Sepia Saturday give bloggers an opportunity to share their family history and memories through photographs.
Hats were an obvious choice for me with this week's prompt, but I had featured head ware last year, so opted instead for the teatime theme.
An Edwardian picnic?
I remember this copper kettle (below) sitting in the hearth of my grandfather's house and was always led to believe it was his mother's - my great grandmother Maria Danson, nee Rawcliffe. I was absolutely delighted when it eventually passed down to me.
Complementing the kettle is this tea-set, which, (according to her granddaughter), Maria acquired by collecting coupons from a newspaper offer.
