Oh Leni, what a beautiful display.....they are so elegant, and I love the way you have the Art Deco ladies at each end....as though they are shepherding the swans together.....beautiful. :sun: :sun:

BUT!  You must have a red Dilly Duck to complete your red Whitefriars display.......off you go to eBay! :wsh:

... thanks to Anik R. I now know how to call this: "Make it mingle so that the husband" (or wife) "doesn't notice it's a newly acquired piece".

Yes NKP (henceforth I shall call you Nankipoo!!) and Anik, we all have to adopt the 'Oh I got that one AGES ago' or 'I'd forgotten I had that one' attitude with our other halves, having secreted them amongst the other hundred or so for a while....then it can come out into the open!:pb:

Who made the blacked legged sheep in your lovely display, Nankipoo?  I do like it.

I've only got very old images - my camera doesn't "do" mid distance or far distance - it only does close-up and I think it's reverted to only doing the very close-up close-up.
But here's a taster.

... off topic, but the "black legged sheep" is actually an original Nankipoo design (;)) Delftware cow !

wonderful display Sue  -  I'll take the bottom right compartment from you, if that's o.k. ;)

Ooo!  I like the cow, Nankipoo!  :D  (And the new name!  :24: )

Sue, as I've said before, I do love your display!  I also love the way it's 'themed within the main theme'  ;D

Great display Sue...very themed and very artistically balanced in arrangement......I like it very much indeed.

Nankipoo....a delft cow, not a sheep!!...did you design it, make it, or what?  I love it! :rah:

It's still sort of themed, just a lot more jam-packed now - but it has to be said, Mdina just lends itself to making themed arrangements!

Paul, paper napkins - how sophisticated! Here, you get a bit of kitchen roll - and if you're lucky, it's not been used for something else (cleanish - such as a water spill) first. (sorry, Anik, if that makes you  :-X )

Sorry, though, my IoWSG "Blue Azurene" Michael Harris Fish (unsigned, but he did make it), is not for sale!
This is a more out-of-focus, but bigger picture of all the shelves.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 :thud: Wow!  Magnificent, Sue!   :hiclp:  There's even more than last time I saw it!  ;D 

My Victorian Vaseline / uranium cabinet has also been getting more jam-packed!  ::) 

Here's the latest pic of my 'Triffids & Audreys' theme  ;)
