Whose coming for dinner?



Oh what this little collection? Pft I got all of the crockery for £30 from a local charity shop, by jove can you believe it?  The majority of it is Barratts, I am not sure when they are from though. Anywho, I am now sorted for plates for when I do eventually move out of my parents. 

The little ship is a lamp I got on eBay, yes it is a lamp! It needs rewiring though, may take me awhile to figure out how to do that! I am wanting a Captain's cabin who fell in love with a mermaid kind of vibe for the living room. I am really enjoying finding bits for mine and my lovely's home, nothing very practical mind you...

Also really want this its one of a pair, but they are going too pricey for me, maybe you can buy them and I can come round to your house and gaze at them? thanks.

  6. £30 is quite a steal for everything you got. I started my transferware collection with an $80 box of dishes from an estate sale. I LOVE your captain's cabin décor idea, by the way.
