In serving tea, the table should be arranged before any visitors arrive. It s cover may be a linen tea cloth embroidered or trimmed with lace, while the cups ad saucers, with the spoon resting in each saucer, the thin slices of lemon, the small wafers, cakes or sandwiches on plates or pretty doilies, should be artistically arranged upon it. The tea kettle should be in its place, the teapot just in front of it. The cream pitcher and sugar bowl should be within convenient reach. If the hostess pours the tea, she allows the guest to put in the sugar and cream for themselves. If she expects any visitors, then there will be wisdom in asking a friend to pour tea for her. An excerpt from Mrs. Dunwoody's Excellent Instructions.
House wife of 17 almost 18 years I have learned alot. I have also struggled alot. I have tried to be a Martha, and I have tried to be a Mary. What I have found in my journey is I am just plain old me. Join me in my continued journey to follow the path that God has laid out before me.
