E Elegant Object You Own
China tea-pot that my mother brought me from England. It's white with a cluster of violets on it. Since then a dear friend gave me a coordinating-but-not-matching tea-cup and saucer to go with it, and then later my mother gave me yet a different coordinating-but-not-matching cup-and-saucer. I love my eclectic tea set!
violets, pansies, roses, daisies
