An Autumn Cup of Tea
When we went to Alberta for a wedding in August, my mother-in-law divided among her daughters and daughters-in-law, her china teacups. In the 1950s it was fashionable to give bone china cups as wedding and shower gifts. I came home with several and I shared them with my daughters and daughter-in-law. I think the one above is going to be taken down from its perch to become my autumn teacup. The colours and leaves just remind me of this wonderful season. And as I sip my tea, I'll thank God for mum and for the love she's shown me in the years I've known her.

Hi Lorrie...I love your autumn teacup. My sister and I will be inheriting tea cups as well. My Mom and Dad were married on a Wednesday..and for many months after, my dad gave her a china tea cup on the Wednesday of each month. Strange little story...but true. The china cabinet is full!ReplyDelete

I do like the cup and saucer holder - different.
I enjoyed reading your September Delights and nearly took a peck of your muffins.
