A Photo a Week Challenge: Delicate



Despite its delicate appearance this teacup (which was my Nana’s) has survived numerous earthquakes in two different cities over the past eight years.

Office buildings I was working in both in Christchurch and Wellington have not been so lucky and were so extensively damaged that they had to be demolished.

  1. Beautiful and delicate. Lovely photo. Thanks for joining the challenge!

  2. Beautiful tea-cup.. Bone China.. I can remember my nan having a set something like this. I still have my mums set up on top of the kitchen cupboard. I can remember in my nan’s it only came out when the Vicar arrived or for weddings and funerals. All other times it was packed in the back of the cupboard in newspaper.
