Torquay pottery update
Someone asked (Issy was it?) to see my latest Torquay pieces, esp. the kingfishers jar I got last weekend, so here goes . . . You can see why I fell in love with it : )
The little green jug I got today for £2, and the other more unusual one wasthe dark blue one on the left with the Stork (or Heron) on it. That was given to me with another piece, so I baked the lady a cake in return.
The one on the right (with the "tadpoles" around the top) is one that my husband found for me yesterday (£2 again). Probably Edwardian.
Another £2 piece. You may notice it isn't with the others. That's because I have run out of room on that shelf. Oh dear - I can see I need another shelf : ) The little green owl is an old match-holder and strike-a-light (£2 again) - not Torquay, but isn't he cute?
Back tomorrow hopefully - oh, and Theo is now wanting to meet the other cats and after I got a stroke down his back today, he then let me touch his head when he was eating and did exactly what Lucky did, all those years ago, when she had come to me, starving - he pushed his head up into my hand, as much as to say, "Oh I do like you really". . . I'm sure ALL getting-tamed cats will do that, but I feel Lucky has sent him my way
