This was my Aunt Tene, (she was my Great Aunt) she worked for Pope and Turner when I was growing up. She had some of the finest furnishing in the land, and I loved growing up at their house. She loved to paint porcelain china and I credit her for my artistic abilities. After she accomplished her porcelains, she took up quilting and did a beautiful job of that as well. I miss her!
