pretty Japanese tea trios
eight dollars all up
perfect for afternoon tea
hmmm, not sure if I like the green or mustardy yellow one best...
I found some very nice speckled ramikens (these are for you Anth)
Wrapped with love in pink tissue paper by the gorgeous ladies at the op-shop.
They are signed Raynham and I have discovered via the rameking's excellent blog that the Ray in Raynham was an accountant not a potter. His workshop in Victoria made thousands of ramekins like these in the 50's and 60's so they are not worth very much, but I still like them and they will be perfect for hot chocolate pudding!
This ceramic swan planter also made it home
(a project from someones ceramic class?)
As did this little pottery vase, given to me by the ladies in the op-shop for being a good customer (!)
love its little gum blossoms
I found more kitschy souvenirs to love...
Swan Art Pottery
I also found more Big Eye art to add to my collection
cute, especially for one dollar!
The op-shop ladies also gave their favourite customer (my words. NOT theirs!) this wonderful book of dress making patterns for children...
Forget children! I would SO wear these clothes! Have a look
love the coat on the left
And I'm showing you this pic purely for the fabulously loud wallpaper in the background...
one outfit I would not wear!
That's more than enough from me today, thank you for looking at my loot. It's a good little op-shop isn't it...
Here is Thursday's t towel
pretty carnations...I've had a few mangled bunches of these over the years!
