Inspiration 30: The Family Silver

2015/01/img_0074.jpg

For generations people used the family silver everyday for tea. They served each other and guests using this cherished heirloom. Precious information, stories, and planning occurred while consuming hot brown water. I enjoy these types of heirlooms because they make me recall the people, places and lives that were formed around such a beautiful liquid delivery system.

Next time you pick up a family heirloom or hand me down, take a moment to appreciate those who have gone before you in using that item. If teapots could talk, oh the storied they could tell!
