Here we are on Christmas Eve and it's a case of if it's not ready now it never will be!!! The veggies to peel for tomorrow, a couple of desserts to make including the Pear, Raspberry and Almond Tart we had a few years, that I posted about here. Also making Chocolate Cheesecake Candy Cane Bars, the recipe for that is here.
Thought I'd show off my scarf I finished it over the weekend, looks okay. I see Michaels has similar type of yarn on sale so will maybe pick up a couple more balls, as they make great presents.
Wanted to show you my latest purchase from the charity shop. Its a Bishop & Stonier tureen, minus the lid, I think? Its in the dalrymple green pattern, here is a link to the blue pattern I would love to know more, but I have come to a dead end? I paid $15 for it.
The detail is wonderful. There are a couple of chips and signs of wear, but I don't care.
The back mark on the pieces confirm who made it and dates it between 1891 - 1939
I have bids in on a number of other items over the next couple of weeks including a Shelly Cup and Saucer.
There will be a post tomorrow, but I do want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas to those of you who are popping by today. Have a lovely time and a great meal.
Today's Christmas Song is lovely:
