Favourite things






A vintage find with all 6 cases included

My Ruby nan's cruet set including mustard pot 

Some of my rather large collection of tea cups


My enamel bread bin - battered but loved!

My great grandmothers sherry glasses

Hand whisk originally belonging to my Ruby nan, beautiful scissors found in the garden!

Mini milk bottle dug up from the garden in perfect condition

Fabulous 1970s pottery found in a box

Empty black treacle tins - both the tins and the treacle are favourite things!

Part of large vintage tea and coffee set bought at a car boot sale

Six hand painted glasses and jug bought at a garage sale for 50 pence

Part of a 1930s coffee set that was one of my first ever vintage purchases

The clock isn't vintage but our kitchen wallpaper is made up of overlapping out of date
ordnance survey maps of places we have been to.  One of my most favourite of all my favourite things!

for now,
Ruby xx

What lovely treasures! I really like your teacup collection and the hand painted glasses.

Finding things in the garden. OMG it is such a treat! I found a terracotta fairy in in our veggie patch. She has a broken wing but I do love her. As a child, I found a pottery ginger beer bottle buried in a hollow tree. I love that bottle. Lovely post. ;-)

Oh, those are gorgeous things. I especially like the tea set.

we obviously care for the same things. Is that coffee pot 'Florida'?
I am also very fond of anything 'nutbrown'.

Yes it is indeed Florida. Well spotted. The tea service is Royal Caulder.
