I've learned a few things in the 23 years that I've been married to Joan's son... I know she loves blue  I know she loves tea  I know she loves dishes (esp with blue prints)  I know she loves anything handmade So I decided to make her a custom coaster with a pretty blue and white teacup and saucer on it, along with her initial. She's had a strong influence on my own love of blue and white dishes !
