Just casually thrown out

The other day a male acquantance rang up and said: "Just been helping So and so to clean out her house and there's a box of material. Do you want it?"
Well really! How would I know until I look. I couldn't even picture who So and so was. So half and hour later along comes a car with a racketty trailer in tow and I get to poke through and find a few bits I love. But then I looked deeper and found this.

And in that box was this single set - cup, saucer and plate - Queen Anne bone china.

I knew exactly who would love it.

There were also a few other bits and pieces of royal china just casually dumped in the box. So now I have a few more pieces to add to my collection.


  1. Wow - and the treasure was delivered to your door. How about that... the strangest things do happen in this thing we call life.

  2. oh what lovely things to rescue how wonderful they now have a good home!!!

  3. "One man's trash.." Isn't in incredible what people will throw away. Good for you, though!


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
