Yesterday I just had to clean floors and dust and in the meantime I wanted to bake a lemon cake which is one of my favorite. So as I whipped up the cake and got it in the oven I kept cleaning. I would rather do yard work than housework any day. It's always great when the dust and dirt is gone, however.
This is a teapot my Mother told me she had before I was born. It's a Hall teapot. I got the pretty cups and saucers and snack plates at a Marshall's years ago.
I had never thought to put this set together Mom's old tea pot and my calico set, here's another thing do you like cold cake or room temperature cake? I always like a cold cake so put my lemon cake in the refrigerator.
I use to collect these vintage tea spoons for loose tea and still use them. I still look for them when I got to large antique malls. I have a couple more
Oh by the way it tasted so good with my cup hot tea LOL wish you were here to have a piece
Linky parties I joined in for fun of it
