VTT - Planter and Figurine

Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursdays! Click on the photo to see what everyone is posting about today!

My submission today is my newest "collection" - if you have three of any like items, it's automatically referred to as a collection! I've had the rectangle-shaped planter (unmarked) "forever" - I love the colors and the morning glories. The bird has been around a while, too, also unmarked. Have always paired the two together because of the colors. The third, dh bought about a month ago, is Royal Copley. The blue is more turquoisy, and the pink is more mauve, but close enough for the time being!

Here's a zoom-out shot. This little desk was my niece's. This odd-shaped corner is in my bedroom, under the eaves - "nothing" fits in it properly!

I have those eaves in my upstairs and they are
not good for placing furniture. I totally understand. Your display looks good together!

I've had so much fun just now going through your blog, each entry is just as good as the one before it. Love your VTT items today.
Such pretty, muted colors and shapes.
