Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Final week of the Hospital-i-Tea Blog A Thon




I'm running late again.. Last week, La Te Dah wanted us to post a pic of a special teapot in our home. I posted photos of my other teapots back in April very early on in the Blogathon, so I won't repeat them here. But back then I'd forgotten about my most precious teapot, which is never used because it has a crack in it. Ken's mum gave me this teapot many years ago. It had been in her family for a long time; I must ask her how old it is! Some time later, an elderly friend gave me the little jug. I'd shown her the teapot and she said "I've got a jug somewhere that matches it - you may as well have it!" These sit on display in our buffet in the dining room.

So pretty and so unique! How wonderful that the lady gave you the additional piece. I really like the red colored band.

Very beautiful! And in all your searching around for antique linens, you might just come across the sugar bowl for the set as well. I love it's old fashioned look and shape.
