If you've been a follower of my blog for awhile, you know that when "A Sandy Clough Tea" was still in existence, I was an independent distributor for her company.
One of the items in Sandy's product line was a darling child's porcelain tea set. Below is an actual photo of Sandy having a tea party with her dolls. The photo was printed on the cover of the box the tea set is packaged in.
This is a companion book to the tea set.
Below are photos taken at one of the home parties where the hostess invited little girls to attend along with their mothers. The girls loved being at the tea party. You can see the child's tea set on display in the far-right corner.
Getting ready to eat Sandy's chocolate cake [which we demonstrators/tea ladies always provided] and drink caffeine-free Pink Sunshine tea [strawberry vanilla] that Sandy had blended. I gave each of the girls a gift bag to take home. That's my granddaughter, Tiffany, standing on the left filling up a teapot. She helped at many of my Sandy Clough tea parties, and I loved taking her with me when her schedule permitted. Tables were set up in the kitchen and living room for all the little girls and their moms.
Here's Tiffany again from a front view, modeling the apron that was also a part of Miss Sandy's Tea Party collection. At this point, Tiffany is my only granddaughter who enjoys tea, tea parties, pretty dishes and vintage things. I gave her several Sandy Clough pieces for her own home someday.
This was the brochure that featured the tea set.
On the inside cover is an acrostic for Lady, and a perfect description of a tea party!
L is for lots of fun
A is for always being kind and friendly.
D is for doing the right thing, and practicing manners.
Y is for yummy food!
This was Miss Sandy's Tea Party product line, with a recipe for Strawberry-Banana sandwiches in the lower left corner. [Click to enlarge]
I don't have a doll collection, but my one-and-only sits in my living room, in her own little chair. ;-) On the tray in front of her is a close-up of Sandy's adorable tea set.
Next Thursday, January 24th, will be my one year blogging anniversary. I've been giving considerable thought as to what my give-away will be. Since it's not going to be restricted to U.S. residents, I'm being mindful of shipping weight. I've decided that Sandy's book, "Come to My Tea Party," will be one of the items. Visit my blog next week to view the entire give-away.
