I am so excited to be sharing today in my very first Tuesday Tea post! This beauty is a memory gone by. I HAD the entire vintage circa 1970 collection of Johnson Brothers Friendly Village, eight piece place setting and all the extras over 25 years, including the stemware. It is a long story as to how I lost it and that is for another day! Ah, the memories of all the tea I made in that little pot of mine! Each piece had a different season of the year.
I bought the collection when I was only 16 with my sis' and bff Vanessa. She was shopping for her pattern as well, recently engaged in 1970. Throughout the next 20 some years my now deceased husband and his mom or I would add to the service every holiday and special occasion. I guess I had over $1500 worth of VINTAGE pattern, not the reproduced ones here. They are still lovely though and some day I just might repurchase it!
My favorite poem was on a little plaque my mom had in her kitchen...
A Spot of Tea
Come into my kitchen
and chat with me,
Whilst I prepare
a pot of tea..
This isn't my kitchen but it is me chatting!
