I brought the two Grindley Peach Petalware plates last weekend and the shot of peach adds a bright touch to my collection, which predominantly consists of blue and green. I don't normally find a lot of this colour utility china about on my trawls and apart from the plates, the only other peach Petalware I have comprises a small milk jug and a bowl.
I have finally completed my Christmas present cake stands and they're now all wrapped up awaiting delivery. I made three in the end, although I collected more plates than I needed; the temptation to buy more plates just couldn't be avoided, especially the really pretty ones. However, a friend saw them today and mentioned that people are asking her if she has any cake stands on her market stall. So, it looks like I shall be putting the extra ones to good use to make more in the new year and may be booking myself a place at the market too.
This is likely to be my last post for 2011 and when I next return I'll be a year older, a few pounds heavier and none the wiser! So, in the meantime I'll wish you all a Happy Christmas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012.
