POST FROM THE PAST....
It was warm enuf to think of having an
OUTSIDE FALL TEA PHOTO SHOOT
and that's just what I did.
I put my vintage flatware into my beautiful little
antique pitcher that my Aunt Lillian gave to me so so many years ago.

Liberty Blue dishes were designed and sold to commemorate America's 1976 Bicentennial (200th anniversary) celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
This blue and white Staffordshire ironstone features different historical scenes.
Some of the historic occasions depicted on the china are: Washington crossing the Delaware, Lafayette landing at West Point, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere on horseback, Old North Church, Ben Franklin, Mt.

I fell totally and forever in love and have collected every since.
O, yes indeed....
a glorious day for an AUTUMN TEA.
