A Collection? What Collection?

 Who said anything about a collection?

 

It started with this from Stonham Barns boot sale in  September 2017 - the best bargain of the lot

Then this from  the Hospice  charity shop in December of the same year


Followed by this tea plate from Needham-Market boot sale a year later

These were a gift  for Christmas 2018

and in May 2019 I found this, again at Needham Market Boot sale

And guess what - another bit - or actually 2 bits were in the glass display cabinet of the charity shop on Saturday, these were the most expensive of the lot, and I don't know what came over me!

 

This had better be the end of my NOT a collection!

Back Tomorrow

  5. Years ago I can remember buying a beautiful Christmas plate from York Christmas market.It was from a second hand vintage stall and I fell in love with it.Within about 10 mins of buying it,I had dropped my bags at my Husbands feet to dash to the public toilets...and broke it!.I was gutted.Yours are beautiful!!,xx

  9. I've got a couple of bits too Sue - the gravy jug and the (boxed) comport/cake stand, plus a long roulade-shaped plate. Car boot bargains of course!

    I am now having to take a long hard look at my collection (I admit it!) of jugs on the beams and wondering how hard to prune it as no beams at our next house (though there is a thin bit of wood across the kitchen which I "could" adapt . . . though we were thinking of hanging a string of Herefordshire Hops across it instead .. .)

  10. Quality always wins and Portmeirion oozes quality. Getting it bit by bit when you see it isn't too bad or too expensive either. Enjoy.

  13. Oh it won't be the end, before you know it an teeny weeny egg cup will appear and then a side plate, a gorgeously shaped mug and it will go on and on. But it's beautiful so your 'not a collection' is a very good little collection really :-)

    My collection looking at what I've just moved with appears to be food and bedding ... I'm swamped!!

  14. It's nice to get these out at Christmas - I have only got a couple and always on the lookout for a few more.

  15. A very nice design. I used to collect Eternal Beau crockery. I kept it in the cupboard while I used all kinds of odd plates and bowls. Now the posh stuff is in daily use.

    1. It's meant to be used and loved. Face it, if we aren't good enough for our best, who is?

  16. Lovely choices. It need not be called a collection just an updating of your dinner service.

  17. It's all beautiful! If it makes you happy then it is worth it. And it's fun to add to something like that when you just happen to run across a piece.

    I picked up three pieces of Blue Willow at an antique market last weekend, a small plate along with a cup & saucer - just for my use!

  21. Suffering from herpes is a Terrible Experience which I suffered till I met a herbal doctor called Dr. KHAM. I tried all possible means to get cured but I never received cure from any of the 7 hospitals I visited.Just March,14,2018 I saw a recent post of how Dr. Kham herbal medicine cured people and that he is a honest man to work with in the procedures on finding a cure, then i contacted him in trial and he sent me a herbal medicine with the full prescription oh how to drink for two weeks and i exactly followed the guidelines that was given to me by DR. KHAM to cute the long story short the herbal medicine flushed out my whole system and make the herpes virus inactive all thanks to Dr. Kham who God is using to cure people of this terrible virus (herpes simplex virus) for anyone here that has herpes or other kinds of disease and Virus should mail all his or her complain to DR. KHAM on his email which is (dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com) or whats app him on +2348159922297  and you can get in touch with him on his website:https://drkhamherbalhealingcenter.wordpress.com/   or https://drkhamcaregiver.wixsite.com/drkhamcaregiverherba

  22. Herbal treatment is 100% guarantee for HSV cure, the reason why most people are finding it difficult to cure HSV is because they believe on medical report, drugs and medical treatment which is not helpful to cure HSV. Natural roots/herbs are the best remedy which can easily eradicate herpes forever. You can contact (Dr Lucky) he is capable of doing it WhatsApp/Call: +2348154637647  or email him: drluckyherbalcure@gmail.com him Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/pg/drluckyherbalcu/about/
