The stuff to the left is all new.
At Greazefest, our bric-a-brac table directly adjoined that of the seller next door, so when I saw the lady unpack this fabulous black and white polka dot set I immediately started making oo-ooh-OOOHHH noises.
You know, like the noises a kid makes when they're busting for the loo.
Sue came over, took one look and said, firmly but decisively, 'buy it'.
So I did!
The only things missing are the spoons- But I'll be on the lookout for them from now on. I love that the polka dots are actually in the pottery itself, i.e. they're raised, rather than just being painted or glazed on.
I also got this hand painted West German mid century vase, which I totally love. Quite cheap too, as it has a couple of texta'd-in chips at the back.
I also bought this little atomic dish, this is my third one of these, I have a blue and a brown too. Dang flash photography makes it look much worse than it is IRL, but either way it has to wait a while for a respray, with a shop and fairs and a child to deal with, I find that I'm quite slack about fixing up anything for myself- lol!
These next few little pieces came from a house lot we bought a couple of weeks ago. I still have yet to tell you about the 'kitsch army' contained within, but I'll get to it soon.
Weeny dish, again with raised polka dots, my second piece of Italian Fiorentina pottery. Not sure if I'll keep collecting this stuff-let's see how much I find and take it from there.
Actually it kills me when I see 'set of 5...' or 'set of 3...' (whatever-it-is) for sale...3 OR 5 THINGS DO NOT MAKE A SET, PEOPLE!
Ok, rant over.
On another note entirely, can anyone who does quilting kindly advise me on quilting squares? I have a heap of remnants (too good to throw out, someone may enjoy them) to cut up and sell as such, who can tell what size to cut them? I have a fair idea but am not completely sure, so would like to know what you think. Thanks!
