Sea Pottery Happiness



We did Christmas at the Forum on the weekend, which was a great show. We met lots of people, sharing their sea glass stories.  One lovely lady and her daughter studied our sea pottery collection and casually mentioned that she recognized the patterns of some of our floral pieces, and that she had the china at home in her attic! The china belonged to the Victoria General Hospital, back in the day when hospitals served patients on real china and not styrofoam and plastic.  The VG has since been amalgamated into a larger Health Centre.






I was so excited that I rambled on to everyone who stopped by the booth for the rest of the day (sorry people, but thanks for listening). And thank you to the kind lady who rescued the saucers from her attic, you made my day!

See, this is why I love my dish collections (and why my hubby will learn too ;) ) There is always a story behind each piece, and how exciting to hear it!

Your hubby may never learn, mine didn't, but he did learn to tolerate my scouring of yard sales and vintage shops looking for that perfect piece :)
