Hello dear friends
It's hard to believe we are now in the
last week of November!
My dear mother had a great fondness
for fine china and she passed on many
lovely pieces to me
including this Hammersley tea set.
Hammersley & Co, Longton, Stoke on Trent, England.
I really feel privileged to be the custodian
of this precious china and
I will be passing it on to my daughter one day!
Each piece is hand painted so beautifully
and the colors are still bright
after all these years.
I treat it with great care
and hand wash each piece in
From the middle photo above you can see
how fine the china is by the gtranslucence
you can almost see through it.
Walnut and parsnip cake
which I served at one of our
embroidery group Tuesdays.
(let me know if you would like the recipe)
Mauve, purple, lilac shades are not my color choice
usually, but I have grown to love these.
I still remember my mother's
elegant afternoon tea parties
with her dear chatty friends.
Today I'm joining
Mary for Mosaic Monday
and the following tea parties
