This is my favourite tea cup. It was my Nanna's tea cup - Edna Casey - and is one of the only things I have of hers, which makes it even more special. Tea always tastes better from this cup.
I loved my Nanna; she was fun and cute and everyone called her 'Little Ed'. I have been having fun the last few years researching my family history using ancestry.com and have found out all sorts of interesting things about my Nanna's lineage. She was brought up in northern England, her grandfather was Prussian/German (Danzig) and her grandmother English, traced all the way back to the 1500's. Her grandmother sadly died in WWII when a bomb landed on her house, just 10 minutes after my Nanna had stopped in for a cup of tea.
I guess that cup of tea was lucky for me!
