My first piece of Beryl Ware!

I have several bits of utlitly china, but found my first piece of proper Beryl Ware at the tip on Friday - just one saucer on its own, but I know, just know, that thee will be more coming along, now I'm looking out for it more closely! This had been used as a plant saucer and was filthy, but it cleaned up very wll, and it's just lovely now.
Started drying some flowers with a view to the later year, for making pot pourri mixtures etc. These are the rose petals, smelling rather gorgeous. They're presently drying over the Rayburn stove, and I'm hoping they manage to keep some of the colour too.
