So last night I hauled out a little box from the basement
one that had about a dozen little china cups
with saucers to match
am I having a tea party??
no ~ but this week-end there will be one
as part of a week-end long anniversary celebration.
The Riverview Fire Department is celebrating their
as some of you know ~ Trevor ~ aka hubby
joined the department as a volunteer firefighter
back in 2003
through the department we have met so many people
good people and have made some great friends
on Sunday night we went to a meeting
as they were looking for people to help out
over the week-end.
lots to do as you well well imagine with a BBQ on
Friday night for past and present members
an open house at the station on Saturday
with a pancake breakfast
a ladies tea for the spouses
and then a banquet and dance Saturday night
for all to kick back ~ have a few
and dance the night away.
So along with manning the welcome table on Friday night
I offered to supply some cups and saucers for the tea
it was suggested not to take any that I would be crushed
if something happened to them
this one is my absolute favorite
so it went back in the box!
I love that it has an "S" on the bottom from when
my grandmother used to take hers to bridge games
and church functions
so I chose a few along with this little cream & sugar set
my little collection came from my grandmothers
on both sides
and to see them makes me smile
and I remember heaping spoonfuls of sugar
in my tea ~ with milk please
I shudder at the thought of sugar now
but I will take a bit of honey now and then
so my man will be all decked out in his dress uniform
on Saturday night
and I hope to have some shots of the week-end
to share with you on Monday.
Hope your week is going well
and that you have seen more sunshine
