I've got a lovely pair of...

...hand painted cups from Japan.
I know you cant see it, but the dragons are raised on the plate (he's just waiting for a phoenix to drop by).
They were a gift from Bee last time she came by.

Beautiful! This reminds me that I need to clean out my parents basement and find my tea set I inherited from my Grandma. It was made in Japan during WWII...her boyfriend at the time traded the $20 and a pack of cigarettes for it.

Very, very cool! I've never seen anything quite like that and the colour choices are unusual.

I have a blogger friend who's nuts about dragons, she would love it!
