Visiting Winterthur

The September/October 2014 issue of Tea Time magazine has a six page article about eight places to have tea in Michigan, and some of them I've blogged about.  If you don't have a copy yet, get one today!

In the same issue is a three-page article on Winterthur Museum - the mansion of Henry Francis du Pont, written by Bruce Richardson, contributing editor for Tea Time Magazine, and owner of Elmwood Inn Fine Teas.

Presently on display at the museum are the Costumes of Downton Abbey.  Bright and early tomorrow morning three friends and I will be traveling to Winterthur.  It's a trip I've been looking forward to.  I'll be taking another blogging break while I'm away, but promise to settle into a consistent blogging routine when I return.  I'll be sure to tell you all about my trip!


  1. Have a wonderful time! I did recognize a few places in the magazine as spots I had read about here.

  2. Phyllis, Thank you for mentioning my article about Winterthur. Jane Pettigrew and I both agreed that they have the largest collection of exceptional tea things in America, maybe even better than the V&A!

  3. I've heard some other friends discuss Winterthur. I would love to go some day!

  4. Can't wait to read all about your travels and experiences!

  5. I definitely thought of you when I saw the Michigan spread in this issue. Eager to hear more about your trip!
