Pretty things.

Last week I bought this leather cuff bracelet from one of my favorite local shops. It's made of rose quartz and garnets.

And I gave my mom this pretty little teacup and saucer that I found while thrifting a while ago. It was one of those times where the teacup was in one place and the saucer in another. She likes hummingbirds. One side has a hummingbird...

...and the other has a parrot or parakeet or some such bird. Obviously, I'm not well-versed in birds. I can identify a Cardinal (I should, since it's the Illinois state bird!) Blue Jay, Hummingbird, and Red-Winged Blackbird. That's probably about it. Though, I did see a Pheasant crossing the road the other day! Wait a minute, I've also seen hawks around here. Maybe I know birds than I think I do!

Anyway, as soon as I gave the set to her my mom had to have a nice cup of Earl Grey. If you know what the yellow and blue bird is on the cup, please leave me a comment.
