Tea With Her Dolls~Treasured Times

 I have had the pleasure of this granddaughters' company these past few days. She & I baked oatmeal cookies today,then she set the coffee table for tea & cookies with her dolls.

 Samantha and Cecile ( American Girl dolls) sharing tea with my granddaughter. The dolls have very tiny tea cups.

 My granddaughter chose this lovely little teapot adorned with hummingbirds and flowers.(Thanks Barb !) It is full of hot mint tea.
 Samantha and Cecile wore identical dresses to tea.
 The teacup my granddaughter is using is Rosina bone china, made in England. I found it in a thrift shop.
This is a tiny teacup with gold edging.

Another tea-lover in the making. These photos are so cute, you'll treasure these and so will she. I always look for the smaller tea-cups in the thrift stores with Riley in mind. She'll be 3 soon and loves to have pretend tea. Deb

What a darling tea time with your little granddaughter! Oatmeal cookies sound wonderful and the teacup is really sweet. A Doll Tea Party is the best! Thank you for sharing and coming to tea with me.

This is so sweet, Kathy!! I remember having tea-time when I was a little girl, except all my stuffed animals were in attendance. (I dressed them all up, too~ I made the "boys" wear ties! *haha*)

How special to have tea with your granddaughter! Wonderful memories. I ended up with 3 grandsons...the youngest is now 18. They were NOT interested in tea with grandma! LOL! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

This is absolutely precious.. Your grand daughter is beautiful.. What a great tea party!..I used to be in awe watching my mom with her grand children before she passed away. There's nothing like a relationship between children and their grand parents. it's completely unique and such a blessing!
