MOTHER’S CHEST OF DRAWERS
This was my dear Mother’s chest of drawers and in it I keep the beautiful table linen I inherited from her. Some of the items I do believe, she too inherited from her Mother.
Mum always set her table with a white cotton lace edged cloth. Her personal tray for afternoon tea would be set with an embroidered cloth and napkin and she always drank tea from a china cup and saucer.
Going through the drawers brings back so many fond memories, just seeing and touching these everyday items of her life. I regularly use these cloths and enjoy seeing the family gathered around my table, as we once gathered around hers.
