Thanks for all the C&C for the first two plates

My mother encouraged me from an early age to regularly visit local elderly people who lived alone, and this is something I have always enjoyed doing. Mrs Wheatley was one of them, and she became a great friend over the years. She was a large lady with an even larger personality.

On her coal fire she would toast me a piece of bread with her fork. I donít think anyone other than her ever made me toast that way. Mrs. Wheatley was a Methodist and a local speaker at womenís meetings. She travelled on the bus to many villages to speak to groups of people, and would often share her message at the bus stop en route!!

When Tony and I got married she gave us a cardboard box with odds and bods from her cupboards that she didnít need any more. There were several blue and white plates in the box. Those plates started off my collection, and this is my favourite. Iíve always loved blue and white crockery. My Mum had a willow pattern collection at one point, but unlike them this does not have a central picture.

Thank you for following the stories so far. I will work on the next three images over the weekend when Iíve got a bit more time. I keep thinking I will get quicker, but what I do get is more critical of my work and so Iím no faster at all.
Thanks for looking
Helen

I have missed this series so far Mavis, but looked back and throughly enjoyed the connection between each plate and the person connected to it. I will look in to see the rest on sunday when I get back from my trip. Trish

By 'eck, Helen, reading your notes brings back memories of when I were a lad! I can remember toasting bread on a two-pronged fork in front of the coal fire - electric toasters hadn't been invented then...
Another wonderful montage, Helen.

A beautifully created image, and your narrative brings good thoughts to my mind - I make fire toast every winter, also, I grew up with Willow Pattern, and still have some.
