Tuesday Treasures

It's Australia Day on Thursday so... a little piece of Australiana for my Tuesday Treasure.

When I was 10 or 12 my family gave me my first piece of Aynsley china. 
It was very special and grown up to receive fine bone china in a box and I had be very 
careful to look after it. 
I was delighted especially because it had my name on it, albeit a different spelling. 
Since then I have collected more pieces over the years. 
Mum and Dad brought this little dish back for me from a Sydney holiday as a souvenir. 
It's one of my favourites. 
I much prefer a vintage, second hand reminder of a place than the modern, plasticky variety.  

Hope you like my Tuesday Treasure! I am drooling over a vintage cream with green stripes
kitchen mixer over at Picklebug's blog She has more Tuesday Treasures there ~ have a look.
