    Doll Kitchen - MH20150022

    Starting at: £6.95

    The wonderful doll kitchens that have survived from the early 1800's and before can be seen in many a museum around Europe but most notably in the Toy Museum in Nuremburg. They have been a delight to small girls for decades, but amusing children was not their purpose in the first place Originally they were made as samples for salesmen to take with them when trying to persuade a household to update their kitchen. Here they could view all the latest mod-cons and be greatly tempted by a superb cooking range. Learn More

    Dream House,

    Hues of Blue

    Starting at: £6.95

    Through the centuries, the popularity of blue and white porcelain has never waned, perhaps due to its ability to lend itself well to all sorts of homes. Imposing platters and full dinner servies looked spohisticated in grand houses, while milk jugs and plates in a similar pattern were neatly lined on dressers in the smallest cottages. Indulge in in what must be a national passion for 'blue and white' with this elegant vase motif in classic gentle tones. Learn More

    National Treasures

    Starting at: £6.95

    The epitome of folk art in Sweden is the Dala horse which over the years has become the country's national symbol. Originally, they were found in a specific area of Sweden, the province of Dalarna and were painted in a wide variety of colours and patterns. Horse shapes were carved from offcuts of wood and painted to create toys for children. Learn More

    Porcelain Jugs,

    Starting at: £9.95

    Blue and white is such an elegant combination and it is perhaps the most admired and collected of antique porcelain. This collection of ten antique jugs are different in shape and pattern, forming the ideal subject for a Blackwork inspired embroidery. The use of breaking up of the pattern and using a lighter thread in places creates shading and gives the jugs a three-dimensional look. Learn More

  16. 112001

    Steam Tractor

    Starting at: £6.95

    The first two decades of the last century saw the steam tractor in its heyday. Many were built for the War Department in the first instance then sold off after the First World War to local authorities, hauliers, quarry owners and growers of all kinds. Today, of course, they are treasured machines; immaculately kept by their owners and proudly shown off at events during the summer months throughout the British Isles. I would rather like to have a go at driving one, but suspect it is one of those things that is not at all easy. Safer perhaps to sit and stitch one. Learn More

    Teatime Elegance, 245001

    Starting at: £6.95

    It is rather wonderful that the traditional china cup and saucer is firmly back in vogue. With the rising popularity of mugs, the fate of the bone china tea service looked bleak, but with the revival of afternoon tea, these delicate pieces are definitely here to stay. Learn More

    The Bus Stop

They are a lifeline for many and, on regular routes, become such a familiar sight that they punctuate the day like clockwork. The vehicles themselves vary widely and this sampler of buses features, amongst others, the old and new Routemasters and a familiar sight around these parts, the London to Dover coach, number 007.

  20. Victorian Tea Cups

    Victorian Tea Cups

    Starting at: £6.95

    Catalogues of household goods from Victorian times have a grand choice of tea cups and saucers. They come in many shapes; rounded, fluted and squared with plain or fancy handles. Every household would have had their best tea set and others for everyday use. It seems a little sad that we have lost such decorative pieces in many of our houses today, so what better than a stitched picture to show off a handsome collection. The designs can be used individually for greetings cards and other similar items and are, of course, wonderful for using up oddments of threads. Learn More
