An image which Kath posted a few days ago reminded me that I have collected lots of blue-and-white china over several years. Some of it came from car boots, as you might have guessed, but there are a few pieces which I bought in Holland, so it's real Delft!
Most of it is packed away in the roof but I do have a few bits and pieces on top of a bookcase, though mostly jugs (twelve all told) because I like the different shapes they're made in. The little jug on the first step up, on the left hand end, that's Delft. The sauce boat in the centre at the bottom holds the electricity and gas meter box keys so they're readily at hand if I need them. There are more plates stashed away but it's a long time since I've looked at them.
The photo was taken in 2005 or 6 when I was taking a writing course and one of the assignments must have been to get a letter published in a magazine; this one was.
