Porcelain, Roses and Smashed Pots




I have just started collecting this gorgeous rose porcelain. So far i have these 2 pieces, a single candle holder and a trinket box. My mum (see link at bottom of page for CollsGarden) has a lamp with just the pink roses on the base and i so want it ! Also Debbie (see link at bottom of page also)has the most gorgeous lamp base that my mum made a shade for. I WANT THEM ALL!!

The gorgeous timber table is an old one that i picked up at St Vinnies. I am undecided as to whether or not i should paint it...i really dont think everything has to be white, i sometimes think you should just leave well enough alone. I like the Vintage feel it gives my room. It suits my old pair of Lustre Jugs to a T as well. I usually have some old doileys on there too but they are in the wash.

I just had to add the Pot Picture......it was one of my Mosaic Pots that i made a while back, a real favourite too.....my dad ended its shabby life yesterday when he knocked it off its stand...oh poor shabby mosaic pot. I have forgiven my dad :) alas Sam ( my 31/2 year old ) has not..."Grandad you are naughty, Mummys gonna rouse on you!"
Out of the mouths of babes hey!
