What’s also fun is that they get me to look at patterns and shapes I would not otherwise pursue. You can see among these photos a variety of patterns not elsewhere in my collection…the cockerels, cottages and even tiny toby jugs and the only commemorative pieces I have in my collection.
As a toy collector as well, they seem to blend in well with my other displays. The tea sets make great companions to Jody Battaglia's folk art monkeys sitting in a child’s hutch in the guest room.
And I owe a big thanks to my great gal pals, Kathy Nuttall and Kathy Collins, for the find of my new wall hanging “mini shelf”.
We found it in a booth at Brimfield and it wasn’t until I got it home that I realized how perfect it was to host them all. I am grateful that they encouraged me to buy it and lug it through the fields back to the truck.
