Confessions of a chinaholic.

A pretty rose bud just for you.
Now, you know I have a passion for china. You know I might have slightly too much for a small family of three. But I know you're too nice to say it. So that's why I am going to share with you my latest find....
Yep! A whole laundry basket full of blue ....
It all washed up beautifully!
Mmm yum!
Two new backstamps for my flickr group...
This one is completely new to me ...
A pretty little rope twist edge.
So you see, there was a very good reason to buy that big basket. One little tea plate out of the blue. Does that cover it? Do I get to keep the china? Don't worry about where. I'll find somewhere to hide it.
You see? Forgotten already! t.x

Roaring with laughter, absolutely hilarious! I would go in this direction: "These old things darling? Why, I've had them for AGES, don't you listen to ANYTHING I say?????" ............" x
