I have a thing for floral ceramics, the more twee the more I love it! One such item is the humble pomander. Ive been seeing them pop up on blogs around blogland for some time and while I own a few I never really thought about them. Kat did a lovely post showing her pomander finds on her window which looked lovely. So when I spied some at a boot sale I thought I'd take the opportunity to re home a couple.
Now there is one more thing I should confess before I start the show and tell and that is when faced with a choice of items I like, I am terrible at choosing just one....
This pomander started the ball rolling:
Very cute, but I also liked these:
And I wanted to own the french one of the lad wooing his lady with a flute ;o)
Blue and white is always a good combo:
...and what about the egg and pepper shaped ones:
...and yet more floral:
Now I must admit the seller wasn't the best at maths and so when I offered £4 for the lot she accepted straight away and bagged them up...not realising that she had sold me them at 16p each :o)
Looks like I've got a new collection in the house! Now what to do with them all?
My blogging and commenting might be a bit sporadic this week as I'm gearing up for Finley's first birthday on Thursday and the pirate party on Saturday. Better don my rubber gloves and pinny for the house cleaning marathon all ready for the influx of family and friends, anyone want to help? *wink* At least I now own enough pomanders to mask any dodgy smells that dare enter my door!
