Tea with Friends - 'Heritage', Scenes of early Canada

Today's tea is being held at my daughter's house and she doesn't even know it.  One day when I was babysitting I took out her tea things to look at as I knew they were unique and decided I should photograph them for later use.  They're part of a set of dishes passed down from a great-great-aunt on my husband's side of the family.

The bottom of the teapot describes how each piece has a different hand engraving of a scene from early Canada. 

Above are the cream and sugar.  Can't you just imagine how fun it would be over tea to look at each interesting scene this set has?
I'm taking tea with Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage and Lady Katherine of Lady Katherine Tea Parlor and I know they'd love you to join us.


  1. Judith, I'm so happy you took these photos to share with us. This set is lovely. Love both the graceful shapes and the scene. Happy Tea Time!
