A couple of pieces from my blue ceramic collection. I buy way too many (vintage) cups, vases, plates and bowls, but find it so lovely to use different kinds of tableware. Here a part of my blue collection. I think the combination of blue and white looks great, don’t you?

Four Mainzelmännchen

I found some old toys from my mother; four Mainzelmännchen. She used to play with these little German people when she was a child. The Mainzelmännchen are now dancing on our stereo. It makes me happy, everytime I look at them.
