"I'm glad I was not born before tea." -- Sidney Smith
I love teacups and saucers. I like to mix and match them for tea service. There are the dainty pretty ones.
The more bold looking ones.
The striking blue and white ones.
The plain coloured ones...........
They all work together for a "common purpose". They are a good team, don't you think ?
Now, a little snippet from the series "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery which I read when I was much younger and have since re-read.
"I can just imagine myself sitting down at the head of the table and pouring out the tea,"
said Anne, shutting her eyes ecstatically, "and asking Diana if she takes sugar!
I know she doesn't, but of course I'll ask her just as if I didn't know."
