I have this restlessness on me !!!!
How to obtain UK market and car boot sales china????
Tell ones sister frequently that one misses the car boot sales and markets we used to go to together lots and lots .... and lo and behold when said sister and sisters come on a surprise visit (read about it here) one acquires fantastic presents like these:
from Reesvby Village ,Lincolnshire, car boot sale sometime end of May
France 1930s Cheese dish. There is a mark inside but I can't quite make it out. No matter I love it!
I have looked and looked here for a china cheese dish and not found one. I am thrilled with this one!!!! Nice and big too.
Midwinter Burslem Jug and sugar bowl
Have I ever told you I collect china jugs? Strange!!! you haven't heard? I thought I had told everyone by now!!!
Royal Doulton Gravy Boat
Art Deco Roslyn China Marigold Hand painted Tea plates x 6
These beauties are very fine...wafer thin too.
These were all the car boot sale finds for me ......... I had a glorious time unwrapping them all and today I had a great time again, washing them all and drying them and admiring them and.......Have you seen Oliver Twist??? Do you remember Fagin and the way he would rub his hands grinning and drooling over his booty. If you can remember that scene then you can visualize what I do as I contemplate my hoard of china!!!
BUT I haven't finished yet!!! This was my birthday present which I was so delighted with. You see I have to build up my Portmerion collection little by little. It is difficult to find here and very expensive so I have to bring it piece by piece from the UK . Every time I go home I bring a few bits more with me. I love it when I have another new piece!

Hello and welcome to my latest follower. Thank you for visiting :-)
That is it for the moment peeps. I'm off to block my latest make and it is big so it is going to take me awhile.
