This week's Illustration Friday, Tea, brought an almost instant inspiration. I remembered my grandmothers, who had been friends before my parents married, having the "girls" over on Thursdays. They played bridge regularly and ruthlessly for change and some. They took turns hosting and served tea and desert in the most civilized way. I inherited my maternal grandmother Isla's desert plates. I'm sure many,many bridge tea party goodies were served on these plates.
