We’ve attended seminars together and have gone out for lunch. Victoria magazine has suggested forming a circle of friends with whom we have something in common. Last week Jennifer had Valerie and I for lunch and tea to her home and we’ll continue to host our gatherings with a Christmas lunch at my house. Perhaps we’ll add to our circle too.
Jen’s table looked lovely when we arrived.
There was a pretty bouquet of flowers on the table
and she had her silver tea set all polished up.We had a delicious homemade squash soup first, then salad and hot crusty bread followed by……….
warm apple crisp with whipped cream……and of course our tea.
Val on the left and Jen beside her posed for my tea with friends post.
While you’re visiting for tea, I want to show everyone the new antique tea cart I just bought. It was listed on Kijiji which is like eBay without the bidding. It was close to an hour and a half drive to view the cart, but it was love at first sight.
I’m hoping someone will know a little about the styling of this tea cart as it is unusual. On-line I found one in the US listed as an 1800’s tea cart and another in Canada as a stagecoach tea cart.
Three glass door open on each side and the end glass panes tilt outwards.
The top is much narrower than I expected and I had to rearrange things from how they were on my metal tea wagon.
There’s some nice detailing carved into the mahogany wood.
The front view has a shelf with spindles around it and the back has a handle and just a flat shelf.
