The last month

I have been so busy with the scrapstore and challenges, the holidays and in between visits to hospital with Sarai that I didn't have the time to unload my camera! Did it today and here is a recapture of the last 3 weeks :)

The Xmass bread we baked, the traditional Weihnacht Stol

and the oliebollen (Dutch donuts) for New Years Eve/Hanukkah

and Hanukkah of course!

and the poinsettia my mom gave me

and finally we had the antique plate rack hung on the wall. I bought this beauty last year for 230 shekels, which was a steal I think (around 60 dollars). It has beautiful carved patterns on top and bottom.

 and this beautiful mirror I bought last week for 500 shekels (130 dollars), which is really cheap as these are extremely rare here. It has beautiful carved symbols.

love the pomme granates in the middle!

These 7 English transferware plates I bought  a few weeks ago at the Haifa fleamarket.

This little thing was standing at the roadside near the garbage in the pouring rain and I hope it can be saved as the wood was soaking wet.

also this fellow stood next to the garbage bin. Saved in time!

This lot I bought also at the fleamarket and was around 10 dollars the lot, for 5 soup plates, 3 dinner plates and one serving plate. Italian. For my blue transferware collection.

and this is really a lovely find (4 dollars for the lot). Five lunch plates from
Phoenix ware Thomas Forester and sons. These were made before 1959. Does anybody recognize this particular pattern?

and finally these 3 brown transferware cups and saucers. Myott royal mail pattern. Around a dollar for one cup and saucer.

Thanks for visiting me and wishing you a lovely week!
