I joined Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday again this week...
I learned all about tea from my sweet mother, who of course is no long with me. She would have tea every afternoon, I was just a little girl and had my own little tea set, you know the kind I mean that all us little girls have had. She would serve me my little cup which we had with cookies or something my dad had baked, he enjoyed baking and everything he made was delicious.
As I grew up the afternoon tea tradition continued, of course when I was at work we had our tea on weekends and after dinner, we would sit and talk with our cups of tea.
One day we both were out shopping and we saw this tea set, she immediately said, I am buying this for you, I wasn't even married yet this was back in the early 50's, and yes she did purchase it and I treasure it so, it's service for six. Love my very first tea set, thank you mom and I love you always and forever and thanks dad for baking all the goodies.
Had to share these pretty little spoons that I bought at a garage sale, all for $2.00
One of my daughters also enjoys having tea and has taken me and my granddaughter to tea at the Rose Garden Tea Room at the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena several times. It's a beautiful place with many gorgeous gardens and a lovely tea room. Of course the menu is very special, so yummy.
"I cannot sit and chat with you, the way I'd like to do...So brew yourself a cup of tea, I'll think of you, you think of me"
Enjoy the evening and the coming weekend my tea loving friends...
