Collecting Tea Cards

This section has been recently added to the wesite, so I had to get my fountain pen out again and add a belated intoduction. My husband was an avid tea card collector before he passed away – a habit he carried from childhood, but that's men for you. The upshot is that I was cleaning out the cupboard under the stairs when I came across a great number of albums stuffed with colourful cards, which to be honest, are a mess. When I was a young girl I collected just the albums, which I kept neat and flat, refusing all efforts to get me to paste in the tiresome cards that make the albums go all lumpy – particularly if you used water based glue, or worse, made your own glue from flour and water. Anyway, I have passed on my husband's material to our designer, who never even thanked me for the idea, let alone the cards. I'll have to have a word with his Mother.
