I've got a monkey on my back. I don't really know what to say about this except that I just cannot pass by a pretty piece of china in the thrift store. Do I need it? No. Do I have space to store it? No. But in my defense, it's Minton. Minton! For $2. Isn't it pretty?
And while this plate is not the same manufacturer or pattern, it does match nicely, doesn't it? So that had to come home with me, too. Right?
Lastly, here is a small soup tureen -- maybe for an individual serving? You know I love dishes with lids on them... Besides, it's creamware, and I'm sort of collecting that for my kitchen.
OK, so I may have a slight problem. But you love reading about it. You know you do.
