Ironstone Pitchers and Royal Daulton Figurines...

I'm working on rearranging my house little by little. 
My pitchers have been sitting on my coffee table for over a year until I could decide where to display them. I finally cleared off the top of this old cabinet and moved most of the pitchers here.

So for my White Wednesday part of my post (seeing as I can only seem to find time to post once a week...) here are my old pitchers...I love both the clean white and  the crazed and stained.



The inside of the cabinet could use some rearranging too...

The old cabinet belonged to Mr. Wild's grandparents.


But for now it will stay like this...


The 5 Royal Daulton figurines were given to me by my grandmother.


She left them to me in her will. I had never asked for them. I do remember every time I went to her house when I was a little girl, I would look up at each one. She had a wide mantle and the 5 of them were spaced out, I'd start on the left side and move to the right stopping at each one to admire them but I never touched them. I have an idea she was watching me from around the corner to see what I did. That's probably why she left them to me...she knew they would be in good hands!

I still admire them.

Thanks for stopping!

Oh so lovely, the Royal Doulton with its memories and the white pitchers. Pitchers always look good grouped together. Jacqueline from Cabin and Cottage does lovely displays with her collection. I always enjoy them.
