I really like this pattern from Crown Imperial but I have no idea what the name of it is. I only have six pieces of it so I use it mostly for tea for two. I should bite the bullet and have some search company find it for me, then I'd have another set to work on completing.
Nothing fancy in the tea area. This is a great little tray I got from a thirft store and found, when I shined it up, it is by Reed and Barton. Don't know the pattern or it it has one, but it's perfect for this.
Again I use the Christopher Stuart, “Empire House” teapot from my mother in law
Just a closeup of the napkins. I've had then so long I don't remember where they originated.
This was a recent clearance at Marshall's that I thought I couldn't live without. If you look in the background you can see the Agave juice that we tend to prefer for sweetner. Perhaps I'll have to start looking for a cute little honey thing. Hmmmmm,,, think I saw one recently.
The tray came years ago from Costco and was in a set of two or three. This one is the middle size and I use it a lot of my ottoman for drinks and snacks and, of course, tea.
Many, many thanks to all of you how are visiting.
