Back again ... didn't make the auction this morning but have managed the garden tidy up so feeling very pleased with myself. I did manage to pop into our local Hospice Charity Shop before getting stuck into the tidy up and look what I found. I cannot resist opening boxes or baskets no matter how scruffy they are coz you just never know what you might find inside .. got a nice surprise with this one for the princely sum of £2. Now I can't decide whether to let Ellie play with it or add it to my toy china collection. As a rule I stick to 19th and early 2oth century English toy china in blue and white. This harks back to my childhood days visiting our museum. In the toy section there was always a Blue Willow toy set which I coveted with all my heart - so now I indulge myself when I can.
