Nostalgic Collectible

Who can forget their first tea party?  Playing
dress-up and treating your teddy bear and
favorite doll to a lavish repast.  A time where
the tea was perfect and the snacks were sweet,
days were endless, and dreams reflected all
things possible.

All grown up, and remembering those sweet
memories tugs at our heartstrings and wishes
for the simplest of pleasures.

The perfect tea party always started
with your imagination.
