Collections….

It’s a cold, snowy day in the Ozarks and one of those days when everything appears to need a good cleaning.  One of my favorite collections is my doll china and when it needs to be cleaned, you have quite a job on your hands.

 

I have collected this china for years and all over the map.  My interest in it started when Allison was little and we bought our first tea set.sm. china pieces 016

I love using it with all my ironstone to break up some of the white.  It’s great stacked in bowls or piled on cake stands or stacked around the bottom of an Easter tree.

Guess I should get back to cleaning it.  With the sun shinning through the windows this morning looks like I’ve got quite a bit of work to do.

Hey Jan...
I'm hoping for an early spring... I think we are going to get one... The snow really melted here, yesterday, and I was walking through a mote, to get into the shop! YEAH!!! It's cloudy, today, so mo melting... The greenhouse, was almost 70 degrees yesterday!... I just basked in it...
Take care, and keep up the good work!
My love to ya!
