hand-me-down treasures

Two of my loves enjoying tea.  We should call it warm sweet peppermint and cream tea (like candy).  I was headed out to work yesterday and spotted David setting it up -- I just had to stay behind a few extra minutes to grab some photos.  

The tiny white porcelin tea cups + saucers where mine when I was young elementry school.  I recently gave Magnolia a handful of my old toys that I treasured when I was little.  Part of me was nervous to go ahead and give them to her -- she is younger than I was when I had them.  But when I watched how happy and excited she was, knowing they were mommy's treasures, I knew I had not made a bad choice.  

Hand-me-down treasures are the best kids of treasures.  The blue tea set pieces?  They were my Grammie's and now my family and I proudly treasure them together in her honor.  There are no price tags for such things.
