Take a Word - China

This is after the style of Jacub Gagnon.   My mother's "Sunday dishes" came from Montgomery Ward, but Sunday table was always set on crisp white table linen.   I followed in her footsteps, and fine china was not part of my home either, but the tradition of family together at dinnertime was honored in my home as well.   I have fond memories of the sit-down Sunday dinners with family gathered all around.  Somehow, on Sunday there was always time for church before the big Sunday dinners which were served promptly at noon.  Whatever happened to that tradition anyway?

  11. After centuries of use the teapot has gone out of favour which is a pity. Australians vowed that they would never take up the new-fangled teabag when it first emerged but, of course, they did. I have some teapots hidden away including one commemorating the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana (given to me as a joke).
    Bev - your picture is gorgeous, especially the most beautiful teapot. Love the Gagnon style.
