Grandmother Tea

Recently, I gave my boss a grandmother tea.  She was about to be a brand new grandmother, and know, grandmother "stuff".  Really, it's just an excuse to have a little party and honor someone who deserves to be honored!

It was a very small gathering, just our office staff and her daughter. 

I served everything buffet style, and took the opportunity to use my real depression and "new" depression glass. 

The real depression glass is the Green Cameo Ballerina. I danced many years of my life, and have a degree that enables me to teach dance in public school...although I only student taught and substituted at a magnet school for a short time. So...anything with ballerinas catches my eye.  When I first saw this, I knew I'd be collecting it. 

The "new" depression glass is the Pink Madrid.  Although it's not real depression glass, it is about 20 years old. I also used some pink milk glass that I bought years ago.

I bought the teapot at an estate sale.  It's Homer Laughlin...but I'm not sure of the pattern.

It was also a great time to use my embroidery machine.  Baby, parents, and "Honey"...which by the way is also MY grandmother name...are doing well!
