      That’s called ‘quaich’. It’s gift by a friend from Scotland. It’s a kind of a traditional drinking glass 🙂 I at times, use it as a prop 😛

    Ahhh…such beautiful and calm pictures. Love the mood you were able to capture. I especially like to vintage cutlery – where did you get them from? I have such a hard time finding things like that…

      These spoons I bought from Kolkata, India 🙂 I think the shop called these antique queen spoons or something like that.
