Happy Vintage New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe & wonderful holiday period & you're all as ready for the new year as I am?

I've just started collecting items for a party I'm planning in a couple of year's time (me, an over planner...never!). It's for the 25th anniversary of my partner & I being together & I'm envisioning a Mad Hatter's Tea Party; because 'we're all mad here'.

I want to use as many vintage things for it as I can & to that end have chosen a basic style & begun looking for items to fit that. I'm very happy to have acquired this lovely tea set on Etsy

Isn't it gorgeous! If you happen to come across any of this type of iridescent black & cream porcelain in your travels, please let me know.
