Visit with Mom: Day 72

by Julie March. 30, 2008 2749 views

After searching relentlessly and thinking over the pros and cons of a variety of kitchen tables, my Mom finally bought herself one. She even went so far as to have a glass top made to protect it. You have to understand, she is not one for spontaneous or impulsive purchases. Unfortunately, I did not inherit this trait from her.

When taking photos of her new pride and joy, I came across a piece of china that belonged to my late grandmother - “mimi.”
I loved it's delicate look and included in today's photographs.

Have a wonderful week!

What a beautiful piece of china!!! :) Gorgeous. My mum has a little collection of china cups - perhaps I should photograph them one day :D
Really nice choice on the table too - does she have a small space to work with? (as oldbabe has noted, looks like bar stools and a higher table).

Oh, love the china! I'm surprised mom chose what looks like a tall table and stools. She must be fit enough to get up and down from those, huh !! Good for her!

Love the table centerpiece too!

Very nice. Let your Mom know I gave my OKAY (smile). The tea cup is so delicate -one must drink out of something pretty my moms says.

I really like the table, especially the glass top. I'm partial to that sort of thing too. ;)

The teacups remind me of the collection my mother has inherited from her mother and grandmother also.

Love the natural light in the first shot (I'm such a fan of natural light vs flash)...the new table seems to suit her kitchen :-)
I love old-fashioned teacups, they hold so much charm.

That is a really cool table. I like the color and shape a lot.
Those tea cup shots are great. They really show the delicate nature of the cup!
