Some more goodies

I've been frantically reading blogs that interest me to 'see how it's done' and help me to make this more interesting.
I've also had some more charity shop goodies over the last week or so to add to my 'collections' - here are a few of them for you to peruse.
There's a lovely pale blue glass perfume bottle in really lovely condition which will find a home with it's friends on my dressing table (costing only £1). That is placed on the mirror tray ( which was £1.95) - now exactly why I'd like to double the amount of things on display is a mystery to me! But it took my fancy anyhow. In the background to the left is a Poole pottery sugar basin which was also £1, in my favourite 'Seagull' pattern - I really love the feel of the glaze, it's so smooth - very tactile. The centre back are four delightful porcelain shell dishes, which I feel will be lovely to serve either a prawn or scallop starter when friends are here for dinner. An absolute bargain at 30p each! To the right of them is a Rye Pottery dish with the word 'Runnymede' standing proudly through the glaze, as we know the place that the Magna Carta was signed. This was also £1, I've visited Rye Pottery on a few occasions whilst holidaying in East Sussex over the years but this is the first piece I've owned as it just took my fancy. The linen cloth that these items are on was also a charity shop find last year, it has really nice embroidery on it and I'm sure it was only a couple of pounds.

Rose, the blue glass perfume bottle is lovely!Such a pretty shape. I especially like the Poole pottery sugar basin. It's shape is also pleasing. I did not know what Poole pottery was so checked eBay UK and learned. I like that Seagull finish. Hope you won't mind that I don't have a blog but I do visit a lot of them. Blogs bring people closer together. I think you're doing a fine job and I will be visiting. I love to check out thrift shops - a treasure hunt awaits. I also love to read so thought you were a perfect fit.

Thank you Norwegian, I really appreciate your comments.
I don't mind that you don't have a blog - I've been reading them for months without having one myself.
Hope you come back soon :o)
