Last Thursday, Willow prompted the Magpie Tales cadre with a picture of a porcelain cup, depicting the 1937 English coronation of King George, filled with sharpened pencils. I posted my response earlier than usual knowing that I would be too busy over the weekend the spend much time blogging.
When I arrived home from Syracuse Friday evening, my wife showed me that we too had a similar memento of the same event pictured on a porcelain creamer. Ours was inherited by us from our home's previous owners when we bought their house completely furnished, in the 1940's style, back in 1975.
I suppose I could fill it with sharpened pencils also.
