Tea For Two-sday ~ Link Up Your Teacup Tales
Welcome to Tea For Two-sday!! Since people are stopping by to link up, I suppose I should offer you a treat to go with your tea...
Hopefully a Powdered Sugar Pound Cake will be to your liking!
These teacups were kept in a cabinet with a glass door, right near the dining room table in my grandparents' house. I admired them many a time as a child and my sister and cousins would all pick out our favorites. I even saw them in use several times as my Grandmother did often make and serve tea.
Even though I consider these cups heirlooms, I use them regularly. They are often the very first teacups I pull out when serving tea to guests! These cups bring back memories of my grandparents' house ~ the hustle & bustle in the kitchen, the yummy smells wafting through the house, the sound of Grandpa playing The Entertainer on the piano, the laughter of cousins upstairs making up skits to perform, the crackle of the fire in the fireplace ~ aaaahhhhh.
I hope that you will share a Teacup Tale today! You could share a favorite teacup, a memory of a teacup, teacups you wish you had, teacup pictures - be creative! Prepare your Teacup Tale post (if you haven't already) and come back here to link it up with MckLinky below. If you don't have a blog, please feel free to share about your teacups in the comments!
Have a lovely Tea For Two-sday and keep checking back to enjoy some other Teacup Tales today!
