some tea love
Some tea love from Stephanie www.loftcreations.blogspot.com . Thank you so much. What a treat to find this in my mailbox!
My mother was always a very devoted tea drinker. When she got married in 1952 my Aunt made this for her and it hung in her kitchen. It was in pretty bad shape after 54 years (there was no glass over it). I used a wonderful product called 'Restoration' (purchased at my lqs). The dirt and dust immediately came off and it looked so bright and pretty that I had it framed. So now it's good for another 50 years. At my mother's funeral, a family friend mentioned that he remembered that sampler and always felt welcomed in my mom's kitchen - where they would of course inevitably have a cup of tea.
