My Collection

I thought I would do what Nancy suggests and show what I collect. I am always a little behind on these things and blogger was being especially difficult this morning!!

I collect Port Meirion -- alot of it. I started collecting about 15 years ago. Most of it I have purchased here in Canada but whenever we go to England I pick up a few pieces. I am getting to the point where I don't really need anymore. I just love the beautiful, bright flowers on the white background, and so many different beautiful flowers. It reminds me of beautiful fabric.


I have an assortment of serving dishes and bowls, a teapot, a coffee pot and various smaller items.

I have canisters in my kitchen, I have plates, cups, bowls, pasta dishes. I have placemats and oven mitts.

In our other house when we remodeled the kitchen we put a backsplash of plain white tiles with Port Meirion tiles that I had shipped from England. When we sold that house - the kitchen tiles were one of the features that got the new owners to buy the house - she collected Port Meirion as well.

I even have it in my bathroom! Toothbush holder, soap dispensers, flower vases.

I even found a Port Meirion shower curtain -- I was so amazed that I of course bought it! Talk about obsessive.

    What a beautiful collection, Pam and thank you for checking out my blog and for the complements on my New York Beauty! Yes, it is nerve-racking to see them start driving by themselves. I hope Maggie will also drive defensively. That's what I've always tried to instill in them both as they have neared driving age! I enjoy perusing your blog.
