In the basement of the museum [where the tea was held] is a small gift shop.
Even though I've been repeatedly saying the shelves in my living room are filled to capacity, I continue to see things I can't resist. Last Sunday I saw a blue transferware demitasse cup by Copeland. There are no demitasse cups on the shelves, so I had to get it! It's identical to some red transferware demitasse cups I already have.
It was only $10, and I figured the money would help the Macomb County Historical Society.
It fit perfectly on the shelf as though the space was meant for it!
The tea served last Sunday - Three Wives - was blended exclusively for Crocker House Museum, by Harney & Sons, so I purchased a tin. It's a black tea with crystallized ginger.
When I inquired about the name, Three Wives Tea, I was told Mayor Crocker had three wives! They must have needed a caffeine boost to keep up with him! ;-)
Um, Um Good!
