Thank God it's thrifty Friday! How has your first week of May been? It's been lovely weather here and I've been enjoying a little more time in the garden. This week's fabulous finds have a common theme--they were all made in England. First, this charming collectible plate...
...would make a thoughtful gift for any mom. I wasn't familiar with Norma Sherman, but after a little research I learned that she designed quite a few collectibles. I like the backstamp inscription. Available
Next, I found an identical pair of Wedgwood Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit plates. I've been reading her books to Ginger Grand during our Facetime chats. He's quite enamored with the mischief little bunny so I've already promised him one when he comes to visit--in 33 days(!)--but the other is Available.
Isn't this small Cuthbertson Home Christmas platter lovely? I learned it is part of their original popular Christmas Tree pattern series. I like the contrast of the holly and mistletoe. Available
I've sold several stenciled plates in Thrift Store Addiction, so I plan to stencil this pretty ironstone pair.
Last but not least, this was a new-to-me Johnson Brothers' ironstone pattern: Sugar and Spice was manufactured in the 70s.
I love the colors and whimsical design. Available
Until next time, happy hunting!
