This week I'm joining in with Kylie and Donna's "Retro and Vintage inspired corner of my home" linky party.
Let me present to you our dresser which lives in the corner of the dining room:
A close up:
The dresser (not old at all) houses some of my various collections such as my Meakin coffee pots:
More coffee pots, the red Habitat 70s one on the left and a Palissy "Madeleine" on the right (I've also got coffee cups and saucers to match):
A couple more coffee pots in the background. The chrome one on the left is Melitta from Germany and the one on the right is another Meakin called "Midnight Star".
Oooh a close-up of my favourite jam pot. It's soooo cute.
A Hornsea coffee pot on the left and a rabbit teapot. I bought the rabbit teapot from Liberty as a prezzie for Mr J and P when we first got it together - over 20 years now (egads!).
A rather cluttered shelf with a few Swedish glass vases and some of my collection of salt and pepper sets:
Yes. My salt and pepper collection. I've been meaning to bore you with that for a long time.......and here's my chance!
A jumble sale buy from yesteryear:
Another jumble sale buy from yesteryear:
More jumble sale buys:
The following two sets were bought for me by Mr J and P from Brick Lane market in east London if I remember rightly:
It's one of Mr J and P's (many) "family heirlooms" (so he likes to call them. I won't go into what I like to call them.....). It's a buddha lamp from Singapore when Mr J and P's granny lived there in the 1940s.
A few of the Mexican tin animals that I've stuck onto the dresser courtesy of Mr J and P's bruv went he went to Mexico some years ago:
On the windowsill next to the dresser are an owlie salt and pepper set and...
wooden chef salt, pepper, paprika and allspice shakers:
On the door nearest the dresser is my lovingly painted knob rack......
with my modest collection of pinnies:
Well that's all folks. I'm off to Kylie's to slobber over some vintage nooks and crannies. I do hope you'll be joining me. xx
