In 2004 I was a Sandy Clough tea lady - an independent distributor for Sandy's products sold at home parties. Sandy is first and foremost an artist and author, but for a brief time she designed china for tea parties.
One of the loveliest items in my kit was a red tartan plaid tea set called "Merry Christmas," and I have service for ten. I blogged about a tea party I hosted using the china here.
Some of Sandy's china was sold by Harvest House before she started her own business, and below is the teapot and teacups illustrated on the book cover, The 12 Teas of Christmas.
There was probably a cream and sugar to accompany the teapot, as well as luncheon plates, but I've never been able to find them. I was happy to find two teacups and saucers and the teapot.
The same picture on the book cover was made into Christmas cards, which I sent to family and friends a few years back.
