Welcome to letter W and to this year’s Theme:
The Glories of Tea With Stepheny
The music I grew up with, danced to throughout high school, college, and beyond, has followed me through the years. Love songs still make me sway in front of my kitchen sink. Since we have reached the difficult letters W, X, Y, and Z, I must improvise. This post is dedicated to my dear friend, John Viccilio who reminded me of the Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Armstrong song, You Can’t Take That Away From Me. You remember the wonderful line….the Way you sip your tea? While fixing a cup of tea, I suggest you use your imagination and dance around the kitchen as the young woman or man you once were. Enjoy!
A quick story: This pattern was my mother’s. Each piece/ dinner plates, salad plates, serving pieces, each has a different flower as this cup and saucer have a daisy. The value is that it is complete with everything they made in this Engadine pattern. It sets a glorious table. Included are several size teapots. It has been passed along to my daughter and in turn to her daughter. I hope this beautiful cup and saucer will continue to offer the glories of tea.
