Summer Sunday afternoon tea [+photo]

A white teacup and saucer, covered with a lacy teacup cover weighted with colored beads.
Gma’s china and Twin’s teacup cover.

Years ago — a decade or more — my beloved twin gifted me with a set of pretty teacup covers to use when taking tea outdoors.

I rarely had a chance to use them for a long time.  Our first apartment had a balcony of decent size, but we had little enough furniture for the apartment let alone furniture for the deck.

Our second apartment had a balcony that was either an okay size for my garden or an okay size for a cafe table and chairs.  The garden won.

Cobweb Cottage, however, has a communal deck that runs the entire length of the back half of the building.  Now i am free to take tea outside as often as the weather permits — and, inevitably, if Andy can’t find me anywhere in the house then i am for sure out back sitting at the deck table.

And, quite often, i am sipping tea (perhaps from my grandmother’s china) and thinking of my twin. <3

    1. So nice to use them for their intended purpose and not just for keeping dust out of carafes in the cupboard.

      Also — HOW HAS IT BE MORE THAN 10 YEARS, HOW HOW HOW?!?!?!
