When my mother passed away I inherited many things including a lovely Polish tea set. I began hosting a tea each year to honor this set my mother never once used in her live. I have this firm believe that our actions give things purpose and meaning. It would be tragic to break a tea cup or saucer but it seems almost more tragic to lock the tea set up in a cabinet on display. Sure it has purpose on display but it is a tea set mean to entertain people. My friends Michelle and Greg were kind enough to lend me their photos capturing our fun little tea and croquet gathering to welcome the Spring.
