* tea set

Posted on April 17th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Craft Room.

Another good idea from Thimble: wire plate hangers. I’ve seen Martha do this, too, but it always seemed stuffy, unlike the sweet little plates Thimble has. Working on the rule of thumb that making something smaller makes it cuter, I wired up these Holly Hobbie tea set plates. My sister gave them to me, a whole set of 4 cups, 4 saucers, 4 plates, and a teapot. I found them last weekend stuffed in a box, all wrapped up so I wouldn’t break them in our last move. I’m going to hang them on the wall in my craft room. I just used some beading wire since they’re so teeny. The little one is about an inch and a half in diameter.


The teapot is missing it’s top, but it’ll still look cute on the shelf beside the wall with the plates. For the cups, I think I’m going to put little cup hooks along the shelf and hang them.

    So sweet! I, too, had a Hollie Hobbie room–complete with my canopy bed (with her on it, of course), oh, I loved that!

    When I was little I was quite determined I was going to BE Holly Hobby – or any of the girls on Little House On The Prairie. Love the little teapot :)

    Wow, I think I had this tea set. It looks very familiar. Thanks for the memories!

    Actually the top was not included in the tea sets. I found my daughters Holly Hobby tea set in the basement. It is still in the box, just a little dusty. She wasn’t too interested in tea parties, to the dismay of her grandmother. So, the set was not used. I thought the top of the tea pot and sugar bowl were missing, but there was a note included in the box that states the tops were not included due to the small size, they presented a choking hazard.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
