Tea Cup Memories
The other day, I drank Constant Comment tea in one of Mother's cups. These are the cups we always used at her place when we would drink tea or coffee. For years I'd go over to her apartment every Friday morning. We'd have a muffin she had made, drink a cup of Constant Comment tea in one of these cups, and then we'd go to the grocery store together. She got to where she cut back on her muffin eating. I would eat two or three, and she would eat one. Then she would cut them in half and eat one-half. Then she wouldn't finish the half. That is a scary trend and doesn't lead to a happy place.
The pattern is Octagon White Ironstone and seems to have come from Sears, although I don't remember where they got it. So long ago. Many fond memories involving these cups.
