This is my favourite collection.....

Finally after many delays setbacks and excuses, I have found the time to post for "This is my Favourite Collection", A great meme suggestion from 'Hyena in Petticoats' continuing along the theme originally created by 'Three Buttons'...

Well I have collected many things over the years and still own most of the collections too, tucked away in little boxes are shells, coins, stamps, Snoopy paraphenalia, Holly Hobbie bits'n'peices, loads of references to Horses which really gives you an idea as to what age I was when I started these collections, still have them all though.

However as I'm seemingly grown up (debatable) the collecting is more mature? such as Interior Design magazines (I still have my original copies, not complete of the best Interior design magazine in my humble opinion called 'Interior Architecture' from the '80's-great pictures, but that's for another post later), ceramics and just started collecting prints from unknown artists!


Anyway getting back to business, I started a collection of ceramics, it is but very small three pieces to be exact and no not my japanese mugs, these are something unique again and obviously very influenced by Picasso, an artist with whom I have a love hate relationship with. I do love his portraits though and these ceramics are from Italy and are painted by an artist who signs as 'Desimone' Click the link and see the example, which is the best I could find after millions of entries from Ebay...so here's my little collection...one my partner calls "The stuff that mummy only likes"...which is a unsubtle reference to his lack of taste and my superior one!

Personally I like your collection - it may only be 3 items, but they are all original and creative. I have seen this work before. Wish I had bought a piece during my travels.
