When I was younger I used to buy these cheap plaster vases whenever I saw them. Then I grew up, got all sophisticated (not!) and decided I didn't like them anymore...
I sold some of them and donated the rest to op-shops ( you see, I am a giver as well as a receiver!) all except the green ones...I just love that eau de nil green and I found I couldn't part with them.
isn't this one lovely?
The large vase to the left (well it's more of a jug than a vase really) is the first present ever given to me by my husband. We weren't married at the time, I know he paid one dollar for it and I think one of the reasons he married me was because he thought I'd be a cheap date!
How wrong he was! Ha-ha! Having said that I love that jug and it would be one of the first things I'd grab if there was a fire (apart from the kids and dog of course!)
the remains of my collection
There is one more, but although I could see it, I couldn't reach it and believe me I tried! For some reason it wasn't packed with the others. It's a shame because it's a really special one...it belonged to my Nanna and was made in Australia, unlike the others which are all made in England. Oh well...one day...
btw I still see these in op-shops all the time, I never buy them though and they are not cheap anymore either. I like my little collection and I'm glad I've decided to bring it inside...its been stored away for too long.
In lieu of my usual tea towel post, look at what I received from lovely Scarlett today
two wonderful tea towels and an Aussie hanky to add to my collection. Yay!
The Big Shell and the Big Cow are right up there on the list of things I want to see before I head up to that big tea towel in the sky, that's for sure!
