preparations for Christmas. It's a busy time, but I feel like my Christmas has
already happened... my present-to-self has arrived :)
This is my updated collection...
I've fallen in love with a 1950s dinnerware range by Franciscan Potteries called
Starburst. It was only made between 1954 and 1957. I just love the fresh and fun
1950s vibe. As you can see, it's taken top shelf position ;)
Last month I was an obsessive eBay lurker... all these amazing pieces appeared
and some kind of craziness came over me. Thank goodness for Christmas and the
certainty that my family would greatly appreciate me arranging my own present ;)
Do you do this too? Is it a universal truth that we purchase, wrap and place our
own gifts under the tree these days? I'm certainly thrilled with mine :)
The only thing I really wanted but wasn't able to get was a Starburst teapot...
but then there's always my birthday in March! (hint hint family)
Hope you've all found your special gifts-to-self for this year, or that you have
lovely families who find just the right thing for you :)
