My Mom's Teapot



One of my early memories of having tea was with my mother. Now I don't know if it was with the teapot I am showing. This teapot was in her belongings when she moved to a nursing home several years ago. It says Sadler England under the teapot. As the daughter of a single mother sometimes money was very tight. At times like these my mom would bring out the Lipton tea bags, the teapot, and a plate of toast strips and we would pretend we were rich ladies having tea. We held up our "pinkies" and drank the tea, ate the toast, and giggled. Oh how it lifted our spirits.

i used to wake up and have tea every morning with my father (a habit he formed as a student in England)
Lovely teapot, nice, feel-good blog.

Such sweet memories --- what 'tea' and 'relationships' are all about!

I'm so delighted that you have started a blog!

How sweet of your mom to create such fun times with simple ingredients of tea, toast and family.
