George's best bits
Ok,as you asked - it took some time to go through George's bags - see previous post if you didn't read it! It had clearly been stored for some time and was very mucky. I persevered though and washed everything before passing judgement!
The picture above shows the best bits I found. There was lots to send to charity shops and some for car booting (brasses, pewter etc)and this ...
Does anyone know what this is? Yes I know it' a stained glass piece for hanging in a window. Am I right in thinking Galleon images were big in the 40s/50s? If anyone knows anything about these please let me know.
Forgot to take a picture of this litle jug before I'd added it to my shelves
which are getting a bit crowded!
The coffee cans and saucers were all perfect and make a lovely little set. The coffee pot will look great when I've polished it and added some roses. The mirror can be added to my collection of mirrors but look at the tureen! It matches a little jug I bought at a car boot last autumn and again is perfect. I think it will look rather lovely filled with veg and used alongside my utility ware collection which is coming along nicely!
I've been making the most of the good weather and tidying some of my pots. I have an ongoing battle with slugs and snails so I keep my hostas in almost any container I can get my hands on
The next picture includes a geranium in a vintage colander. George has said that there are enough pots and pans in the garden and could I just provide a kettle and he could then sort himself out a cuppa while cleaning my windows!
I lost a lot of my pots over the winter due to the frosts. The picture below shows my most serious casualty which while looking perfectly fine in the picture is merely a half pot with no base. Still I think it looks just fine tucked around the lavender!
Have a great week!
