Yesterday, my mother told me she wanted to show me something. She directed me to go bring something from the store room. When I brought it and opened it, it was pots and a frying pan, just like these:
Then she asked me to get another carton from her bed side. It was plates in lovely colours, just like these:
Then she went to her room herself and came back with a beautiful lace material, it looked and felt expensive. This material is close to what that one looks like:
