Tea Party Memories


It is zero degrees or colder here all this week. Every morning we get up and look at the thermometer outside. The dogs don't even want to go out! I wear my Cuddl Duds all the time! We get a little fresh powdered sugar snow every day, then out comes the sunshine. Today I grabbed my camera and took photos out all the windows, then began looking through the camera lens inside the house and saw these china treasures with fresh eyes.

Here are teacups given to me by a dear neighbor, Peggy, and from my grandmother. They were birthday gifts to me more than 40 years ago! The pretty "chocolate pot" belonged to Peggy's mother-in-law. Peggy had a built-in corner cabinet in her dining room filled with teacups and saucers. She would invite me to pick my favorite of the day and we would have tea together. She began that tradition with me when I was about 6 yrs. old. She was a special lady!

You are in good company with the tea cups and that gorgeous chocolate pot. I know so many women who collect these things. Beautiful items from the past.
