Aren't they lovely?
These are the cups I use twice a week to make tea and coffee at the Senior Citizens Centre. My Nana used to have a set exactly like them and it feels somehow right that I am a temporary guardian of something so steeped in my own history. I know I am in the minority here! Marathon Runner tells me frequently how eccentric I am, forming attachments to the strangest items. (I think a very old fork and a geometry set feature high in this list.)
On the 'for sale' table there was a lovely assortment of three cups, four saucers and one plate just begging for a good home! Who could resist that?
Roses and coconut buns!
Doesn't it feel really decadent to have a design on the inside of the cup?
Talking of roses, I wish you could smell this one. It is Alec's Red, a hybrid tea.
Now Midsummer's Day is over, it's all downhill til Christmas!
