She was a special lady.

I'm so glad you are taking care of your mother's teacups; they are beautiful and dainty.

The grandmother that I posted about today also collected teacups and saucers and I dearly wish I had them.

Thanks for being part of TIMHT!

The little tea cups look like the ones I posted a while back...little tiny ones from a tea set I was given...very cool! How extra special that you have the stories to go with the cups!

I love the hanging rack with the cups and sauces on, it looks very decorative and displays them beautifully.
