Last saturday morning I joined a bunch of people from church to clean up our hall. After crawling under the stage to clean out all the junk and sweep all the little 'gifts' left by the bugs, I moved to the kitchen. The brief was clear out the teacups and keep all the mugs (the plan is to make our hall a drop-in centre for teenagers and it was decided they would not appreciate the floral china!) These 3 pieces made it home with me. The Lotte cup is in perfect condition. How long it has lived in the back of a cupboard unused is anyones guess. A quick internet search revealed how gorgeous the artist's work is.
