One of my embroidery friends Mary
has an enviable collection of tea cups
most of which belonged to her mother.
This cup is called Summertime
made by Royal Weston in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
I recently read that drinking tea in the afternoon
had it's beginnings at Woburn Abbey.
During the late 1800's Duchess Anna Maria
wife of the 7th Duke of Bedford
complained of having that "sinking feeling"
in the late afternoon.
This was remedied by a strong cup of tea
which took her through until dinner at 8pm!
