Acchoooo! Achoo, aaaaachoooo! sniff, sniff......
I am glad for once that our Tea Cup Tuesday is virtual. Because I wouldn't want to give any of you the flu I have right now. So lucky us. We can visit anyways!
If I am feeling better in the morning I will add more pictures to this T.T. post for Cielo's Victorian Tea Party which began early today, but I was toooo icky to play. So you can visit all of us for T.T. through Mr. Linky below and you can click on the Victorian Tea Party button on my right to go see a whole list of others playing with Cielo.
I love this china I am showing you today. It has beautiful guiding, and it glows so beautifully in sunlight or candlelight, making it perfect for outside afternoon teas and indoors romantic candlelight teas.
This beautiful flower motif is inside the cups and in the center of all the plates.
On the back in gold stamp it says Liberty Gold, Made in USA, Warranted, 22-K gold, and then some have different numbers like 11 11 and 08. I have done some research but have not found the company name or year it was made. Please let me know if any of you out there know about this china's origins.
I can remember tea times throughout my life quite vividly. I remember the ladies tea at our church when I was a young woman. I love setting out all the tea cups and then lovingly washing them when the tea was over. Chatting with all the other mothers and wives was uplifting and encouraging.
Then there were the high teas that my Scottish friends shared with me. Four o'clock each day, tea and cakes! And not just any tea, fresh scones with homemade preserves and clotted cream!
And the company was so delightful. There were always plenty of stories to be told. I loved every minute of those visits.
I have been blessed to have shared tea with many friends through the years. I always loved those moments of a warm cup and a shared conversation.
Now, in our virtual world, we are sharing tea again. And even though we do not meet in person, our hearts meet. For there is no distance between hearts.
Thank you for coming by for tea today.
