Still Lovely to Me

A silver compote more tarnished these days than silver, was always on my mother's table.
Sentimental to me and displayed with love. I found a little nest to top it off perfectly.



I love the brown transferware with the little blue eggs.


My mother always had plastic fruit in it. Remember those days? I think the little nest fits better.

I think that the nest looks very sweet on there. A very special piece to remind you of your mother.
