Our home is fairly dark in some areas, one being the dining room. Partly because outside the window is a large cupboard storing some of my supplies :)
We've been having a few wind storms lately - (not the red dust poor Sydney has been getting, just gale force winds). And two of these storms ripped off panels of the fibreglass roofing we had outside the dining room. Talk about turning on the lights!
I'd walk in there, and it was like someone had turned on the lights! Fantastic! This only lasted until we had the panels replaced with new polycarbonate stuff, but while it lasted, I took the opportunity to photograph my china dresser to share it with you.
I've been collecting lots of mis-matched china pieces for a long time now - it's bursting with them! I only collect the really special ones now... (like those sweet Victorian souvenir cups "Forget me not" etc)
Most of my teacup sets are trios. I always thought it was interesting that sellers on ebay in the US would sell duo sets and not trios? Penny commented once how she liked that I had the dish too, but this is actually normal for us here. If we don't get the dish, it's like it's missing something. I'm thinking it's the same in the UK, am I right? We tend to do a lot of what the British do, since we're a penal colony and all (LOL!)
No point in saving it for something special - what could be more special than having a cup of tea, any day of your life? Every day is special. Plus, tea tastes better in china. It does!
I love Fenton too.... like that ruffled vase... oh gosh I love it!
And Limoges china - like the cute little demitasse cup and saucer above... and Austrian, Bavarian and English china.... And Japanese too - like the bolder pink one above on the left!
Hope you enjoyed the peek at my dresser - I'll have to share my fave china pieces with you one day.
See you next time,
