Years ago, when I was living and working in Houston and before I
married David, my office was very close to the Galleria. If I did not
have a business luncheon I would often spend my lunch hour shopping.
At that time Marshall Field's was still in existence and both Field's and
Lord & Taylor had large stores in the Galleria. Both stores were old
favorites of mine. I loved Marshall Field's from my youth while
growing up in a Chicago suburb, and Lord & Taylor from my time
spent in NY.
This particular shopping trip I was looking for a gift for my Mom and
found this adorable blue and white teapot and cup for one and a
matching salad plate. It was the perfect gift for my Mom since she
collected blue and white pieces and knew she did not have anything
quite like this.
The cup sits on top of the teapot for storage.
It also has its own lid for steeping the tea.
Such a sweet design and a bit of a departure from her usual Asian
I found napkins from Williams Sonoma recently that I think work very well
with this ensemble. I just never get tired of blue and white. It's so fresh and
crisp and clean looking. Timeless.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
