I have recently picked up some china bits for me personally. I found these gorgeous soup bowls and plates at The Dairy House Antiques fair. These were from a stall inside and I found them to be irresistible to me. I have been looking for sometime for some. I did not care if they were all odd as long as there was some sort of blend of colours. These caught my eye. Three have tiny chips on the soup bowls but it takes nothing away from their beauty or usefulness. I may however take them to be repaired at a ceramic repairs that I have found, with tiny chips they sort of sandpaper them down so that its not sharp. If they are only tiny nicks then this works beautifully.. I now have a set of six beautiful soup bowls to fill with chunky hearty soups next Winter and also its nice to fill them with a good stew and chunks of home made breads as well.
At the Blandford vintage fair I went to last Monday I found some amazing fabrics on The Washerwoman stall ..
The photo at the top on the left is 1930's eiderdown paisley fabric and the photo on the top right close up is the 1920's eiderdown fabric. I was over the moon with both little bundles. I have an idea for the 1920 one with those colours. It is a rare colour way and fabric and I am so pleased it came home with me!
Also at the Blandford fair I picked up a beautiful antique French box. It is lined inside and really is
At the Somerset fair I also found some beautiful lace and trimmings and these
To finish off this show and tell blog I would like to show you all the three little coffee cups I purchased from the Somerset vintage fair. They are so beautiful and although they are Art Deco
They really are very pretty and if there had of been even four I would have kept them as a set.
So these are my treasures that I have purchased recently and now that I have taken photos of them this morning I will sort them out and pop them in their appropriate living quarters. I have a little list today of what I would like to achieve by the end of the day and may have been a tad over ambitious... we will see. I hope you have enjoyed a little look and hope that you all have a great day.
