Slowly Built Collections

I've done a bit of shopping in the past month or so, and happily added a few treasures!

This small collection of Cornishware has grown.

I found the two small bowls that are resting on top of the somewhat larger bowls while antique shopping last week.

My FAVORITE shade of blue!


A few weeks back I came across these two Dutch guys.

I have a pitcher with their likeness on it also.

Not sure where I'm going to put this, but I'll find a place, I always do!
This baby plate was at an antique mall.

I almost didn't get it.

I don't get A LOT of what I find, I promise!

But this plate has a certain charm.
My aunt found this one when we were at Benson Corners Antiques in Wisconsin.

She decided not to get it, so I did!

I have this same child, Baby Bunting, on a different plate, but he's toting a rifle.

This one seems sweeter, somehow.
While we were shopping at Cornerstone, a lovely shop in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin I found the perfect candle for my Sunbonnet Baby candle holder I bought awhile back.

I have two Sunbonnet Girl plates from the same maker, Royal Bayreuth.

That makes three, a TRUE collection!

Right? (please say yes)
Just recently I started seeking out Santas, but only if they have just the right look.

Not TOO jolly, more serious and saintly, I guess.

This Santa looks like the kind who would bring socks, mittens, books and maybe a toy or two.

Not an electronic game in his bag, I am sure.


In a quest for green bottles once a few years ago I found a green prune juice bottle.

Then another.

And last week, ONE MORE!

Another collection!

Yay! (please say YAY!)
Another slow growing collection has been these Arabia children's plates/bowls.

I added one more bowl last week.

Today Hertsje and Broeder had their Cheerios in these!

No good natural light this time of year, and I haven't wanted to use a flash, but the pictures are of animals.
Somewhere, I have another plate that matches these.

I picture THGGM and I eating December breakfasts on these plates.

We probably wont, but it IS what I picture.

They were incredibly inexpensive, so if I find we don't use them, I may just display them, or displace them, which ever comes first.

One just never knows around here.
