Friday - Show and Tell over at Kelli's
Although I'm participating in this week's Show and Tell, I am away until tomorrow evening so I won't be able to post your comments or check out your show and tells until my return. Please leave a comment - it will be lonely without you!
This is a pair of small jugs I got at the Car Boot Sale last week. I collect Crinoline lady china and I collect jugs, so these ticked two boxes! They're in perfect condition and even though there wasn't room to fit even a wee Crinoline Lady on the tiny jug, it's still sweet.
As you can see, they fit in well with the other two jugs I have of that pattern. They live on the slate slab on the half landing going up to the attic. A perfect place for china collections . . .
A couple more pieces of Crinoline Lady china, bought many years ago at auction. I love the Wisteria trailing on the little vase to the left.
Click on the photos to enlarge them, so you can see the design properly.
Lastly, someone requested a picture of my oak corner cupboard and last week's plates in place:
The corner cupboard is an old one and should stand on a matching stand, but when we bought it, covered in chicken feathers (and worse!) the base was no longer with it. The bottom half is hidden behind our sofa and it contains some of my crafting materials. Between the two plates is a little glass candle holder which throws out pretty colours through the glass when the candle's lit.
