Yes, Why does my heart skip when I find an old jug without its handle............I can see myself right now, heart racing reaching over to gently pick up the very old and very unloved jug with its handle missing and a chip or two. They are rare yes! they are! you see in this sad condition they will find their way to the rubbish tip and it is not often you can find one at all. But here is my latest find a beautiful jug hand painted roses on the front and back a beautiful piece and now it is loved again and has found another use in my home as a lovely vase filled with fresh flowers I can almost hear this little jug saying "thank you"
Old pieces to me are so wonderful and they have so much yet to give who would think an old jug with no handle could give so much happiness. The beauty these pieces hold is once again taking pride of place in my home.
I just would love to know their history, who had them before me, what they were used for.
My other find this week was this lovely green mix and match set just purfect! for an afternoon tea with friends. the trios are Noritake and the cake plate is Royal staffordshire china but you would think they were ment for each other. The soft aqua green on both are a true match and so these little old pieces have now come together to fill a corner of my home and next time I have a visitor drop by for a cuppa and a chat I think these lovely pieces will find their way to the table.
