Cover Girl!

Can you believe it - my little Violet is a cover girl?!  Here she is in all her beauty.

Pretty Nostalgic Magazine
Can you spot her on the cover of issue 6 of Pretty Nostalgic magazine?  Have a closer look ...

 
I was delighted when the folks at Pretty Nostalgic asked me to send along some mismatched vintage china to be photographed.  But I has such a time trying to decide what to send.  As many of you will know, I just adore all my lovely bits and pieces, most of which were picked up for next to nothing in local charity shops.

 
So here's what I (eventually) sent;-
teacup - Royal Standard
saucer - Royal Vale with pretty thatched cottage and garden design
side plate - Royal Albert, Greenwood Tree pattern
cake plate - Phoenix with pretty lilac flowers

 
You can read more about my choices on the Pretty Nostalgic blog page here.

 
So I'm off to put the kettle on and make myself a cuppa, in a pretty vintage teacup and settle down to read the rest of the magazine - there are some fantastic articles inside.

Love, Liz

How exciting this whole process must have been for you. I don't think we have that magazine here in the U.S., but I have found Pretty Nostalgic on Facebook. Congratulation on the feature in the magazine.

Looking at your beautiful china makes me sad because mine is all in storage until we sell our house. It's so beautiful to look at though, I think you are generous letting it out of your sight. X

Hooray! PN always come up trumps with their covers, and your input makes it all the more special. I haven't had chance to open my copy yet but I thought of Spring when I looked at the cover, so thank you for your part in that. x

Ah that's such a pretty set of china and how lovely it's been featured in this gorgeous magazine. I discovered this before Christmas and have been looking out for the next issue so it's down to town tomorrow to seek it out.

I love violet - the flower, the colour, so I'm rather envious of the tea cup!
