Day 160/366

It's off to work I go and meeting my daily photo challenge becomes more and more difficult.
So here is a photo from earlier in the week which showcases some beautiful teaspoons Mr Honey Pie's Mum passed down.
They are from Holland and each teaspoon's stem is a also a flower stem with bud head.
There is a viole(viooltje), lily of the valley (lelietjes vd) clover (klaver), poppy (papaver), rose (roos), and of course the tulip (tulp).
These are just a few of the beautiful teaspoons she left us.
When I was becoming acquainted with Mr Honey Pie, way back in the late 1960s, I was intrigued with the quaint silverware his family used daily.
Their cups of tea were a ritual and the teaspoons were really only used to stir the tea.  Sugar was spooned in to the cups with what I knew to be a teaspoon but after that this tiny bowled spoon was placed into each saucer and used to stir what was the best cup of tea I'd ever tasted.
Just like the British, the Dutch know how to make a good cup of tea.


  1. They are beautiful!! Love the shot!! I'm so behind on the daily pictures:(

  2. They are so pretty. I love the ritual of a pot of tea and all the accompaniments:)
