I have been collecting American and European made porcelain, pottery, china and ironstone platters for 45 years, including Homer Laughlin China, tea cups & saucers, tea pots, I use my china as it is meant to be used; they make for a beautiful display and hold a lot of food during gatherings.
I always try to include the names, dates and manufacturing information for all the porcelain/china I sell.

I recently discovered lap loom weaving, which I find I love! The weaving media and materials out there are wonderful and I find I am addicted to fibers!
I come from a family of 15 and always have some new ideas to work with.
