Blue Thursday & Birthday!
Well, I promised teapots, so here they are....my little collection of Burleighware blue & white teapots (with a few little jugs and a sugar bowl thrown in!).
I found it rather hard to photograph these to show them off to their best, so this will have to do. One of my favourites amongst the bunch is this pair called 'Secret Garden', I just adore the peacock strutting under the garden arch.
Even their backstamp is beautifully done.
I will spend more time taking better photo's one day and show the rest of the collection, there is a few of them!!! What else do you need if you have many teapots? Teapot warmers of course!!! I made these earlier this year and might have to do a little tutorial on them, they are so easy. Love that blue and white fabric!
On the blue and white theme I also have two lovely little plates I picked up cheaply from an op shop (fuzzy pic, sorry!).
I love the backstamp on one of these plates too, it's stained and cracked and beautiful and I wish it could talk and tell me it's story.
Another blue here today is my little bag I made a couple of years ago. It's a lovely little pattern from Monica Poole of Moon Shine called Lou Lou. It's had a lot of use and been a great little bag to carry around just a few bits and pieces.
My last blue is another ceramic jug, made in Japan this time. I found this one in a secondhand shop down the road and bought it with money Mum sent me for my birthday a few years ago.
And yes, you guessed it, it's my birthday today, yay!!! I'm off to work for the rest of the day, so will celebrate quietly tomorrow night. I hope your day is a wonderful one...and as my youngest son tells me...only 8 days til Christmas! xo
