On The Shelf


Well I spent all day wandering around trying to decide what shelf to put up (not that there are that many in the house!!) I love my Violet China. My Mum started me off with some of hers and since then I have collected it from Op Shops, second hand shops and probably half have been gifts. I've stacked my Quilts under and over them handy to grab on a cool night.



But then I saw my Dad's books sitting on the shelf in my bedroom, they are one of the things that remind me of him as he passed away nearly 20 years ago.
So rather that dither all night wondering which one to show, your getting them both! Much easier for me and you get two peeks at what's in my place.
(I'm glad the sewing room is such a disaster cause I would have looked at the button jars or the grungy little old desk with all the bits and bobs on it and then the procrastinating would have been even worse!)

Wow what an amazing collection of China...I would fear imminent breakage at my house....I'd say my favorite is the book shelf..I see why you had trouble deciding which to post..Yay for both!

I love china set out on a shelf - just gorgeous - and I'm a huge fan of the books too... I wouldn't have been able to choose between them either :) K

Thanks guys.Took years to collect all the china and yes, some things have been broken. Kids!!!
The books are very special and have pride of place on the shelf.
