Demitasse

 I found these sweet little demitasse cups and saucers several years ago. 

 Not only are they used for demitasse, but it's fun to fill them with a little dessert, like pudding or strawberry shortcake.

 The "Redheads" are from a collection that belonged to my hubbys late aunt.  These two little guys reminded me of my own boys.  A sweet one that would bear gifts and give lots of hugs and love.  The other a fun loving smiley tot, who could charm his way out of anything.



Whether it's coffee or tea, let's sit down and share a memory or two.

Hello,
oh my, those little red head guys are so cute. And the demi cups are sweet, too. We use such cups for Espresso. But its a nice idea to serve little cupcakes or other sweets with them. Thank you for sharing all your treasures.
Best greetings, Johanna

What a sweet setting! The little redheads are too cute and remind me of two of my boys only they didn't inherit their father's red hair. I love serving dessert in teacups because they make such pretty statements. Your demitasses are adorable and such pretty patterns. Thank you for sharing and coming to tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

Those are sweet demitasse cups! I love your idea of putting desserts in them. They are too small for me to be satisfied with tea or coffee, but just the right size for dessert!
Brilliant!
Hugs,
Terri

Oh boy, I had the grandchildren over and our little Isla (almost 1) still has red hair. I'm so happy. I hope she grows up with red hair and freckles just like your cute little boys. The demitasse cups are lovely and so colourful. Have a wonderful week. :)
