Notice the Star on the Early American Prescut Crystal Water Glass
This pattern some people call the Star of David,
 A lot of visitors to my website come just to see my Early American Precut Crystal Collection
I have many, many pieces of this Crystal, I also have some of the rarest finds, the paneled bowl,
 the chip and dip collection, the Tea Glasses, and 10 inch plates with no ring.
 Some of my Treasured EPA Crystal I showed back in April at my Daughter Reception.
How I would love to find the coal oil lamp

I just love this little serving spoon

Place card for my Friend Melba from Brandon, Mississippi
Can you see the little white bird salt shaker? The famous white shakers we all fell in love with, when Susan at Between Naps On The Porch showed her set from Target!
Close up View:
Don’t you just love the huge oak trees in the background?
I painted the old ladder back chairs gentleman’s blue,
 and tore strips of fabric and wove the chair seats fifteen years ago.

My iron table set covered with the white crocheted tablecloth my sister, Doris gave me last Christmas, she bought from a garage sale.
Centerpiece: EAP Crystal bowl floating pink roses
I wish the rose bush was blooming, behind the table!
This bush is always covered and starts blooming in February and blooms up until the first snow.
My husband Aunt gave this most fragrant bush to me.
In the background is an oak tree stump, I love to give an outdoor Tea on.
For our 25th Wedding Anniversary, I made a replica of my Wedding Dress, 
we got married at a JP Office. Terry and I as of now have been married 34 years. 
Today I am wearing this white dress as a Day Dress for Tea!
