95th Birthday, x

Just a wee one to mark a milestone for Nanna Carrie who is 95 today, so can't believe it, she is so young in spirit and an inspiration to all that know her. I am really in awe of her and can't believe that until recently she would even wear her high heels to walk quite a way to church, really just an amazing lady.
A very beautiful lady.

And what great taste drinking her tea today from Royal Albert china.

Another one of her china collections.

 I wonder how many of us are inspired by our parents or our grandparents out there. I was so in awe of my lovely talented Grandma Alice too, she was an amazing artist and crafter. And I certainly know that I didn't have a chance really not to be into vintage china as my Mom is a complete china hoarder. I'm sure it gradually crept up on her but in me it has manifested itself big time.

Think I may need to see the VCA.
(Vintage China Anonymous)

Although it wouldn't be quite anonymous would it!

Take care for now.

  1. 95! Wow what an age, happy birthday to your Nanna. Beautiful china too - I'm reading a book at the moment, The Vintage Tea Cup Club - think it would be right up your street Becca!

  2. Happy Birthday to your lovely Nanna! She sounds amazing and definitely has wonderful taste in china.

    I was named after my Granny (my mum's mum) and I maintain that she had more talent than our whole family put together. She was an incredibly kind, intelligent and creative woman.

  3. I love your darling cup!
    Happy weekend

  4. Congratulations to your Nanna! She is a lady to my taste!!
