My granddaughter was 'helping me' sort through some cupboards yesterday
and 'we' decided to change around
the things I had on display

A little different, isn't it?

I tried to get a close up
but my camera wasn't having it!!
It says
"Montrose Shape
Old Country Roses"

It looks as if the artist was having breakfast with her paint box ready mixed
and got up in a hurry knocking over
the milk jug!!

It's so beautifully detailed

The tablecloth
is beautifully embroidered

and so is the underskirt!

Even underneath is beautifully sculpted

I loved the top of this as it reminded me

of a..

coffee jug
we were given...

as a wedding present 46 years ago.

Perhaps I'll do a post about that set another time!?

I'm joining The Tablescaper at  Seasonal Sundays
