Following on from this post, and in the absence of anything crafty to show you, I thought I would share my little collection of Poole pottery with you today.
I think all these items came from my Nana's house (note to self: check with mother about this kind of thing before starting to type next time!) There's the little jug you saw last time, a cute little vase and two little bowls.
The trough shaped item at the front is also intended for putting flowers in, with the stems cut very short, almost to the flower head, but I have no idea what you would call it!
And finally, there is Nana's marmalade jar, which was pretty much a permanent fixture of the breakfast table at her house:-
This is the item that holds most sentimental value, as it is a very clear memory from my childhood - even though I never ate marmalade! I love all these pieces though, the pretty, soft colours used and the lovely feel of the pottery too.
Now I have to go and make some chocolate fudge for our teachers, and hopefully next time I'll have something a little more seasonal to show you!
