Pretty pieces for the table that I grew up with - My Mother's china

Everything is so pretty at the moment with Spring, even my studio as it's filled with
blossoms and flowers ready to be photographed.
These are few of my favourite things that I grew up with as a young girl.
My mother collected very romantic and beautiful figurines and china
and I remember the wonderful weekend parties when these tea cups where set on Mum's table along with home made cakes and treats for our relatives and friends that came to visit.

 I don't know about you, but I can't find the time
these days to entertain on a Sunday afternoon. 
I have washing, cleaning, gardening, shopping
and the odd client's job to complete.

  5. Wonderful, wonderful memorabilia! The detailing on the face of the girl in the bonnet is amazing! I hope you're able to find some time to entertain on a Sunday afternoon soon. All the chores do build up, and it's nice to be able to take a little break to enjoy the fruits of your labor!

  6. So pretty -- your ladies are quite beautiful.
