Nope, no sewing. But I'm getting ready for it. Honest.
Rather - JB and I hit an estate sale.
He couldn't leave behind this beautiful pewter hostess set.
There is a tray, coffee and tea pots, creamer and sugar as well as an open bowl.
Anyone know what the open bowl was originally used for?
Sorry for the really blurry photo
That's a pumpkin at the top of the lids.
Of course, this set was really expensive. And since he's been watching a lot of American Pickers
he found something to bundle with it.
Yea - I got another set of china.
This is Royal Staffordshire in the Tonquin pattern, in brown - I think.
I say - I think because I can't find it online.
It's a service for 12 with some additional serving pieces.
Look at how pretty the scene in the center of each piece is.
This makes 13 different sets of dishes.
I have 3 sets of china, 2 sets of everyday - all complete with serving pieces.
the remaining 8 sets are just 4 dinner plates and either the bowls or salad plates.
I'm out of room - I cannot buy another set - or I'll have to buy a new house.
Just a reminder - someday we hope to own a B&B.
I'm just building up stock.
