Birthday and more.....

Some of you may remember it was my birthday last month.  I was lucky enough to have some gifts of money, here are a just a few of the things I got with it.
Cock A Doodle-Do!
I got this great rooster, that now has pride of place on the kitchen worktop.  It is for storing eggs.

This little piggy....shows cuts of meat in French.  (T K Maxx bargain!) 
These three great carpet bowls, love the marble effect one.

Then there are some more of my charity shop bargains I promised to show.

Two sweet little trinket boxes for 75p each.  I love the one with the two sweet birds on.

This dinky little mother of pearl fork was 20p.   The colours are beautiful, but the photo doesn't do it justice.
These two little Wade rabbits were £1.25.  (I think they are from Bambi?)
Another little bunny - blue and white of course (and out of focus!) 25p
A pretty pair of cotton tea towels and oven glove £2.50 
Did you really think I could leave this in the charity shop?  Very old Midwinter, half pint size - £3

A pair of wooden Indian Runner Ducks - too cute to leave behind at £3

And now for a poser.....

My dear friend Sandy had bought two of these lovely plates, (aren't the birds cute?) and gave me this one and asked me if I knew where it was from.  These are the only marks on the back....

I cannot find them in any of my reference books, but suspect they are either French or Portuguese.
I found this jug the other day (75p) with a similar colour pallete - it's Portuguese.  What do you think?

Hope you like some of the items I've picked up - let me know!

It's great that you come and have a look at what I've been adding to my collections. 

Best wishes to all,

Forgot to say....I'm STILL trying to catch that darn 'lucky' leaf!

I love everything, but particularly the carpet bowls, those cute tea towels and of course all the blue and white!

Well Done!

Hello Rose, many thanks for the birthday greetings! I keep telling myself 'older is better' both in antiques and one's age, ha!ha! Actually, come to think of it, I really like this age (67) because thankfully I'm healthy and active, doing things I love, great supportive hubby, and kids/grandkids who are now old enough to take care of themselves......I can stop stressing over their shenanigans at long last!

Love all your collectibles - great finds at the charity shops and, yes I'm thinking that's a plate from Portugal.

Thanks for always stopping by and leaving such kind comments Rose. Have a fun day - raining here but that's OK we really need it for the gardens.
Hugs - Mary
