Doulton in the Garden from Yesterdays Estate




When ever we go to an old estate house we always have to remind ourselves to look everywhere including the garden. Yesterday Kristen found this old Doulton Gaffers cookie jar base ( top photo) in the garden of an old home. The other two pieces pictured are two bits of Australian Pottery we have found over the years in the garden of old homes that now have a place in my home.
(Sorry to everyone for being so slack on the blogging front this past week. We have had a few computer issues, but I hope to show you some of the things we have been up to this past week in the coming days.)

  5. Fun collection of pots to display plants in and nice way to perk up your patio with a bit of personality.

    Am off in search of amazing and unique beads or dangly thingys for a swap i am participating in but they have to be in shades of pink, a good excuse to come by and visit the boat shed perhaps.
