Tuesday's Treasure - 21st present

Growing up there are people who make such an impact on your life that you never forget them. This gorgeous tea set was given to me by Grandma and Grandpa Conway for my 21st. They were not even my own grandparents but I loved them dearly. Grandpa Conway was in his 90's and read my tea leaves after school on my visits. He told the most thrilling stories of his adventures as a merchant sailor. Grandma would make me bacon and eggs. Those are beautiful memories I hope to keep for ever.
