Things for drinking

The name of my crystal pattern is "Thistle."  This is probably because there are thistles etched into the glass.  I liked etched glass.  You can see the strange reflections from the pot lights over and behind my head.

Moving in a little closer ...

There was a plant and an oak chair behind the glass; you can see the traces of colour from those things.

I bought myself a single service tea cup, made by Bodum.  It is not a mug; it's a handblown glass.  I had a cup of Twinings Honeybush, Mandarin and Orange Tea on the weekend.
