Do you love violets? I do. It's still early for violets here in New Jersey, but I thought I would anticipate the season a little with some china ones.
And some embroidered ones. :)
The tea cup was made in Japan, and belonged to my mother. I found the handkerchief in the thrift store. It is embroidered by hand, and the lace edging is sewn on by hand also. I decided to show it as a napkin here, although to be perfectly honest, I don't know if I could bear to actually use it.
I raised the tea cup up on an antique book. Can you see a bit of the beautiful gilded cover?
I used a white embroidered linen napkin to line the basket tray. The tray itself came from Target.
A purple primrose is placed in a pierced creamware basket.
The tarnished silver tea pot was another thrift store find. I think I paid $7. for it. The silver creamer also came from the thrift store.
