clearing out the china cabinet

hi to you all. hope you are enjoying your weekend.
i finally pulled out my china cabinet and emptied out all the
pretties i have collected. i have found a leadlight sideboard to replace
this, so it is for sale through my facebook page here.
quaint coffee cups that were gifted to my Grandparents at their engagement
party. they have never been used. Granny gave them to me one weekend
i stayed over at her place.
this little pottery vase was the first of my pottery roses collection.

another favourite vase i found in an op shop.
pretty tea set from Nanna.
Grandpa's War Medals, and doilies his Mother made.
Needlepoint ceramic box that holds 4 matching ashtrays.
this was a gift from my Great Aunty.
so there are just a few of my favourite things.
many special memories.
