Vintage treasures fill my heart.


I am a collector of vintage china.........there I have said it!. I am now saying to the world I collect! treasure! and I often sit and wonder just who used these pieces before me. Did they enjoy a chatter as we do today or did they get tucked into the back of a china cabinet never to see the light of day and just gather dust, I just hope upon hope the first case is true they are ment to be used to hold in the hands and sip from or to take a tiny cake from or just set a table for all to enjoy.

Very much like the wonder of a family that you treasure.

One of our daughter's a mother of two herself had to go into hospital over night this week and when she came back to her home and family her worlds were filled with the joy and happiness for her family, about her never taking for granted each and every day and yes even how lucky she was when others have had no luck at all. life like vintage china is such a treasure to be enjoyed each and every day

I am blessed and also reminded each day just how much beauty, be it a china cup or a grandchild fills our lives. yes we are lucky!

May your day be be filled with many dreams that will come true.

Hi Lee Ann,
Glad to see you have added another post to your blog, and a lovely photo as well. I was getting a bit worried when you hadn't posted any more, but now I've read about your daughter's problems, I understand why you may not have had time before. I think you will have your own 'fan club' of bloggers very soon, if you put some more photos of your china on here! Like my linen, you have plenty to choose from!
