I've always loved Vintage China. Imagine how excited I was to discover the stunning array of vintage tea sets, dinner ware and cutlery on, The Vintage Table.
This is what I call, Creative Business - when someone takes their passion and knowledge for something wonderful and turns it into a business they truly LOVE.
Alison from The Vintage Table has done just that. She's created a Perth based business that hires out Exquisite Vintage Tableware. Her collection is breathtaking. I love the fact that all these gorgeous items, form the 1940's, 50's and 60's, are being used and enjoyed to this day.
Whenever I drink tea from a beautiful vintage teacup, I feel
- Respect - for the craftsmanship from a bygone era
- Nostalgic - for the laughter and countless conversations each cup has been privy to over its lifetime. What secrets those cups could tell!
- Reflective - who owned these treasured items and why? Were they a gift from a friend, a sister or mother? Were they given to celebrate a birthday, a wedding or just because?
- Appreciation - for every hand that's held, washed, wrapped, stored and cared for these precious pieces from our past.
I think it's time to put the kettle on!
Enjoy your creative journey, Jules
