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.
