Mementos from Mackinac Island

Most of us did a little souvenir shopping at The Grand Hotel,
and came away with these perfect mementos of our afternoon tea experience.
These are perfect for a tea-themed Christmas tree.
I also visited a variety of shops along Main and Market Streets on Mackinac Island,
including one with vintage china.  I found two vintage Aynsley English Bone China
Cream and Sugar sets in the small size I collect.
 The open sugar bowl is two inches tall.

The next set is a vintage Aynsley Shamrock pattern, 
and is the same small size. 

Now, I need to find a good way to display my collection.  
Hmm, I may need to buy a new shelf on which to display them all.

Both sets are lovely, as are The Grand teapot and teacup ornaments.

Well, I do love teacup and teapot ornaments, but those Aynsley sets are even more wonderful! Great finds and great mementos of a fun trip.

Oh, wow, what perfect souvenirs for you! I absolutely love it when tea friends find *exactly* the things they collect! :)

Beautiful sugar and creamer sets! And several Christmas trees will be decorated with the Camellia Rose ornaments this year!
