The Antique Boats...

These two antique boats have come to my possession from my grandma's showcase. I have no idea of their age or origin. My mum has seen them from her childhood so one can imagine.

The Little Boy Blue Mug

It was in this vintage mug that my grandma Anne used to give me milk when I was a kid. She had quite a collection of ceramic wares and I loved this mug for its cute picture of the little boy blue! During my college days, the mug slipped my hand and broke down to smithereens..but I didnt giveup. I collected every broken piece and glued them up and put the mug in my showcase. It has stayed there ever since as a beautiful piece of nostalgia...
Little boy blue is a famous English nursery rhyme first published in Tommy Thumb's "Little song book' in the year 1744.
