Be Still

Tea Party




I've shared this photo before. But it has been a while. My father made this table out of a piece of circular wood and jars screwed on for legs. I remember him making it. Then, my mother covered it for our tea party. It looks like a big tea party, but I remember these arriving early, Vicky Cox (cousin), Debby Duncan (neighborhood bestie), me, and Lisa Harder (neighborhood friend and classmate). I think the woman in the door is my father's sister, Fay Dayton Cox.

I have some of this tea set, but not all of it. I'm sure it was broken through the years. My parents did not do a lot of extras for us kids, but when they celebrated our birthdays or Christmas, they made us smile.
