** Tea Time Tuesday at Lady Katherine's **

I don't have an entire table setting, nor do I even have any food to go along with my tea set. But Lady Katherine was kind enough in past months to invite me to join along, so I'm doing that again today.

This is an adorable little set I bought years ago from one of those "Home Decorator" parties that women hosted in their homes. I don't remember the name of it, at the moment, but this was not their typical item, and must've been available for a certain period of time.

They are miniature in size. The cups and saucers are attached and are approximately one inch high, and the cup is one and a half inches wide (at the top). The tea pot is about 3-1/2 inches high and the tiny lid actually comes off.

They appear to be crocheted out of heavy white thread and are highly starched....thus keeping their shapes!
I especially fell in love with them, because in addition to my love of tea pots and tea cup sets, they reminded me so much of some starched knick-knacks my grandma used to have in her curio cabinets....one being, in particular, of a crocheted high heel shoe!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

** Microfiction Monday **

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, from Stony River where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. This is my 2nd Microfiction Monday. It's fun and challenging. Go to Stony River and join the crowd!

Here's this week's picture, followed by my story for it:

This is so embarrassing. Just keep your head down, pretending to read from your prayer book, and maybe he'll get up and go away.
