Tuesdays Treasures

Today I wanted to share this lovely tea set I was given by my Husbands great aunt Bessie ,this was left to me in her will along with the other dishes in this little cabinet . These dishes once belonged to Jane Cameron who is a descendant of my husband and they were purchased in Winnipeg when her husband was an engineer for the railroad in the early 1900's.They are very delicate which is why I didn't want to take them out to take the picture ,the back of the cabinet has a mirror so you can see my camera reflexion . I feel very privileged to own these dishes along with all the others in this china cabinet . Thanks to Melody of The House on the Side of the Hill  for hosting Tuesdays Treasures and to see more treasures head on over to visit here. 
I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and thanks for stopping by. Sheila
