The vintage green with black rim enamel ware, well what can I say! this old fashioned lady just loves it. What about the old Fowler preserving or bottling outfit the colour and rustic look makes it a gem to me.
I like to sit here first thing on a summer morning with a hot cup of tea and think about my family and how lucky I am.
This morning I took another gentle look at this lovely book and for morning tea I shared a plate of (4) :o) Walkers Cinnamon shortbread rings with myself.
I have just discovered these beautiful biscuits yummo!
O! and mum look at my new little vintage bird plate I just know you will love this one.
We have such a lot of lovely Artists on blogger, Janet comes to mind now and there are many others I enjoy visiting but while artist I am not I do very much enjoy the way you can display vintage plate chips like this little design of mine.
We have them in our garden every time we dig so to discover another little piece is always a thrill for me. They may have been in the soil for almost 100 years but cleaned up they look as good as new.
This close up is of the display I have done on a piece of marble we found in our back paddock many years ago and it now sits on top of an old singer sewing machine legs......top photo. I display plates outside as well the big roast platter was my great grand mothers and I am sure some of these plate chips came from one very similar.
I hope you are all having a lovely day or evening and may your day be filled with the knowledge that little corners of your garden are not grey but flow over with such happiness as does mine.
This is my Monday........in my garden!! :o)
