  7. I really like that english tea urn 1900 , Nancy!...and started thinking that I would place it in the centre of the kitchen table with ice cold water...and every now and again, I would get my refill to quench the summer thirst! BTW, Was that work desk set up with a big mirror? That would be a big distraction from work...don't you think so?? I probably wouldn't be able to calculate the abacus properly if my beauty constantly disturbs me LOL ;P It's wonderful to see old antiques...thank you for sharing:)
