It was 13 when I got up this morning. I am done drinking coffee for the day so to stay warm how about a little tea vignette. I have several teapots and tons of tea cups but I have not really shared any yet. For January I wanted to set my buffet up in blue.........I did not get it done.
I cleaned my new silver tray I picked up and put this together for today.
The creamer, sugar, and tea cup are from my Grandmothers everyday dishes.
I am so glad I kept them. I was looking for a house about the time my Grandfather died and my Mom said, "you better get that house, what are you going to do with all this stuff".
Well of course I got my house with a huge dining room and I am oh so glad I kept ALL of my Grandmothers dishes, silver and crystal. Many items go back to my GGGrandparents.
This the pattern my Grandparents ate off of everyday in my Grandma's blue kitchen.
I have the 8 piece place setting along with the creamer and sugar. The teapot is one I purchased several years ago..small enough for a couple of cups.
Don't you just love the teaspoon. She had 8 of these teaspoons, probably extras for when she had a meeting of Eastern Star or Book lovers at her house.
The sugar has a one pattern
The creamer another pattern, all English countryside
Aren't the handles so ornate?
The silver tray cleaned up pretty well, the engraving is so pretty and looks like Daisy's. Too bad I did not have some Daisy's today.
Now to make it a Valentine Day post
Notice the blue tea pot in the card?
"I'm all steamed up"
Hope you stay warm in the arms of those you love today
