Five on Friday

I haven't taken part in Amy's Five on Friday for yonks, you know the score time restrictions, work, real life - blah blah blah!!

I like collecting things, apart from yarn, fabric & seeds I like collecting old things. Much to Mikes horror one of my collections consists of Jubilee/Coronation mugs -





So there you go five old mugs/cups - I would also like to say the collection doesn't stop there. It's quite a large collection of other related items. When the kitchen is finished I'm going to display it in all it's finery on a splendid old shelf unit!! It will be a special surprise for Mike :)

Enjoy your day all, do pop over to Amy to see the other Five on Friday posts x

  3. A Royal collection to coincide with Princess Charlotte's christening, surely there must be a mug to add to your collection. :-)

  6. Lovely. I've got a few coronation/jubilee mugs myself, some of which were passed on to me from my dad. Unfortunately, one or two old ones got broken when they moved house, I was really upset about that.

  10. That's a fun collection. I have a cup and saucer from the royal wedding in 1981 - the marriage didn't last but the cup and saucer are doing fine.

  11. Oh my goodness, I loved seeing all your coronation mugs! My daughter and I collect them too. I have some of the same ones you have pictured. It was started back in 1950's by my mom. And when my daughter lived in England, she added to our collection. I hope you have a great weekend :)
