The Marquis of Queensbury

Just a few things here.. 
Mainly from the Dump Shop and Vinnies..

MIDWINTER stuff is usually a winner for me. 
I am never surprised 
when I pick something funky up 
written underneath! 

And look at the price!

 Cute little trio of saucers.

Some great little 10c egg cups. I recon most people my age would remember a stack of egg cups like that.

JOHNSON plates.
I love the way they have a raised rim. No peas sliding off those ones!
(Have you seen Zara's collection in my linky? OMG!!!!)

I love these little handpainted plates. 3 of them. Side plates. $1

Decals before they were called decals!
More plastic-pretending-to-be-glass trays.

This was the type of little book Great Aunts would send us on our birthdays when we were kids. SO cute!

Arlo wanting to be in on the action.

Gratuitous Arlo photo.
He is ONE on THursday.

Hopefully one of the last photos of my hair before I change the colour of it.
And I mean CHANGE!
(AFter a rainy excursion)

Happy Days!

Got a Collection?!

What a great haul! I need to get more plates in our stock. The ones I bought a few years ago are now chipped. At least they're being used.

Kids grow up so quick. I still remember my younger brother being born and in November he's going to be 20. Crazy.

Yep, Midwinter's always a winner with me too - love that Madeira pattern in the first pic, and that is a total bargain!! Can't believe Arlo's nearly 1, that has whizzed by - he's such a cutie! xx

Love a bit of Midwinter, and the Johnson plates remind me of my youth!
