My grandmother had these cups. I started drinking coffee at grandmothers at the age of 9 ( with lots of cream and sugar). Over the years I drank a lot of coffee at my grandmothers.
She, and my grandfather, always had coffee going. When you arrived at their house you were always greeted with "are you hungry?" and/or "do you want a cup of coffee?"
I never thought to take a picture of the cups with the coffee, nor the crochet doilies (just like this one in the photo). Wish I had. Cameras (with film) just weren't used like they are now. I do like digital, it makes everything so easy and makes everything so important to document.
Christmas was always at my grandparents house. I loved Christmas .....
I hope that my grandchildren will say they loved Christmas at their grandparents house.
