Ribbons and Roses

A few days ago I was reading someone's blog and was really taken with some pretty china they had found. Unfortunately I can't remember which blog it was I saw it on ! Anyway,by the strangest coincidence I spotted some of the same china in the window of a local charity shop today. Of course I just had to have it and couldn't believe how much of it there was and such a bargain price.It is a 1950s pattern by Colclough China. I have given it a good wash and will pack it away until I decide what to do with all. I think some of it will find it's way on to my kitchen dresser shelves and I guess it will come in very handy for the vintage tea room we are having at our November fair.

This pattern is very pretty and gentle, I can imagine it knitted into one of those 50's jumpers with the zip front. I thought your shelf papers were lovely, they express an individual style. I live in a new house but it wouldn't stop me having them, they make a really good talking point and add a bit of character.
