Rare Alfred Meakin...

Every now and then things just fall into place, right day, right time, right place.

That's how this lovely set came to me
I had no idea at the time how rare and hard to find it was
What I did know was that it was exceptional and just so right!

Alfred Meakin
Dog Walker pattern
Interchangable with his Poodles and Parissienne patterns

So much style and fun, in such small pieces

If you've ever watched the Disney film 101 Dalmations this reminds so much of the style of drawing....even the images could have been plucked out of the film!  
The bit at the beginning when they go for a walk in the park and Pongo tries to match his master to a lady

*I do love the original 101 Dalmations*

Young ladies parading in their fashionably stylish 1950's clothing, walking their equally fashionable dogs...poodles, setters, terriers!

This pattern is so of the era
if it had a voice it would be purring 1950's dahling



and to have found almost a full set in one sweep?!

4 cups & saucers
4 large dinner plates
4 bowls
3 side plates

all have been listed on the Priddy Priddy etsy store

I have more Priddiness being listed on Etsy through the week, so please pop by if you fancy a peek!

So Much Priddiness...

I'm quite sure that Priddiness isn't a real in the dictionary word, but it does describe something Pretty from Priddy Priddy...

The Esty shop is being stocked, I am making a real effort to list things on there.  
It has been heart warming that the little snippets I've been listing are getting liked and re-homed.

This little chap is the most recent addition
A retro/vintage terrier figurine


He just reminds me so much of the Cath Kidston Stanley.

My eldest daughter has a thing for Swan planters, 
{a girly with super taste!}
and kindly let me list this one


Beardy Bobs Candles...


Pretty by day

but

Oh so BEAUTIFUL by night


Just a quick post to see how everyone is?  Weather has been quite dire, not so super lemonade & giggles summer so far.

Sunny days...

Oh hasn't the weather been amazing!?
Yesterday the hottest 1st July ever recorded here in the UK...
I have to confess I did whinge a bit yesterday, even the wind was like a warm hairdryer!

But it has given me the excuse to tuck myself away in the shade and catch up on a few bits.

Saturday just passed we were at a Garden Party Fundraiser for the Primrose Unit.
It was glorious weather.
I only took a few things along as I wanted to enjoy the event/atmosphere.



I did worry that the Beardy Bobs Soy Wax Candles might melt in the heat but they held on through even the hottest midday sun


I was assisted by my helper, whose rates were quite reasonable
...as much ice-cream as we could both manage!

I've also taken the time to take a few snaps and list a few bits over on Etsy


'Kev' the donkey may just be my favourite, but this little deer has been giving me the big brown eyes for attention...


and amongst other things a few pretty and kitschy tins have found their way onto Etsy



The weather has taken a cloudy break so no more photo's but I will be listing a few ready to ship Beardy Bobs Candles over the next few days

HAPPY WEEKENDING

When the end/begining is in sight...

Life so far this year hasn't been what I had expected, hoped or wished for.
There is no mystery, a family loss has hit us for six.
Time has been needed and taken.


*****

Back in this blog post I said that changes were afoot, it has taken longer than I had ever thought to put those changes into action but time has been quite a precious commodity.

I don't want to and I wont show you a half hearted/half finished effort.

There is still much to do...so if I am quiet here you know where I am... keeping busy back at the Priddy Priddy HQ.
