With such an accomplishment as this I was compelled to polish my silver tea service, so we can celebrate in style. This special set has sentimental memories for me. The set was passed down from a dear family friend to my mom and now is in my care.
My mother had a very dear friend named Gladys. My mom lost her mother at age eight and Gladys had never had children. I suppose because Gladys was a few years senior to my mom that their relationship become one liken to mother and daughter. You can see how the relationship would be very special to them.
Gladys was a proper Scottish lady,
with a dry wit, (always laughter in her home)
a love for classical literature (introduced me to Charles Dickens) and
loved the finer things of tea. (the china, good quality tea and eats)
I am sure she passed her passion for collecting dishes onto both my mom and me.
And so I ask you to imagine you hear the drone of the bagpipes in the distance as I pay my respects to a grand lady from my past and honour a cherished friend of the present.
My apologies for the lack of pictures. I have had challenges photographying the tea set. I still have much to learn. I will post pictures as soon as I have something that does the it justice. Don't forget to stop in later.
Meanwhile do visit Wanda and enjoy some of her past posts. The art work and vingettes are so creative.
Thank you for your pateince. Here is the long awaited pictures. Wish there were more.
