I saw Humpty Dumpty on the shelf ~ I was excited, 'I don't have one of these!' ~ I picked it up, feels right, YAY!

I turned it over ~ OH! Not a Crown Lynn stamp - Bah! I looked again ~ is it even the right shape?? ~ and oh, the handle. A bit disappointed now, those tricky little transfers were used by everyone it seems Razz

I found a salt and pepper with a pattern on them that I am very familiar with, but the shapes of the set were not familiar to me at all. I could spy Made In ...... on the base of them so purchased them only to find when I got home in good light - Made In Australia on the base. A real boo boo heheee

The same day I was looking in the window of a closed St Vinnies shop when out popped a lady to feed the birds her left over lunch. She invited me in, but apologised for the lights not being on. I got a couple of things one of which was a lovely crisp green shape 3019 only to get it home and find it's an unknown shape and has England on the base.
Foiled again !!
