Today I was doing some much needed cleaning on the shelves that hold my teapots. I came across this old cream and sugar set. There is a story that goes with these. These are approximatedly 75 years old. They belonged to my mother. She said when she was a very young girl-about 6 or 8 yrs old-an old peddler came by their house riding a horse. On his horse, he had several saddle bags filled with trinkets to sell. One of them was the cream and sugar set. She said she remembered begging her dad to buy them for her. I guess she must have given him the right look because as you can see he did purchase them. My grandfather was a logger and money was not easy to come by. This set always held a special place in her heart. Every time she would clean them up, she would tell me this story so today, as I cleaned them, I told my girls how this particular set came to be in our home. Memories are special. They need to be shared.
This is another old set I have. The sugar bowl was my grandmothers and the cream pitcher was my mother-in-laws. Hubby bought me the teapot several years ago. All I need now are some cups and saucers to match.
Tonights supper is homemade soup. I am making a new bread recipe to go with it. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Enjoy your evening and God bless.
