52 Photos Project – week 37 :: my collection

Welcome back. This week’s prompt is “my collection”.

Until I had to choose, I didn’t realize just how many collections I actually have. I love collecting…and it goes in cycles… So much so, that when I see things now, I have to think, “Where is it going to go? Do I have a spot for it?”

In our household, we love to cook & entertain friends & family, so you might guess that most of my collectibles are kitchen related.

I would have to say my favourite collection are my “Cornish-ware” pieces. Some are in really good shape and we use them on a regular basis. Other are old & stained, so they just live in the china cabinet. IMG_2084.JPG
This coffee/tea set is the jewel of the collection, though is isn’t Cornish-ware. It is Carrigaline from the Republic of Ireland. It is complete with 6 mugs, a pitcher & covered sugar bowl.

My next favourite collection are my bowls. …and before you ask, yes, I do use them all:

Just for an added splash of colour, I’m including my Fiestaware dishes…a fun collection, full of great colors. I love using them this time of year when it is cold and bleak out.

  1. I love that you have collections of all sorts of dish ware! and stripes! my favorite is stripes. love to wear them and I’m instantly attracted to anything with stripes. I suppose I collect hearts and feathers:) I would love to have a collection of dishes but I don’t have much storage.
