Okay, some explanation needed I suppose. I stopped buying 'things' a while back
mainly because we were running out of room to put them (and I didn't want people
to begin to think I was a closet hoarder!).
But a few weeks ago I came across these 'old' plates by the Alfred Meakin Co. (click)
which were being auctioned off to the highest bidder by putting one's bid
on a list with everyone else who wanted them. I found out my bid was the highest.
And here they are. Something about them I couldn't resist......
Winter is very near and what a better read than one of Dickens' classics....
now that we have some background I think I will re-visit one.
